Telakkaranta – plans to revitalize an old shipyard from the 19th century
Close to Jätkäsaari, an old shipyard area is – according to plans - to be revitalized and turned into a living room for the citizens. The winning entry of a competition organized for the future of Telakkaranta, entitled Living Harbor, has now been developed further, and a street plan has been drafted for the area.
The plans for the area include a seafront promenade with cafés, restaurants and historic docked ships. Most of the buildings in the area are old red-brick storehouses and newer industrial halls that will be converted into offices, shops and cultural venues. In addition, new apartment and office blocks have been planned. Telakkaranta will be linked to the shoreline walking paths that circle the heart of Helsinki.
