Keilaniemi station

Keilaniemi station will be located on the narrow strip between Karhusaarentie and Keilaniementie next to Fortum's head office. There will be two separate entrance buildings at the metro station; a southern building with the main entrance, and a northern building that will be located close to the curve in Keilaniementie. Commercial space will be constructed in connection with the northern entrance.

The ticket hall will be located on an underground floor from which the platform can be accessed by lifts and escalators. The platform will be located approximately 20 metres below ground level.

The importance of Keilaniemi as a divider is emphasised in architectural planning: the area functions as a divider between work and housing, the sea and the land, and the vicinity of a boundary between two cities.

The station is being designed by ALA Oy + Esa Piironen Oy.
