Wereldhave’s portfolio in Finland consists of the Itis shopping centre in Helsinki. In Finland Wereldhave owns and operates this shopping centre in Helsinki. In 2014 was the completion of the project that brought Itis back to the top of the Helsinki retail market. Itis in snow not only the largest but once again also the leading shopping destination in the Nordics. In 2014, the final phase of the project has been concluded succesfully. The final job of the two-year project was the renovation of the former Stockmann location. This involved 12,000 m2 of prime retail space that was leased to high-end retail brands. The major part of the Itis refurbishment was already completed one year earlier, at the end of 2013. After the construction workers had left and shops had reopened in 2013, visitors found their way back into the centre, increasing footfall by no less than 11% in 2014.
Feedback from our tenants and public has been overwhelmingly positive, and confirms that Itis is on an international level and ahead of its main competitors. In 2015 ITIS was voted best Finnish Shopping Centre, winning the NCSC Finland Awards.
