Excursion to the Tripla site
The bus leaves on Friday at 09.30 am from the bus stop in front of Kiasma. Return to same point at around 12.30 am.
Central Pasila will be one of the biggest and most important development projects in Helsinki over the coming years. Tripla, the heart of the new Pasila, will link both East and West Pasila and the planned high-rises on its south side to the new residential area on its north side.
Tripla will be a three-block complex that includes a shopping centre, a parking garage, public transportation hub, housing, hotels and offices. The total area will be an impressive 183,000 floor square meters. Tripla will be completed in stages during 2019–2020.
Upon its completion, Tripla will offer around nearly 400 new apartments and 7,000 jobs. But there’s more building going on in Central Pasila, too. The Rail Yard Quarters, which is an area built to the north of Tripla, will create 3,000 homes and 1,000 new jobs. To the south, 8-10 skyscrapers will include new residences and office space. In the year 2040, Central Pasila will be home to a total of 5,000 new residents and 13,000 new jobs.
