Jätkäsaari mini meadow

A nice urban mini meadow has sprung up at the entrance to Jätkäsaari district in Helsinki. There is surprisingly rich flora growing in the barren soil between the sidewalk and a bike path. It’s really nice to see at least a glimpse of wild nature in the concrete jungle of Jätkäsaari. Hopefully the city will let the mini meadow flourish.

New neighborhoods of Helsinki, Part II – Jätkäsaari

We visited Jätkäsaari to see how the recently vacated cargo port of Helsinki turns into a neighborhood for 17 000 residents and 6 000 jobs. The construction will go on until 2025, but already Jätkäsaari was well on the way.

New neighborhoods of Helsinki, Part I – Kalasatama

We made a quick visit to Kalasatama to see how the construction of a new Helsinki neighborhood is coming along. Under construction until 2030, Kalasatama will eventually be home to approximately 20 000 residents and some 8 000 workspaces. Today only a relatively small cluster of apartment buildings was ready but the trip was really interesting nevertheless.
