Office premises, shopping centres and new properties in the best locations
Our office premises are located in growth centres and in the heart of towns in excellent locations with good traffic connections and services. Our selection includes options from leasing a workstation to constructing your own office building.
We own the leading shopping centres in Helsinki, Tampere and Oulu (Forum, Citycenter, Ratina, Elo, Zeppelin) and numerous brick-and-mortar properties in the centres of the largest cities with busy customer flows.
However, property development is more than just constructing properties. We are in constant cooperation with cities and officials to construct lively areas and good environments for work and living. Our properties are designed to be environmentally efficient.
Our vision is to be the leading property investment company in Finland. For us, being a forerunner means being sustainable. We want to create spaces and operating environments that promote sustainable operations and increase well-being and a sense of community.
Our company has been recognised amongst the best companies in the global GRESB Real Estate Assessment for the tenth year running. This recognition reflects our sustainability practices and our constant work to promote sustainable development across our business.
Our sustainability is based on long-term development work. In the case of in-use energy consumption, we are aiming for full carbon dioxide neutrality by 2030. Our goal is to reduce the energy consumption in properties by 20% compared to the 2016–2018 levels by 2030.
