Kesko to build its fifth K-Citymarket hypermarket store in Finland’s fourth biggest city Vantaa

Kesko and the building company SSA Rakennus Oy are set to build a new K-Citymarket hypermarket store in Kivistö, Vantaa. This will be Kesko’s fifth hypermarket in Vantaa, which is the fourth biggest city in Finland and part of the Helsinki metropolitan area. The premises will host the K-Citymarket and some 20 other commercial facilities, as well as integrated housing built by SSA Rakennus.

The new hypermarket will be over 7,000 square metres in size, half of which will be dedicated to food and half to home and speciality goods. The premises will also include over 6,000 square metres of other commercial facilities on three floors. Customer parking will accommodate more than 300 cars and 500 bicycles.

”We are thrilled to be able to strengthen our network of K-Citymarket stores by expanding to the rapidly developing neighbourhood of Kivistö, which also offers excellent traffic connections. We believe that the new K-Citymarket store and other commercial services on the premises will help make Kivistö even more attractive as a neighbourhood and improve the quality of life for those living in the area,” says Mika Sivula, Regional Director for Kesko in Southern Finland.

Land lease agreements for the project were signed with the city of Vantaa on 12 September 2023, and construction can start almost straightaway.

”Our collaboration with the city of Vantaa and SSA Rakennus has been excellent so far,” says Mika Sivula.

The objective is for the new K-Citymarket hypermarket to open in early spring 2026.
