Helsinki New Horizons

Keeping Helsinki on the growth path is a theme of no small national importance in Finland. We are building new homes, day-care centres, schools, parks and streets to facilitate everyday excellence. We are welcoming new companies and offering premises for a whole range of business needs. As new districts are being built and existing areas are being revitalised in various ways, this sends a strong message: Helsinki is a very, very appealing place and both people and businesses want to make their homes here.
