HELSINKI | Central Pasila | Keski-Pasila

Did a quick search and couldn't find anything about this project, and I just stumbled across these images so I thought I'd post them. Some of them are old, but I haven't seen those pictures this large though. The construction should start when the harbour in Vuosaari is complete. If there's already a thread for this then feel free to move it there.














Skyline from south

The highest one is only 21 floors though
I sent this manipulation to the city planning office, hopefully they'll wise up

"The construction should start when the harbour in Vuosaari is complete."

So when is that going to happen?

Apparently the Vuosaari harbour will begin to function in 2008
But other sources claim the construction in Pasila could begin in the summer of 2007.

So I guess between 2007-2008 would be the close to the right answer.

Small addition, a 14-story building being planned immediately adjacent to the "highrise" area.
(Kudos to the boys at Talo)
I got the height of the red box from one of the other buildings which is being planned as 14 stories as well, might throw off a tad. It's more to show the location anyway.





I just hope there's enough demand for space after all this is complete to justify a 40-floorer or two (maybe even a 50-story one )
(and the political courage to take on the dreaded NIMBY's)
That pointless stump of railway could be transformed in to a mini la-defence

If that's Forum Virium then what's the white looking tower + oval building close to hartwall arena?
Now all that's missing is maybe five 30-40 story buildings, three 40-50 story buildings and one 56 floorer and it wouldn't be an all too shabby skyline.
Yes exactly, in my dreams

Btw, does anyone know why the seemingly pointless stump of railway is being left there? The one next to the Veturitallit. Doesn't seem to vital and could possibly be removed in the future leaving room for real highrises.. .

Looks promising, many new highrises there! Any idea how tall the tallest will be in meters?

The only official numbers, which aren't written in stone yet (that I know of), are in floors.

Forum Virium is estimated to be around 100m
And the highest of the Zucchi buildings is estimated to be around 90m

Looks really promising, though i would add some 50 meters to each tower.

mini update: The plan was postponed so that the construction will not start until 2015, BUT there will now be 10 unique towers about 40-storey each. No new pictures, tho.

Also (some of) the towers will be mixed use with apartments in the top as far as I understood. Excellent news!

Some other updates might be in orders as well, Forum Virium which was mentioned in 2006 won't be 100m tall, in fact it will be closer to 10m. They opted for a regular office building.

Yeah, it does. The problem is that they've put off the start of the construction so many times already, I can't help but wonder if they're ever actually going to start.
