Additional information

The planning area is located in Vanttila and Kauklahti city districts. The area is bordered by Hyttimestarintie in the south, Kauklahdenväylä in the west and Hansatie in the north. To the east, the area extends about 400 metres east of Vantinportti to an unzoned field in the Espoonjoki river valley. Espoonjoki river runs through the whole area.

Planning ensures the alignment of the conservation areas, natural assets and new construction in the area. Particular attention will be paid to fostering the Espoonjoki ecological link and to creating an urban, yet village-like atmosphere in the new blocks.
