Area by the sea, close to nature
Aurinkolahti is located by the sea in Helsinki, southeast from the centre of Vuosaari. The area and the bay were originally called Mustalahti. Kahvikortteli is being built in Aurinkolahti in the area of the former Paulig coffee roastery, which is still present in the names of streets and housing companies in the area.
Kahvikortteli is between the sea and the metro line
The upsides of Aurinkolahti – the sea and the metro – are located within walking distance of Kahvikortteli. You can walk to the local metro station in just a few minutes. The metro trip to the centre of Helsinki takes 20 minutes, with trains running eight times an hour during peak hours.
Helsinki's longest sand beach, running over 500 metres, is located only 400 metres from Kahvikortteli. There are restaurants and cafeterias close to the beach. A skating rink is ploughed on the beach by volunteers in the wintertime. Aurinkolahti is also enhanced by a canal running north-south, completed in 2008. Its total length is 700 metres and width 12–45 metres. Several bridges span the canal. Kampela, the base of the Vuosaaren Urheilukalastajat fishing club with a marina for 320 boats and facilities for smoking fish and clearing nets for members, is located at the mouth of the canal.
An outdoor enthusiast's paradise
Kallahdenharju, the Mustavuori grove and Rastilan Neva are some of the 12 nature conservation areas in Vuosaari located within walking or cycling distance. Shore views surrounded by glaciated rocks, shore meadows and common alders, and good skiing routes are found in the nearby Uutela recreational area. The Skatta heritage landscape is also nearby.
An 18-hole golf course is slightly over a kilometre away, a swimming hall with jumping towers and water slides just 500 metres away. Half a kilometre from the property, Vuotalo Cultural Centre offers a variety of experiences for culture enthusiasts, housing the City Library, Adult Education Centre and the City Cultural Office. There are some sixty shops and restaurants in the Columbus shopping centre next to the metro station. A healthcare centre is just around the corner, and there are also several day-care centres and schools in the area.
Residential construction in Kahvikortteli
We have built several developments in Kahvikortteli, and the construction continues for a few more years. Some of the apartments are owner-occupied and some are rented. The new apartments of Kahvikortteli offer comfortable, care-free living by the shoreline of Helsinki, more affordable than in the city centre.
