Niittykumpu will be a modern metro hub – Lidl HQ brings vitality
Espoo is ecologically, economically and socio-culturally sustainable city. The city wants to offer good conditions for a smooth daily life. Niittykumpu is on its way to becoming a 21st century metro traffic hub and home to thousands of new residents.
In a taster of what’s to come, Lidl Finland’s new headquarters moved to Espoo. The new commercial building perfectly meets Lidl’s needs, offering excellent public transport links and a highly flexible layout capable of responding to future growth. With the move, Lidl is in fact making a return to its previous home, having been based across a number of sites in Espoo in the early 2000s before moving to Vantaa.
"Our new headquarters perfectly meets Lidl’s needs with its excellent public transportation connections and flexible space solutions. Our activities have grown and the headquarters fulfills our needs as a growing organization. We are excited to work in our new Lidl House", says Virpi Kaikkonen, Board Member, Development and Property at Lidl Suomi Ky.
Currently, Lidl has a total of 160 stores in Finland, nine of which are located in Espoo. The latest Espoo store is due to open in April at the Iso Omena shopping centre.
“The metro brings along housing, jobs, investments, and services, and the arrival of Lidl Finland’s head office in Niittykumpu is a significant development for the metro growth corridor. We would like to extend our warmest welcome to Lidl and wish them every success in Espoo,” concluded Tuula Antola, Director, Economic and Business Development for the City of Espoo.
