The plans include nine residential blocks, two parking garages, a school, and two daycare centres. Pre-construction and street construction is scheduled to begin in the area’s southern sections in summer 2024, and the first residential buildings will start to go up by 2026.

With the expansion of dwellings to Hermanninranta and later Kyläsaari, the Helsinki City aims to create a continuous sweep of residences from Kalasatama all the way to Arabianranta.
