Otaniemi as an operational environment
Central location & tight cooperation.
In the near future, Otaniemi will develop into a small city that combines various functions and user groups. The growth and transformation of Otaniemi are based on user-oriented operations and cooperation between the university, officials, politicians, and companies. Our objective is an Otaniemi lifestyle, a versatile and interactive environment for research, arts, and free-time services.
Otaniemi offers direct connection to the centre of Helsinki – also by metro in 2016 – and a fast connection to the airport. Otaniemi is conveniently located to provide for companies operating on local and international markets, making operations there very effective. Keilaniemi and North Tapiola near Otaniemi host plenty of the leading companies of all sizes and various fields.
Otaniemi is an area of great interest. It is part of the development area that involves impressive projects in the planning and under construction, such as the westbound extension of the Helsinki metro line and related construction of the Otaniemi station and the universities’ square as well as the covering of Ringway I from Otaniemi to Tapiola. This triangle area is also the heart of Espoo Innovation Garden.
Otaniemi combines work, living, and services in a unique, clean and natural environment.
