To meet the high demand for small apartments, rental apartments are being built in place of a surface carpark, which used to serve a neighbouring office building currently being transformed into student housing (Hoas Hima). The project comprises of two apartment buildings and an adjoining lower carpark building. Located one floor above the metro tracks, the carpark’s roof will provide a shared terrace for residents. The eaves height of one of the apartment buildings follows the existing eaves line of Retkeilijänkatu, while the second building rises three stories higher marking the end of the street and acting as a pair to the tower at the opposite end of Retkeilijänkatu, Viuhka. The amendment to the detailed city plan also included the neighbouring building (Hoas Hima).
