The unique Forum Block complex consists of six properties. The buildings located in the most central location in Helsinki boast individual details and a sense of nobleness brought on by decades of cultural heritage.

Simonkatu 8/Yrjönkatu 31 is the corner building that was originally owned by the temperance association Koitto. The building completed in 1906 also hosted one of the most well-known amateur theatres for workers in Finland, Koiton Näyttämö. It is also the predecessor of Helsinki City Theatre. Many cultural associations, restaurants and boutiques operate in the property.

All properties in the Forum Block have been awarded a BREEAM In-Use Very Good -level certification. BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is an international green building certification system aimed at reducing the environmental impact of the use of buildings as well as the development of healthier working environments.

The Forum Block is also fully carbon neutral in terms of energy consumption during use.
