Sponda owns many buildings of historical significance in Helsinki city centre. During the last hundred years, many properties that initially were private homes have been transformed into retail and office premises. Each one of these buildings that are over 100 years old have their own stories that deserve to be told, especially now that Finland is celebrating its centenary.
