Welcome to the River Valley of Sipoo! The River Valley of Sipoo, a brand new residential area, rises to the east of Nikkilä, the centre of Sipoo. The new residential area is named after its location in the valley of the Sipoo River.
Nikkilä, Sipoo’s largest regional population centre and the hub of municipal and educational services, is within easy reach of the larger cities of Helsinki, Porvoo and Kerava. The Kerava to Porvoo regional road and the connecting road to Helsinki offer good and swift connections to Helsinki, Porvoo and Kerava located at a distance of 30 km, 25 km and 10 km, respectively.
The new residential area is connected to the Nikkilä Centre via Nikkiläntie that runs through the area, and Uudensillantie (Kuninkaantie) to the south and Laaksosuontie extension to the north of the area. The distance from the River Valley of Sipoo residential area to Nikkilä Centre—where Iso Kylätie and Nikkiläntie intersect—is approximately half a kilometre.
Together, the Nikkilä Centre and the River Valley of Sipoo residential area create an attractive and comfortable yet unique and original living environment providing townhouses and commercial and municipal services to the area’s estimated 1,000 inhabitants.
Our objective is to create an environment which encourages inhabitants to move about on foot, by bicycle, and by using the public transportation network while offering safe and inspirational surroundings for a mixed-age population. The development plans include the land area along the Sipoo River, which will be included in the Nikkilä parks network. Eco efficiency has been the leading principle in the design of structural and functional solutions that enhance the development of a community spirit and local identity.
Along the central road, Jokilaaksontie, there will be a mix of residential and commercial buildings. The land area along the Sipoo River will be turned into a versatile park and recreational outdoor area complementing the current park network.
The heart of the River Valley of Sipoo will be around the roundabout where Nikkiläntie and the new collecting road intersect and the market square located at the end of the park surrounding the administrative building of the former hospital area. Residential and commercial buildings will be located along the perimeter of the market square.
