Developing the trackside in Lahti Region

The trackside area makes a great object of investments in both the Growth Agreement and in INKA (Innovative Cities) Programme for Lahti Region. The trackside between Henna in Nastola, Hennala in Lahti, Villähde in Nastola and Uusikylä forms a ribbon-shaped area where housing, entrepreneurship, transport and building are developed. MDI carried out two intensive workshops on the topic of developing the trackside area giving a starting shot to the drafting of a roadmap to the future. MDI executed the work in cooperation with Ari Hynynen, Professor at the School of Architecture at Tampere University of Technology and Jari Kolehmainen, Head of Research at the School of Management at University of Tampere.
