Technopolis Continues to Expand Aviapolis Campus – Strong Demand for Flexible and Modern Workspaces in Vantaa
Technopolis will expand its Aviapolis campus in Vantaa due to strong customer demand. The EUR 15.1 million project will be launched in June 2017 and is due for completion in November 2018.
“Our previous extension was completed in 2015 and it has had full occupancy ever since. At the end of March, the occupancy of our Vantaa campus was 95%. The location is one of the best in the capital region, near the Ring Rail train station and the airport, in the middle of the rapidly developing Aviapolis area,” says Technopolis Helsinki Metropolitan Area Director Jukka Vakula.
”We want to offer flexibility and growth opportunities for both our existing and new customers in Technopolis Aviapolis. It is important for us to develop our campus so that it continues to provide a world-class shared workspace environment. Our customers can move seamlessly between coworking and private office solutions, with access to high-quality services and a dynamic community of like-minded people,” says Vakula.
Aviapolis has evolved into one of the most dynamic knowledge-intensive ecosystems in Finland. “The Technopolis campus forms communities and increases the interaction between companies. This enhances innovations that boost the vitality of the area even further,” says José Valanta, Director of Business Development at City of Vantaa.
The extension will bring an additional 5,000 m² in rentable space and it will grow the campus to around 30,000 m². After this project, Technopolis can still expand the campus by another 25,000 m². The stabilized yield of the new expansion is expected to be 8%.
