City developments: 

2 industrial harbours: Kalasatama & Jätkasaari.

Smart Kalasatama, is an initiative to improve living quality and communities in Kalasatama.  The overall aim of the project is to give residents one extra hour per day through intelligent management of resources and to open up residential areas to the public, to improve the community. By 2030, Kalasatama will be home to 25 000 people (current population: 3 000) and 10 000 jobs.

Jätkäsaari is being transformed from an industrial harbour into a prime residential area, with distinct and colourful architecture. The Jätkäsaari complex is scheduled to be completed by 2030. It will eventually house 18,000 residents and have business space for 6,000 office workers. In the future, it will be a melting pot of diverse services, independent shops, as well as plentiful, efficient tram routes, bike lanes, and pedestrian walkways.
