Business Kangasala is actively involved in developing and planning the business districts of Lamminrahka and Saarenmaa. We also cooperate with our marketing partner Tarasten Kiertotalousalue Oy. Plots in the Taraste Circular Economy Hub are now available for sale and rent. Plots in Saarenmaa will become available after the land use planning process is completed, in 2025 or 2026. Parts of the Lamminrahka and Saarenmaa areas are allocated to housing and local services for the residents.

The Lamminrahka business district is located along the busy main road 12 (Lahdentie), at the Kangasala-Tampere border. The area can be reached in 15 minutes by car from the city centre of Tampere, and in 5 minutes from the centre of Kangasala. Despite its central location, nature is never far away in this area, which is surrounded by vast forests. There are plots of different sizes, ideal as production and office premises for companies that appreciate a location with excellent logistics, smooth public transport links and existing infrastructure that makes construction easy. The new district has been designed with sustainable development in mind, and it is a functional combination of high-quality housing and the prerequisites of successful business.
