Helsinki, A Transforming METROPOLIS

You can look all around Europe, and you’d still be hard-pressed to find a metropolis more dynamic than Helsinki. Helsinki is in the middle of a massive transformation that will totally rewrite the script for the city.

Helsinki’s growth relies on strong foundations. It is expanding powerfully in the inner city on land vacated from former industrial and port operations. Many of Europe’s biggest urban development projects are underway in Helsinki. New urbanism and emphasizing accessibility by all means of transportation make Helsinki one of the most progressive cities in terms of land-use and mobility.

Helsinki provides the perfect mix of economic, social and ecological sustainability. Openness of business and administration is a key element in Helsinki - the Metropolis that has a great recipe for quality of life – as well as for business opportunities.

Helsinki wants to become the most attractive city for people and companies working for a better world. Living in Helsinki is increasingly smooth and comfortable – its inhabitants creating, and living, the world's most advanced way of life.

Welcome, tervetuloa, willkommen!

Deputy Mayor
City of Helsinki

We would like to express our sincere thanks to all who visited our stand during the ExpoReal trade fair in Munich. The exhibition was a great success for us and it was a pleasure to meet you personally, giving us the opportunity to showcase big urban development projects that are underway in the Helsinki metropolitan area. The discussions with you and all other visitors were very inspiring and gave us very positive feedback. In this connection, we hope to have the chance to see you again at MIPIM 2018 in Cannes.
