AW2 Architects’ illustration shows how the round carpark closely connects to the planned Royal Center. West Terminal 2 is behind the Centre in the illustration.

The new Royal Park carpark will rise to Helsinki's West Harbour in the beginning of year 2021. It will serve the ship passengers and the customers of the planned sports and event centre.

The carpark will take shape near West Terminal 2 but will also serve the passengers of West Terminal 1. 

The new Royal Park carpark will be the first part of Royal Center. The carpark is developed by Royal Areena Oy and Erikoissijoitusrahasto eQ Liikekiinteistöt. The building has been commissioned by Kiinteistö Oy Helsingin Jätkäsaaren Satamapysäköinti c/o Erikoissijoitusrahasto eQ Liikekiinteistöt and will be constructed by YIT Finland Ltd. 

The construction starts immediately and will be completed in the beginning of 2021.

Port of Helsinki Ltd leases the building and will be responsible for the maintenance and operation of the carpark.

The objectives of the planning and implementation are user-friendliness and clarity above all.  Designed by AW2 Architects, the circular carpark’s façade will be made of glass and aluminium. It will include approximately 730 car parking spaces, electric vehicle charging points and bicycle parking spaces as well as a lobby area. 

– Modern parking services are an important part of smooth travel. The Port of Helsinki wants to improve the passenger experience and facilitate the advance reservation of parking spaces, the parking itself and paying for it, says Sari Nevanlinna, VP of passenger services for the Port of Helsinki.
