Swedish construction company NCC announced its plans to start building the new office concept, We Land, in the Ruoholahti district of Helsinki, Finland this month.

Ruoholahti business district includes nearly 20% of Helsinki’s head offices and approximately 19,000 people work.

To be built near Jätkäsaari area and the city’s international West Harbour Länsisatama, the We Land concept will have 14 floors above ground and three floors below.

The new office building will comprise 18,000m2 of office space, 1,700m2 for catering services, 190 parking spaces (all with charging facilities) and 450 bike parking spaces.

The construction company said that the project is designed to meet BREEAM rating of Outstanding.

It also said that the construction of the new building was planned in collaboration with the City of Helsinki, the architect firm JKMM Architects and companies and tenants in the area.

Deloitte is said to be one of the future tenants of We Land and it has planned to relocate its Finnish headquarters to the area upon its completion in 2023.

NCC has confirmed that the letting ratio of the new office building is currently at 29%.

Additionally, We Land is scheduled to be registered in the Building Nordics business area in the fourth quarter of this year.

NCC Property Development Finland head Petri Bergström said: “We want to upgrade the Ruoholahti district and make it into one of Helsinki’s most attractive areas.

“We are pleased to be able to start construction of this modern and sustainable office building.”
