Saippua Center is located near to the center of Turku in the Iso-Heikkilä, future Kirstinpuisto area. The area is an old industrial area that has been re-zoned. Re-zoned building plan allows i.a. residential construction.
Saippua Center property had several buildings that had reached the end of their technical lifetime. The re-zoning enabled a new type of use for the building plan and in 2020 total 6,487m2 of the Saippua Center property (with an area of 18,685m2) was sold. Residential apartment buildings will be built on the sold property; this supports the development trend of the area and the need for residential buildings in the downtown area.
The remaining property consists mainly of protected buildings. The remaining buildings will be developed and modernized in the future. The buildings have business premises which are suitable for office use, production premises, storage use, and hobby activities (dance halls, gyms, etc.). The Saippua Center will be an important part of Kirstinpuisto’s service offering. Saippua Center offers business premises in a great location, in the immediate vicinity of services and with good transport connections.
