Finnoo in short

Finnoo development will create a totally new and exciting seaside mixed-use community that will meet the highest sustainability goals.

Highrise buildings in the heart of the development, top-end multi-family housing by the seashore, lush parks, nature sanctuaries and shore line boardwalks ‒ Finnoo is the new Espoo at its very best.

Finnoo can be characterized by its location, the last undeveloped costal area in metropolitan area running from beautiful archipelago seashore to pine growing granite hills. Finnoo has a great connection to make sure it can be reached by all and by all means and it will get its own stop along the West Metro by 2020. A detailed planning is put on pedestrian and bicycle accesses and lanes.

 

Seafront homes close to the beautiful archipelago of Espoo create exceptional possibilities for people to live by the sea and enjoy marine atmosphere. At the moment, some 700 people live in Finnoo and it will be home for 16,000 by 2035.

Finnoo development

 

Finnoo is being built according to high sustainable development principles, which is evident in energy solutions and material selection. Residential building will focus on four areas: the urban metro centre, all-green Djupsundsbäcken, seaside Finnoo marina and the northern Finnoonkartano. Different sections of Finnoo are connected with lush parks. Even a wet-land nature sanctuary will be formed to Finnoo.

The plan is to make the whole of Finnoo an energy-efficient and carbon-neutral district. As for the sustainability goal of Finnoo many matters are related to production of energy and to use of energy. Due to its location and good connections, thousands will find their homes or workplaces in Finnoo in the future.   

The development includes more than 200 properties for residential, commercial and office projects. Total development of more than 1 million sqm with real estate value worth 4.5 billion euros gives many business opportunities for investors.   

Most important development projects

Energy-efficient and carbon-neutral district

Djupsundsbäcken, a green residential building project of about 130,000 sqm in total will start in 2016 and will be mainly finished by 2030.

Houses will use both solar and geothermal energy. One of the first new energy innovation that will be implemented is that street structure are filled with geothermal energy collecting pipes. During the summer extra heat from the building cooling systems is returned to ground with the same pipelines.

There will be open district heating, district cooling and electricity networks in Finnoo area. Every building can buy and sell energy via open networks. Same price mechanism will manage energy flows and also demand side management located in every building.

All type of solutions can be integrated to open networks and all type of solutions treated equally regardless of ownership, technology and location. Targets for entire energy system in Finnoo are energy efficiency maximization and CO2 emission minimization as well as peak shaving and high share of renewable, recycled or reused energy.

The second phase of the construction, some 220,000 sqm in total, will be completed between 2024‒2034. Finnoo elementary school with its sport park will also be built here.
