The Konepaja Train Factory project – a project under development by Sawyer Group and partners in the center of Helsinki.
The Konepaja Train Factory, known in Finnish as Pasilan Konepaja, is a complex of three industrial buildings, two of which are listed historical buildings, located in the central part of Helsinki.
As an industrial estate, Train Factory is a uniquely beautiful expression of its era and a Helsinki landmark — one of the most famous industrial buildings in Finland.
The Factory consists of three buildings:
The Assembly Hall (13,154m2) ;
– The Paint Shop (6,208m2); and
– The Electric Train Hall (6,892m2).
The aim of the project is to redevelop the Assembly Hall and the Paint Shop into a forward-looking creative retail and office/craftsmanship/light industrial center, street food market, and events platform with a mix of uses which reinforce each other to make the factory into an intense center of creative and community life with footfall of several million annually. The Train Factory will become a place that brings people together in an atmosphere of creativity and fun. A place that combines workspaces with sports, theatre, music, unique events, inspiring food and drink, a place that is bubbling with ideas and life in the day and at night.
