Real Estate Annual Finland 2007

For Nordicum 6 2006 we interviewed Helsinki’s Lord Mayor Jussi Paajanen. He says that Helsinki is aiming to maintain and develop its position as one of the most innovative and competitive metropolises in Europe. We also introduce Stockholm’s city centre property development projects. In our business and incentive travel section we take a look at Finnish Lapland, which is getting more and more international travel destination. Lapland’s ski resorts and other travel operators have started several large investment programmes. Nordicum 6/2006 includes real estate & architecture special report. We introduce for example airport city Aviapolis, which is one of the most dynamic developments in the whole Helsinki region. Helsinki’s neighbour city Espoo will get a metro line. This also means that Finland’s leading innovation and technology cluster of Keilaniemi-Otaniemi-Tapiola will have more effective traffic connections to the Helsinki city centre.
