As. Oy Rovaniemen Taiga - Affordable and Innovative Living in the Heart of the City

Secretly dreaming of a modern and well-designed apartment in the center of Rovaniemi? As. Oy Rovaniemen Taiga completes our new, handsome development in the very heart of the Lappish capital. Stepping out of this 6-storey, 95-apartment newbuild, you will find yourself standing in the middle of the thriving cultural scene of this urban city full of science and art, with all amenities and services very nearby. You will make a home in the urban landscape framed by the Toripuistikko park, the inviting riverside parks of rivers Ounas and Kemi, and of course the ‘flames’ of the iconic Jätkänkynttilä bridge. If you feel like exploring a bit further, grab your phone and open the app to book one of the shared cars parked in the block – no need to own your own. Rovaniemi at its best!

Living with Style, the City at your Doorstep

The location of As. Oy Rovaniemen Taiga is superbly central. Korkalonkatu is just 200 metres from the buzzing shopping centres, cafes and restaurants of Koskikatu. The Jätkänkynttilä bridge is 300 metres away and Lordi Square just 200 metres from home. All services are nearby: the Central Market Square (Kauppatori), bus station, train station, cinema, library, swimming hall, theatre, and a public medical centre to name a few. Within walking distance you can also find the popular Korundi culture house and the science centre Arktikum. And if you are a RoPS fan, you’ll be pleased to know that their home home stadium is also situated on your turf!

Modern city homes

As. Oy Rovaniemen Taiga consists of 24 lovely studios and 71 one-bed apartments, each with plenty of natural light. The sizes of the studios range from 22,5 to 34,5m2 and the 1-bed apartments from 35,5 to 49m m2. The apartments are arranged around well equipped kitchen units, floor to ceiling windows and smartly furnished bathrooms. Each apartment has either large doors to a French balcony, a glass-walled corner balcony or a swanky roof terrace. The bedrooms of the larger apartments are separated from the living rooms with beautiful floor to ceiling sliding doors.

Functional features

An interesting feature of the Taiga architectural design is a smallish but athmospheric city courtyard complete with a seating area. In accordance with traditional Finnish urban style, the modern buildings surrounding the courtyard are cheerfully more multi-dimensional on the courtyard side than on the street side. The residents’ cars and the shared cars of the block can conveniently be parked in a semi-warm parking garage under the buildings. Electric cars are also easy to recharge there. To end your evening exercise outing in a relaxing way, you can book one of the two saunas Taiga offers to its residents. Each apartment has a designated storage space in the basement of the building for extra convenience.

Versatile leisure activities near you

As a resident of As. Oy Rovaniemen Taiga, you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to inspiring leisure opportunities. Feel like catching that new film everyone’s talking about? Attending a concert or another cultural offering at Korundi? An exhibition, a lecture or an event at Arktikum? Or do you prefer to recharge your own batteries enjoying the great ourdoors? There’s no need to leave the city for this either. The Jyrhämä lean-to (laavu/shelter) invites nature lovers to enjoy views, walks and skiing trips on the ice! In the summer, why not move your home office and social gatherings into the lovely, vasts parks by the river? Or call a friend for a hike up Ounasvaara for gorgeous views and panoramic photos?

As. Oy Rovaniemen Taiga is a stylish creation of the award-winning LUO Arkkitehdit architectural agency. It boasts a distinct urban look, with a snow-white façade towards the city, and red brick-clad walls on the courtyard side. The icing on the cake are the top floor apartments, with large terraces for enjoying fabulous views of the Northern Lights and the white nights of Rovaniemi. Some Taiga units even offer views of the river Ounas.

You can also get around in your own car, or use an app to book one of the affordable and easy to rent shared cars reserved to the residents of the block. The E4 takes you quickly to Oulu, Jyväskylä or even all the way south to Helsinki. The large ski resorts of Iso-Syöte, Levi, Ylläs and Ruka are all just a couple hours’s drive away, and the Rovaniemi airport just 10 minutes out. The flight to Helsinki lands there just an hour and a few minutes after take-off.

The shopping centre Sampo-keskus with its cinema is just 250 metres away, and the Rinteenkulma shops just 100 metres further. Restaurants and cafes tempt you with their tasty offerings all around.

Near the Great Outdoors

In Rovaniemi you barely have to step out of of your centrally located apartment to start enjoying some amazing experiences in the great outdoors! The Kemi river flows just 300 metres from Taiga, and on the other side you’ll find the gorgeous jogging trails of Ounasvaara. A traditional Lappish lean-to awaits just 1,3 km away, so why not grab your skis and head out on the river on a nice winter day? And let’s not forget the beautiful, sprawling riverside parks made for summer picnics with friends!

A Great Return for Your Investment

As. Oy Rovaniemen Taiga provides interesting options for investors as well as those looking for a home for themselves. The 8 000 university level students in the city keep the long-term rental demand high, especially considering most older Rovaniemi apartments are still quite large and harder to rent out.

Oy Rovaniemen Taiga is a great example of a sought-after central development with a very competitive price tag – a superb opportunity not to miss.

Quality Nordic Architecture and Functional Apartment Design

The architects at the Oulu-based LUO Arkkitehdit designed As. Oy Rovaniemen Taiga to fit in beautifully into the Rovaniemi cityscape. The white rough red brick of the courtyard walls provide a warm contrast to the smooth white façade on the street side. The Taiga apartments are designed stylish, light, and functional all the way down to the smallest detail. The building’s top floors offer alluring penthouses with gorgeous views over the city. Certain Taiga apartments offer views all the way to the river Kemi.
