City of Helsinki is organising a competition to find a partner for the development and implementation of Makasiiniranta at South Harbour. The competition is a two-phase quality and concept competition and it's intended for operators in the construction and real estate industry or consortia formed by these, which have the technical, economic and other conditions to plan and complete a very demanding and high-quality construction project.
Makasiiniranta at South Harbour area is part of the Helsinki National Landscape and a nationally significant valuable cultural environment. The place is central and symbolically very valuable and is part of the maritime façade of Helsinki's historic centre.
The objective of the competition is to develop the area as part of the expanding pedestrian city centre and the seaside trail around the shores of Helsinki for Helsinki residents to share and enjoy, and as a location for the new Architecture and Design Museum.
A key goal of the competition is to produce an overall land use plan of exceptionally high quality and functionality that implements the City's objectives in terms of land use, urban space and other aspects and serves as a basis for the future development, detailed planning and implementation of the area.
Matters to be taken into consideration in planning an overall solution for the area include the landscape and cityscape values of the area, as well as the significance and identity of the location.
The competition also involves brainstorming new functions and activities for the valuable buildings in the area with protection values kept in mind.
