Lielahti factory area converted to Hiedanranta district
The City of Tampere bought a former factory area in Lielahti a few years ago. The area will be renamed Hiedanranta, reintroducing the old name of a cove of Lake Näsijärvi. While the area design is still being launched, it is likely that a new district will be built, possibly complete with extensive residential areas and employment. At the initial stage, the city would like to see the old industrial buildings put to new, temporary use.
