The Puuvilla city block is the most attractive concentration of trade, services, events and housing in Satakunta on the shore of the Kokemäenjoki river. It is comprised of the Puuvilla shopping centre and Puuvilla Business Park. The area offers unique business premises solutions in light spaces in which aged brick walls and modern solutions have been combined in a unique way.
The city block offers a platform for regionally and nationally operating organisations and companies. Puuvilla is also home to several public-sector organisations – the city block serves the city residents actively.
We offer space solutions in previously renewed business premises, in addition to which premises can be realised in the block according to the customer’s needs. Ask our asset manager for additional information about our space and service solutions in the Puuvilla block.
The Puuvilla shopping centre has been awarded the Platinum LEED environmental certification. Underlying this is the sustainable development of the existing block, which has been the starting point since renewal of the property began.

The Puuvilla shopping centre
Puuvilla city block in total
The Puuvilla block area in the Isosanta district in Pori, on the shore of the Kokemäenjoki river, is comprised of the Puuvilla shopping centre and other buildings in the block, the most significant of which are the old spinning mill and head office. The Puuvilla properties are owned by the mutual real estate company Porin Puuvilla oy. Porin Puuvilla Oy is owned by Renor and Ilmarinen with equal shares.
Gustav Efraim Ramberg founded the Porin Puuvillatehdas cotton mill in 1898. The old spinning mill and weaving mill, and the head office and residential buildings completed in the 1930s, are buildings with cultural and historical value. Finlayson acquired Porin Puuvilla in 1973. Finlayson came under the ownership of the Asko group in the 1980s, and the property later became the property of Renor Oy. Finlayson discontinued its industrial operations in 1994. The Pori university centre moving into the facilities in 1999 was significant for the development of the area.
