The Tower Area Competition was launched with an open call for entries 24.1.2017. Participation is open for those who meet the financial, technical and qualitative criteria set by the organizers.

The second phase of Competition was launched in autumn 2017.


Plan proposals for the second phase were submitted for assessment in May 2018.

Competition award decision and approval of the development agreement will be made in autumn 2018.


The signing of development agreement on the Start-Up Area will take place in early 2019.


The detailed city plan is meant to have legal force in 2020, which means that the building permit of the first object in the Start-Up Area would be acknowledged and the relevant property transaction made in 2020–2021. The objective is that building of the first object in the Start-Up Area will begin at latest in 2021.
