8 reasons to choose LSC
We care about people’s wellbeing
We believe that wellbeing at work is a key pillar of happiness, enabling us to be creative, efficient and happy in our everyday lives. Our mission is to provide the best possible conditions for every single person working in our premises, whatever their position or job description.
We value the sea and the metro
Although our neighbours include Aalto University, a world-class art museum and hundreds of start-ups, other innovation companies and the headquarters of global listed companies, the proximity of urban nature is a key element of LSC’s unique quality. The distance from our main entrance is just as short to the metro station as to the seashore. This matters.
We provide all you need
In addition to first-class restaurant, catering and reception services as well as meeting and entertainment facilities, we also offer indoor bicycle parking, a car wash, occupational health care centre, dentist, hair salon, massage, laundry, gym and plenty of shower rooms. We want to offer everything that our tenants may need.
We are a good partner
LSC is not a faceless business park but an equal community formed of companies of different sizes. Our current premises house 34 companies, all with different wishes and needs. Our mission is to ensure that all the companies and people in our buildings feel fully welcome and at home.
We listen to our customers’ wishes
LSC currently houses a total of 34 world-class life science and technology companies.
Whether their preferences involve lighting, indoor air quality, furniture materials, temperature, or the amount of plants, we strive to listen to every tenant. All our premises, current and future, can easily be adapted to our tenants’ needs.
We are easy to reach
LSC is located just an 11-minute metro ride from central Helsinki. We can also be reached by bicycle, electric scooter, bus, taxi or private car.

We are soon expanding into a new building
We are currently planning an 8,000-square-metre, seven-storey expansion that will take sustainability aspects even better into consideration. Once the expansion is completed in 2022, right next to our current buildings, it will serve as the ultramodern workplace for a total of 1,700 top life science and technology professionals in some 40 companies.
We care about the environment
Our corporate responsibility approach is based on the sustainable business principles defined by the United Nations.We track energy and water consumption, monitor emissions, use LED lighting, recycle and sort, and encourage people to maximise their physical activity and use public transport. LSC holds a BREEAM environmental certificate, and we continue to further improve the sustainability of our operations through our Niam Green initiative. Our goal is to continuously reduce our carbon footprint.
A new era is just around the corner
Our ultramodern, 8.000-square-metre expansion will be completed in 2022 right next to our current building. Upon its completion, a total of 40 world-class life science and technology companies will operate in our premises.
