Nordic real estate owner and fund manager Areim is bringing the entire Aallonharja complex in Otaniemi back to life. The office spaces and connected services will support communality, specialist work and well-being among occupants.
”An office has to be appealing, employee-oriented and geared towards facilitating teamwork and joint efforts. More over the property owner must provide a service package that supports a healthy work culture. This philosophy serves as the basis for Areim’s efforts to renovate the Aallonharja complex situated in Otaniemi”, says Hannu Tammia, asset manager at Areim in Finland.
Aallonharja is one of Areim’s Metropolitan Area properties that is to be renovated while respecting the history of the building. The investments, valued at several millions of euros, will update the premises to meet the requirements set for head offices. One of the notable tenants to be moving to Tekniikantie 4 is Etteplan Oyj.
The yard area of Aallonharja will be spruced up with garden plots, which will be accessible by the tenants for breaks and activities. A gardener will be assigned to care for the plots and other green areas designed by landscape designer Eva Wuite. The employees in the building will have access to shared bicycles.
The focus is on sustainable development. Areim´s sustainability goals are that by 2023, the energy consumption in Areim´s properties will on average be no more than 100 kWh/square meter. We also aim to certify 100% of our properties and become completely climate neutral by 2030.
