REDI (‘roadstead’ in English) is a nautical term for partly-sheltered anchorage outside a harbour.
REDI will consist of a shopping centre and eight residential towers. At 131.7 metres, the highest will be Finland’s tallest residential building.
REDI is located in the Kalasatama district of Helsinki, at the intersection of three busy main roads. 500,000 people live within a fifteen-minute drive, and no less than 1.1 million within a 30-minute drive.
REDI is easy to reach by car, metro, bus, tram and bike, and even on foot. REDI offers plenty of parking: for 2,000 cars and 3,000 bikes.
When it opens in 2018, REDI will be Helsinki’s largest downtown shopping and experience centre. The underground parking facilities and first residential tower will also be completed then.
REDI is expecting an estimated 12 million visitors in its first year.
The REDI shopping centre has over 60,000 m2 of leasable space. With almost 200 commercial premises to choose from, companies are sure to find a suitable alternative.
The REDI shopping centre is accessible from both street level and the underground multi-storey car park. The metro will also stop on the third floor about 500 times a day.
REDI will have a long, covered pedestrian street lined with cafés, restaurants and stores.
REDI will be home to about 2,000 people. They’ll be able to access the shopping centre directly from their homes, via elevators. The Kalasatama district as a whole will provide homes for 20,000 people.
REDI‘s residential towers have been designed according to the international model: a concierge service will make residents’ daily lives a little easier. The towers also have gyms, numerous upscale public spaces, and saunas and function rooms at a height of 130 metres.
REDI is also close to nature. Isoisä Bridge connects Kalasatama to Korkeasaari Zoo and the Mustikkamaa outdoor recreation area.
