Espoo Centre

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 area will become increasingly easy to reach in the future when a city rail link to central Helsinki and the fast rail connection to Turku, the “one-hour train”, become a reality.

The extensive development of Espoon keskus will continue in 2019. The area will be transformed from an old cluster of office buildings into a more inviting area with homes and workplaces. Old buildings will be demolished and replaced by new residential, business and office premises. Espoon keskus will also include a new Espoo House where Espoo residents and city staff can encounter.

Plenty of new residential premises will be built in the near future. For example, 1500 people are expected to move to the areas surrounding the Vaakunatori square and Suviniitty in Espoon keskus.

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.
