The newest operator moving into Tripla’s Workery offices in Helsinki, Finland, is HOK-Elanto, the biggest regional cooperative of the S Group. The new lease agreement brings the occupancy rate of Tripla’s office spaces up to about 80 percent. 

HOK-Elanto is concentrating services and operations in the Tripla complex being built in Pasila, Helsinki. In the shopping centre called Mall of Tripla, HOK-Elanto will have stores of Prisma, Alepa and Emotion as well as three new restaurant concepts. In addition, S Group will open a new hotel in Tripla.  

After its completion, Tripla will be the new northern heart of Helsinki. We will have versatile commercial activities in Tripla so it is logical to relocate the group control and support services nearby. Tripla has also an excellent location and accessibility which is important to HOK-Elanto because our geographical business area covers nine municipalities in Uusimaa region,” HOK-Elanto’s Property Director Jyrki Karjalainen explains. 

HOK-Elanto will be located in Workery West, an office tower in the middle of the Tripla complex.  

We are very happy that HOK-Elanto has decided to relocate to Tripla. Interest in the new Pasila and the services that Tripla will provide keeps growing as the construction project progresses,” Tuula Klemetti, Director responsible for the project development and leasing of Workery premises at YIT, says. 

Tripla’s Workery, expected to be completed in early 2020, will boast office spaces for approximately 5,000 people.  

Tripla’s Workery premises, which have been designed by YIT and are currently under construction, were sold by YIT to the German real estate investment company Commerz Real AG in December 2018. The leasable area of the premises is approximately 50,000 square metres in total. The new contract with HOK-Elanto brings the occupancy rate of Tripla’s office spaces up to about 80 percent. 

Tripla’s Workery offices are constructed according to the standards of the LEED Platinum certificate.
