The goal is to make Finnoo a pioneer of sustainable urban construction. The construction work will be steered by low-emission, sustainable solutions, ranging from planning to energy use and building materials. Among other solutions, the area will have district heating and district cooling systems, aiming to retain the energy in closed circulation.

Builders selected to build Finnoo are required to commit to solutions that improve the energy efficiency of the buildings, one example of which is the measurement of their energy consumption.

Work in Finnoo has started with the construction of the northern main street network as well as the metro tunnels and underground parts of the station. Streets and bridges will be constructed area by area as the planning progresses.

Housing construction will be started near the metro centre in spring 2020, and the first residents will be able to move into their new homes in early 2021. Things will also soon start happening in the western part of the area, when the Djupsundsbäcken plot assignments start in spring 2019.

Buildings of different heights will give Finnoo an urban look. Substantial parts of Finnoo have been allocated to serve as parks and recreational areas.

Construction of the new city district will continue throughout the 2020s. The entire Finnoo area will mainly be completed in the 2030s.
