Construction of Finnoo

Construction of Finnoo will continue throughout the 2020s. The construction work will be steered by low-emission and sustainable solutions.

The goal is to make Finnoo a pioneer of sustainable urban construction. The construction work will be steered by low-emission, sustainable solutions, ranging from planning to energy use and building materials. Among other solutions, the area will have district heating and district cooling systems, aiming to retain the energy in closed circulation. The plans for the new district include the construction of Finland’s first geothermal local heating network, which would enable the realisation of a residential area with zero emissions from heating and cooling.

Builders selected to build Finnoo are required to commit to solutions that improve the energy efficiency of the buildings, one example of which is the measurement of their energy consumption.

Streets and public utility services are being built at a rapid pace area by area as the planning progresses.

Buildings of different heights will give Finnoo an urban look. Substantial parts of Finnoo have been allocated to serve as parks and recreational areas.

Housing construction near the metro centre started in spring 2020, and the first residents moved into their new homes in 2021. Things are also happening in the western part of the area in the Djupsundsbäcken where a lot of construction work is under way.

Construction of the new city district will continue throughout the 2020s. The entire Finnoo area will mainly be completed in the 2030s.
