Housing and services
Keilaniemi is being modernised and developed. The goal is to build it into a lively district with jobs, homes and versatile services.
Keilaniemi is situated along the metro line and also served by good bus, car and bicycle routes. The final stop of the Jokeri Light Rail line will be built next to the metro station.
Office and residential premises will be built next to the Jokeri Light Rail terminus. Passengers that arrive at the terminus can easily transfer to the metro via a tunnel or continue towards Otaniemi by following a new pedestrian and bicycle traffic route that will pass under Kuusisaarentie.
A new square called Keilaniementori will be built near Keilaniemenranta. Keilaniemenpromenadi, a pedestrian and bicycle traffic route, follows the shoreline right next to the waves and will become part of the Waterfront Walkway. New services will emerge along the Waterfront Walkway as well.
A tunnel will be opened for Ring Road I between Tapiola and Keilaniemi, and a park will be built above the tunnel. Four round blocks of flats will be built in the area. The highest one will be 40 storeys tall.

Keilaniemi will also expand towards Otaniemi. Plans have been made to build new apartments in the Kivimies area where the two districts meet. This will create a functional link between the districts, not to mention a new kind of a housing location that is also expected to attract international interest. The lowest floors of the apartment blocks will include premises for services and start-ups.
The extensive commercial, public and cultural services are within easy reach in Tapiola, right next to Keilaniemi.
