Two shared spaces are now available for residents in the Kruunuvuorenranta district in eastern Helsinki.
One of the shared spaces is located on the attic level of a parking hall. The space comprises a gym, an events and meeting hall, and a leisure-activities area for crafts. The Borgströminmäki shared space is located in the same building and shared with a day care centre. The space is used by the day care centre in the daytime, and it is available for residents in the evening and on weekends. The space has a larger hall suitable for sports and meetings and smaller areas usable, for example, for remote work. Both spaces have a kitchen.
— We planned the uses of shared spaces together with residents in early 2016. There will be more shared spaces. The Haakonlahti area will have waterfront saunas for use by residents. We have plans for a shared space especially for events in the Kruunuvuori area, placed right at the water’s edge and with particularly fine views. The planning has not started yet on either of these new shared spaces, says Project Manager Pirjo Sirén of the City of Helsinki.
The shared spaces can be booked by residents of Kruunuvuorenranta through the local Kruunuverkko network. Kruunuvuorenranta contractors pay the City for the shared spaces at the beginning of each building construction project. As shared spaces separate from residential buildings are built in the area, single housing companies can make fewer such spaces.
