By 2030, the Viinikanlahti area will have been redeveloped and incorporated into the Tampere city centre. The area currently houses a wastewater treatment plant, which will be relocated. The planning of the new residential area and green areas will commence during 2019 with surveys, the ideas competition and the first phases of local detailed planning.
The open international urban ideas competition was launched in May 2019, and the winner will be announced in the spring of 2020. The competition programme was published and the competition website opened on 15 May 2019.
