Several noteworthy property development projects are being planned in the environment of the terminus of the Jokeri Light Rail line. Construction of the terminus next to the metro station in Keilaniemi was confirmed when the area’s detailed plan entered into force in summer 2020.
Espoo’s Head of Technical and Environment Services Olli Isotalo says that the area’s rapid development is affected by the metro and Jokeri Light Rail as well as the upcoming underground carpark and the tunnelling of Ring I, which was completed last year.
“The area’s appeal is increased by the renovated Aalto University campus in Otaniemi, the headquarters of global companies in Keilaniemi, and the park connecting Keilaniemi and Otaniemi above the Ring I tunnel. Keilaniemi is growing into a diverse maritime district where people also live close to excellent services,” he states.
