“We were looking for premises that meet the changing needs of modern publishing operations and working life. The good location and the personal interaction that the convertible spaces allow are what drew us to Lönnrotinkatu,” says Bonnier Books Finland’s CEO, Timo Julkunen.
 
The functionalist building, which was completed in 1939, was renovated from top to bottom.
 
“Lönnrotinkatu 18 is a good example of a successful real estate development project. The renovation made use of the building’s old structures, while still emphasising the convertibility and usability of the spaces – the end result is modern office premises,” says Benjamin Kalliola, Real Estate Developer at Varma.
 
Other tenants of Lönnrotinkatu 18 include the winner of Masterchef Finland Miro Kurvinen’s new restaurant Kungfu Kitchen, Detur Finland Oy and MaaS Finland Oy. Nearly all the spaces in the building have been leased, and negotiations on the remaining vacant spaces are currently under way.
