Saukonpaa Master Plan (Saukonpaa zoning area)

Overlooking the beautiful open sea, the modern precinct of Jätkäsaari is currently under construction on a southern peninsula recently vacated by a cargo port – only minutes away from the centre of Helsinki.

Currently under construction by the sea in southern Helsinki, by the year 2025 Jätkäsaari will accommodate approximately 16,000 residents and 6,000 jobs. This new development will form a distinctive part of the central city area – only ten minutes by tram from the very centre of Helsinki.

In Jätkäsaari, one can enjoy the heart-of-the-city ambiance, achieved by densely built single-entrance blocks and roof-level building. Good services, street-front shops, sidewalk cafés and a network of trams, as well as pedestrian and cycle routes, will also contribute to the feeling of being in the very centre of the city.

The proximity and sounds of the sea, the spectacular view from the parks and the waterfront, along with the boat marina and the passenger ship terminal, all add their distinctive flavour to the area.

Planned according to the principles of sustainable development, Jätkäsaari enjoys a central location, with a dense urban structure within reach of the environmentally sound operations of trams and the metro.

A commercial centre will be constructed in Jätkäsaari. Ground floors of residential buildings along the main streets will be utilised for business use, and the largest commercial premises will be situated in the precinct’s central blocks, with additional office space to be built near the harbour.
