Uutta Helsinkiä Honkasuo
Honkasuo is a new community that utilises wood to the max. In fact, when it comes to residential development, Honkasuo is the biggest new wood construction area in Helsinki. All local buildings are made of wood – now and in the future. By mid-2020’s, Honkasuo will be a “modern village” with 2,000 residents and plenty of community spirit.
Located in northwest Helsinki, neighbouring Vantaa, Honkasuo has a green past, too, as the area is known for its forests and meadows. These delightful nature elements have been preserved, for the most part, and the wave of sustainable development that is sweeping over the area has a definite environmental/ecological edge, as well.
