Construction

Niittykumpu will continue to evolve in the coming years. New homes are currently under construction at several locations.

In the Niittykallio area, old office buildings and detached houses have been demolished, and apartment buildings are being built to accommodate some 1,200 people. The area is due to be completed by the end of 2022.

The first car dealership in the area between Merituulentie and Olari Church has now been demolished, and four apartment buildings are being built in its place, providing housing for 600 new residents. The current petrol station will relocate to a plot by Mankkaanlaaksontie, which enables the construction of a square planned for the area.

Apartments for 300 people are under construction in the Tonttumuori area north of Niittykummun koulu. Smaller low-rise apartment buildings will also be built on the northern edge of the area. 

New homes for about 1,500 people will be built on the former Outokumpu site. The old Outokumpu headquarters have been renovated into a school called Uusikummun koulu. A new day care centre will also be opened in the area.

The look of central Niittykumpu will change significantly in the coming years, as the parking arrangements of the housing companies south of Merituulentie will undergo changes. This will enable the construction of five impressive apartment buildings along Merituulentie.

New construction in the area will not replace its greenery. The old park areas will be improved and new ones built. To make dog owners happy, a new dog park will be built in Tonttumaa.
