Laajasalo Local Centre – A modern local centre with an excellent location in eastern Helsinki

A new local centre will be built in Laajasalo to replace the current shopping centre. The modern shopping centre will be situated in an excellent location by the busy Laajasalontie.

  • 8,000 m2 leasable retail spaces
  • Built on two floors, the centre will offer excellent daily consumer goods services.
  • A total of 150–200 parking spaces will be located in front of the centre and partly underground.
  • The centre is planned to be completed in autumn 2018.

A shopping centre with services for all everyday needs

The shopping centre will have 8,000 m2 of commercial premises available for lease. The premises will be ideal for two supermarket-sized stores and a diverse array of small specialty stores, and private and public services.

Visible and central location

The shopping centre is located in Laajasalo in eastern Helsinki along the busy Laajasalontie. The direct distance to the centre of Helsinki is three kilometres, but the driving distance to downtown Helsinki is some 10 kilometres. The closest top-class commercial services are located in Herttoniemi at a distance of five kilometres.

The distance to downtown Helsinki may become significantly shorter in the future because the bridge to be built between Kruunuvuorenranta and the city centre, including a tram line, is located two kilometres from the shopping centre. According to the boulevard vision of the City of Helsinki, the new tram line will travel right in front of the shopping centre.

Growing population within the impact zone

The commercial impact zone of the Laajasalo shopping centre consists of Laajasalo and Santahamina. The shopping centre is located in the Yliskylä area which is the most significant and ever growing residential centre in Laajasalo. A significant amount of new purchasing power will be present in Kruunuvuori which offers new residences for 11,000 people. The Kruunuvuorenranta district will be completed after 2025.

Centre with a BREEAM environmental certificate

The Laajasalo shopping centre will reach the Very Good level of the international BREEAM environmental certification system. The requirements set by BREEAM, the most common environmental certification system in Europe, guide the design of the shopping centre in ten different categories. Various evaluation criteria include the transportation distance of building materials, the surrounding infrastructure, accessibility using public transportation, energy efficiency, the use of chemicals and waste processing.
