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. The answers concerning the competition task, the developed Weup aerial map and additional background information were published on 19 June 2019.

The first phase of the competition ended on 27 September 2019. By the set deadline, a total of 57 entries were submitted to the competition under a pseudonym. Entries submitted in the first phase of the competition can be viewed through the link below and on the competition website starting on 9 October 2019.

The jury will publish the competition programme for the second phase and a maximum of six competition entries, submitted under a pseudonym, that will continue in the competition on 15 November 2019. The winner of the competition and other prize-winning entries with related author details will be announced in April 2020. After this, the local detailed planning and other planning of the area will be continued based on the results of the competition. At this point, also the citizens can express their views and ideas.
