THE HEART OF GROWING HELSINKI – REDI by SRV

REDI, the new landmark of Helsinki, combines shopping, nature, urban culture and modern living in a brand new way. Due to open in the autumn of 2018, The REDI shopping centre arises in the middle of the new Kalasatama neighbourhood where urban city meets the sea. The highest of REDI’s eight upcoming residential tower buildings will soar to 132 meters.

REDI is powered by SRV, a Finnish developer of urban city centres and an innovative provider of end-to-end solutions for construction projects.

#REDIHACK

The aim of #REDIHACK is to discover new digital solutions and operating models that simplify the everyday lives of REDI’s residents and consumers visiting the shopping centre. We are looking for new commercial concepts that service large target groups and can be reproduced also in other shopping and residential centres.
