Located by the railway, Espoon keskus is Espoo’s heart. It is currently undergoing an extensive renewal. Espoon keskus combines excellent traffic connections, versatile and constantly improving services with a traditional Finnish cultural landscape.
The district will become even easier to reach in the future. A decision on the extension of the City Rail Link from Leppävaara will be made in the coming years. A fast rail connection to Turku, the “one-hour train”, is also being planned.
The renewal of Espoon keskus will continue in the coming years. The goal is to turn the former administrative centre into a modern and more comfortable urban centre with homes and jobs.
Some old buildings will be demolished. New residential premises and high-quality routes for pedestrians and cyclists will be built along excellent traffic and public transport connections. The cluster of office buildings will also include a new Espoo House where Espoo residents and city staff can encounter.
The evolving urban centre is located right next to the Espoonjoki river. The Espoo Cathedral, the most important historical building in Espoo, also stands by the river.
