Office buildings in the Vapaudenaukio Plaza (14.000 m2) and Armilanlinna (3000 m2) and the Wilhunkulma commercial property provide first-rate facilities for more than 70 companies, right in the heart of Lappeenranta. The facilities in Vapaudenaukio include flexible office spaces equipped with modern features for meeting the needs of an individual business owner or a company that has more than 200 employees. The office building in Vapaudenaukio is the first building in Lappeenranta to receive the Gold rating level of the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for buildings. The certification criteria include the reduction of energy consumption, efficient use of water, reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, improving the quality of indoor air, and the location of the building. Special attention has been paid at the Vapaudenaukio property on the management of indoor conditions, solar energy and supporting commuting to work by bike.
Armilanlinna, which is an architecturally and historically valuable school building, was renovated in 2019 to offer various business premises. When developing this property, we carefully respected the architectural spirit of this fine example of functionalism, which is full of history, without compromising on the convenience of modern technology.
Wilhunkulma commercial property locates right next to the city hall and the pedestrian zone and honouring the respected historical surroundings was important guideline when designing the property. The goal was to create a new landmark building that honours the existing city scape. Wilhunkulma was selected as Lappeenranta’s most beautiful building in 2011. Wilhunkulma offers premises for restaurants, coffee shops, retail stores and service companies.
For industrial operations, we have space and lots at the industry hub in Muukonkangas, next to main road 6.
