The wider Kotka-Hamina region is one of the largest sea ports in Finland and Kotka itself has a proud marine history. Kotkamills, a significant producer of timber and paper products, operates a large factory at the northern end of the city. Modern methods of production have resulted in the factory needing a smaller footprint, resulting in the old port area adjacent becoming available for redevelopment.
A masterplan for the site has been completed by AHR for the remaining 22 hectares. This includes a 2 phase retail outlet mall, 2 hotels, an entertainment complex, new residential buildings, new public squares with pedestrian and cycle routes, a marina, a bus terminus and all ancillary functions that are needed to create a vibrant 24 hour usable environment.
