Plans are underway for the construction of the Horisontti skyscraper in Kalasatama, Helsinki, Finland. Reportedly, Finnish construction contractor SRV has negotiated with property investment company Niam to build the first-of-its-kind office skyscraper.
Speaking on the project, SRV CEO and President Saku Sipola said: “It’s great to be able to start up the construction of this project with Niam. This has happened after a protracted period of joint development. The recent launch of Horisontti demonstrates that even in the current market environment, there is a need for a novel tower construction concept in the commercial real estate market.
Antti Muilu, country manager for Niam, added: “We are delighted to acquire Kalasataman Horisontti. Together with SRV, we will support the transition to more environmentally friendly building development. This is in addition to sustainable property ownership.”
An overview of the Horisontti skyscraper in Kalasatama
The 26-story structure will reach 111 meters in height surpassing all other office buildings in the nation in height.
It will have 11,500m2 of rentable office space on floors five to 26. The office work will begin in April and is predicted to be done in the second quarter of 2025. Once finished, SRV will relocate its offices from the greater Helsinki area to Horisontti.
Horisontti skyscraper in Kalasatama will also have a restaurant on the 24th floor that is said will be the highest in the greater Helsinki area. The restaurant is about to start the tendering process.
The development aims to secure an international LEED Platinum environmental certification. It is worth noting that Niam and SRV will construct a magnificent landmark structure through this project. They will therefore satisfy users’ functional and qualitative needs both now and in the future. The project’s location will further provide tenants and guests with a distinctive experience and a reason to visit the business.
