The construction of the “small town” of Vuores in the southern part of
Tampere has begun. The district already inhabits approximately 20
families, and many houses are under construction. Regular bus service is
already in operation between the town centre and Vuores.
The first block of flats will be completed in autumn 2011. The Finnish
Housing Fair in 2012 will be held in Vuores.
The Vuores Day will be held on Sunday the 22nd of August at 11 am to 3 pm. The event will introduce, for example, projects of the construction companies, plans concerning the area and the execution of the Housing Fair in 2012. During the event, you can manifest your interest in acquiring an apartment from one of the block of flats under
construction. Plots for private houses can be applied for again next year.
The Vuores Day − a family event − will be held on 22nd of August and it will be hosted by Simo Frangén. Other performers are the Moomin dance group and the actress/singer Irina Björklund. Björklund will play music with a saw, among other instruments. The inhabitants and prospective inhabitants of the area will build the founding block dedicated to the inhabitants.
The event offers a great variety of programme: coffee cooked on open fire, a nature walk for
children and a guided mushroom picking tour.
There is a free bus connection to Vuores departing from the Tampere Central Square every hour starting from 10.30 am. The bus returns to the Central Square every hour on the hour. Free bus service circulates
in the Vuores area, but there is also a lot of parking space for cars.
A school centre, a nursery and several shops are being built in Vuores alongside with the construction of houses and apartments. The new Särkijärvi bridge opening next year will speed up the journey to the town centre (10 to 20 minutes). Vuores resides in the middle of nature, the buildings in the area are particularly energy efficient and the waste collection is executed through a special suction method.
All the apartments will be equipped with a 100 Mb internet connection. Housing for over 13,000 inhabitants and offices that employ 3,000 to 5,000 people will be constructed in Vuores.
