Kojamo plc Media release 26 June 2024 at 1:00 p.m.

At the location of Puotila’s old shopping centre, 113 Lumo homes will be completed – “These are the newest of the new in one of Helsinki’s oldest residential areas”

As a residential area, Puotila attracts residents who value both nature and the proximity to services. From the Klaavuntie Lumo building, everything you need for everyday life is within walking distance.

At the location of the old Puotila shopping centre, which was demolished in 2022, 113 new Lumo rental apartments will be completed by the end of June 2024 at Klaavuntie 11, Helsinki. 

However, the range of services offered by the old shopping centre will not disappear forever with the construction of the new building. During the summer, six new business premises will be built on the street level of Klaavuntie 11 and will be occupied by familiar operators from the old shopping centre: a grocery store, a kiosk and several restaurants.  

"The residents of the area have been waiting for the building to be completed ever since the old shopping centre reached the end of its life cycle and was demolished. It is a pleasure to announce that both the new residents of the building and other residents in Puotila will soon be able to enjoy the result," says Laura Koiranen, Sales Director for Lumo Homes.

The building, which is eight storeys tall at its highest, offers apartments for a variety of different needs: studios, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments with three different interior design styles. All in a central location, with nature, comprehensive services and good transport links nearby.

Klaavuntie is about a five-minute walk from Puotila metro station. The metro takes less than half an hour to get to the centre of Helsinki. If you need to do some more extensive shopping but you don't want to travel all the way to the city centre, Itis Shopping Centre is just a fifteen-minute walk away, or five minutes by bike.

A short walk will get you to several day care centres, a primary and lower secondary school, as well as various parks and other outdoor areas, such as Puotila beach and an allotment garden.

"Our Klaavuntie building respects the village-like character of Puotila. This is a place for everyone: people living alone and together, families with children, pensioners, those who have lived in the area for a longer time and those looking for a new residential area," says Koiranen. 

The Klaavuntie Lumo building offers diverse and comfortable communal spaces that support community living. In addition to various storage spaces, the seventh floor of the building has a club room, a large terrace, two saunas and a laundry room. The sheltered courtyard is a safe place to spend time, especially for families with young children.

"These are the newest of the new in one of Helsinki's oldest residential areas, and Puotila is becoming one of the most sought-after residential areas in eastern Helsinki. There are still a couple Lumo homes available," says Koiranen.

"The plan is to organise a joint housewarming party for the building's residents at the beginning of the autumn. After all the residents have had the chance to settle in."
