Our site is located on 100 hectares of reclaimed land known as Jätkäsaari. The relocation of Helsinki’s port facilities to the eastern edge of the city in 2008 has initiated the largest transformation of land use in the city since the industrial era. As many as six large areas in metropolitan Helsinki, including Jätkäsaari, are in various stages of planning as a result.
Jätkäsaari will be developed over the next two decades to house 16.000 residents, 6.000 jobs, offices and public services. Several new tram line extensions will provide access to the city centre only three kilometres away while parking space and vehicular traffic will be minimized through a mobility management plan.
It is our intention to stimulate innovation in sustainable architecture, energy efficiency, and city-building solutions. We hope that a model of sustainable urbanism emerges from the proposals that will not only serve the City of Helsinki and its inhabitants, but more broadly, be a learning model for development globally.
