Local detailed plansMatinkylä

The objective of the landowners is to construct residential blocks of flats in the block. The dense construction of detached and semi-detached houses as per the current local detailed plan has not been realised due to challenging conditions for laying foundations. The designers will pay attention to fitting the project to its surroundings.
