Espoonlahti is a rapidly growing district in southwestern Espoo.
Central Espoonlahti is one of the most important areas under development in Espoo. The long-term goal is to build a dense, lively urban centre that combines urban housing and an extensive selection of services.
Central Espoonlahti will be accessible by the metro after the extension of the West Metro from Matinkylä is completed in 2023. The new metro station and bus terminal will be connected to a new shopping centre, Lippulaiva.
The number of inhabitants in Espoonlahti is expected to grow to 20,000 by 2050
