Kivimies area, Espoo

Kivimies area uniquely combines the marine environment with a convenient location between two metro stations and next to the Raide-Jokeri light rail stops. Currently, 150,000 square metres of new construction and approximately 3,000 new inhabitants are targeted for the area serving mainly Aalto University and the government operations.

New vibrant urban environment in Otaniemi

“Complementing the community structure based on an efficient rail transport is justified, with the Kivimies area playing an important role in developing the whole of Otaniemi into a vibrant urban environment where living, jobs and services are mixed. Some state operations in Otaniemi will be centralized and concentrated, which will allow for the properties that are no longer used by the state to be developed for new purposes. Senate Properties is developing the Kivimies area in co-operation with Aalto University Properties, and the main objectives of the supplemental construction concern the area between the streets of Tutkijanpolku and Miestentie and the shore area along the Otaniementie street. The change of the Kivimies city plan began in spring 2019.”
