Tender for Helsinki Masterplan with 10+ skyscrapers to be announced in December
This time a year ago World Cities Network was a budding initiative, reaching out to city administrations across the world to encourage change-makers to build more resilient cities. Today the organisation has announced that it is working with the City of Helsinki on a monumental redevelopment project with a tender due to be released in December. WAN’s Business Information Service will be providing this tender and free trials of the service are currently available.
The redevelopment masterplan will focus on a site 3km north of Helsinki and create the city’s first high rise business and media district. In total, the Pasila masterplan will encompass 1 million sq m of office space and 500,000 sq m of housing, including 10+ high rise towers to be capped at 120m in height.
Helsinki features prominently on WAN’s Business Information Service with the team publishing 10 tenders for the city in 2013 alone. These have ranged from a 45,000 sq m children’s hospital to a €600m railway extension scheme complete with three new stations and the construction of a new police station.
