Landmark since 1967

City-Center was a general plan designed by Viljo revell in 1958-1960. The plan included the entire block surrounded by Kaivokatu, Keskuskatu and Aleksanterinkatu. The purpose was to create an unified architectural and functional entity. After Revell’s death in 1965, Heikki Castrén continued the design work of City-Center. The plan was executed only at the corner of Kaivokatu and Keskuskatu, where there used to be a building called Skohan house, designed by Theodor Höijer. City-Center used to function as a parking facility, but today it’s a hybrid building with on of Finland’s busiest shopping centre and premium offices with extraordinary views to the city. You’ll definitely recognize today’s Citycenter from the iconic “sausage” that surrounds the building. It’s a landmark that Citycenter has carried with pride since 1967.
