Haaga is a cosy, garden-like district around several key rail links. The future Western Boulevard City district starts in Haaga around the roundabout and ends in Kaupintie.

Haaga as an area

Plans for the coming years will bring new housing and services to different parts of Haaga, most notably the future Western Boulevard City district. Up to 1,800 new residents are targeted for the district by 2030.

Thanks to its central location and excellent transport links, the emerging Haaga offers great business opportunities. The zoning changes will enable the construction of commercial and office premises, for example near the Haaga roundabout. For more information on business opportunities in the city of Helsinki see the “For companies” page.

Construction

Apartments for 600 new residents will be built near Huopalahti station, on Orapihlajantie and Paatsamantie.
With the relocation of activity at the Stenius field to the Haaganpuisto area, housing for 350 new residents has been planned for the field.

Close

Sheltered housing for the elderly and a senior centre offering outpatient services are being planned around Hopeatie. In addition, the new zoning plan allows for the construction of new apartment blocks to replace dilapidated nursing homes and residential buildings. The number of residents in apartment buildings will increase by about 200, and the number of places in sheltered and special housing by about 300, compared to the current situation.

New traffic arrangements to replace the Haaga roundabout and new block areas around them are being planned for the first phase. The location of a new social and health care services unit In the area is being studied. A street plan will be drawn up for part of Vihdintie and Hupalahdentie, and the plot and street connection will be allocated for the new substation.
Residential blocks, services, streets, parks and recreational facilities are planned for Länsi-Haaga. Commercial space will be allocated along the boulevard, especially around the express tramway stop. A day care centre will be located next to the park. The local detailed planning process started in 2021.
A high-quality public transport interchange is planned for the Valimo station area. In the future, the area will become a diverse centre for living and leisure, in addition to providing jobs and commercial space. The most intensively built blocks in the Vihdintie Boulevard City are located around Valimo station.

Plans

Local detailed plans determine the land use of an area, where we build housing, offices, parks, streets and other roads, for example.

Traffic connections

In the future, the express tramway will run from Helsinki city centre via Munkkiniemi, Haaga and Lassila to Kannelmäki. Along the route, you can change to, for example, the Jokeri Light Rail at Haaga roundabout or the commuter trains at Valimo and Pohjois-Hague stations.
Huopalahdentie and Vihdintie will become urban boulevards. They are good for walking or cycling, and there are two lanes for cars in each direction. A new high-quality cycle lane will connect the area to Huopalahti station.
In 2024, the Jokeri Light Rail will start operating, running through the Haaga roundabout. Jokeri Light Rail will improve cross-traffic from Keilaniemi in Espoo to Itäkeskus in Helsinki, and will also serve the residents of the Western Boulevard City district.
