Central Pasila Tower Area design competition excellent step for urban development

The joint proposal of SATO, Skanska and ALA Architects has been shortlisted for the second phase in the Helsinki High-Rise architectural competition. With an emphasis on quality, the purpose of the competition is to find a plan and an executor for the Tower Area of Central Pasila, Helsinki. SATO regards the development of Central Pasila as an important response to Helsinki's urbanisation challenges through diverse urban development and variety in housing solutions.

- With this competition, the City of Helsinki has provided us with an excellent opportunity to come up with ideas for a vibrant urban environment in one of the city's most central undeveloped areas, says Vice President Antti Aarnio from SATO. -  We've done plenty of zoning development work with cities before, and of course it's great to be involved in the design of an entirely new residential area with highly competent partners. Our preparation for the second phase of the competition will include the careful further consideration of issues such as construction costs and their impact on the most essential aspect from our customers' perspective - the rent level of the homes.

A total of ten proposals took part in the first phase of the Helsinki High-Rise architectural competition launched at the beginning of 2017 by the Finnish State and the City of Helsinki. The aim was to formulate a high-quality plan for the entire Tower Area of Central Pasila that can serve as a basis for zoning. In the second phase, the four shortlisted competitors will prepare a more detailed plan for at least 40,000 - 65,000 floor square metres located in the western part of the Tower Area.
