Iso Omena has been a huge success
We completed a major expansion project for the Iso Omena shopping centre in spring 2017. After its expansion, Iso Omena has been a huge success, achieving numerous awards and more satisfied customers and tenants.
In the development project, the gross leasable area of Iso Omena increased to more than 100,000 square meters. The project brought many new shops and services to the centre, including the restaurant world M.E.E.T (Meet, Eat, Enjoy, Together) boasting an impressive selection of high-quality food, the Service Centre of the City of Espoo (6,000 sqm) and a cinema. With more than 200 different shops and services, Iso Omena is among Finland’s largest shopping centres.
The Iso Omena shopping centre has been awarded a LEED® Platinum certificate for its extension, the highest rating level within the environmental certification system.
