The eight store office building will be built at a central location in the Telakkaranta area in Helsinki. The area is one of the very last old industrial sites in downtown Helsinki and the project will include elements of the history of the site. A listed building, an old red-brick woodwork shop, will be part of the new building. Also, an old foundry building located next to the ECHA building will be entirely renovated into a conference and events center. The entire area will be transformed in to a modern hub that will also include residential and other premises. 

In total the EHCA building complex will comprise about 17,500 square meters of leasable space. Work has already started, and construction of the new premises is expected to be completed in the end of 2019.
