“Manskun Rasti” is a group of four buildings, including “Neptun”, situated in Ruskeasuo district of Helsinki, on Mannerheimintie street which is popularly known as Mansku. It is a group of eco-friendly office buildings, all of them modern, energy-efficient and highly flexible.
The names of the four buildings – Kathy, Neptun, Talisman and Lilly – are the names of four horses that belonged to Finnish General C.G.E. Mannerheim, an important figure in Finnish national history and the one the street got its name from.
There is a yard area between the four buildings that resembles a cross, so the whole project was named Mannerheim’s Cross (Manskun Rasti). Underneath this yard area is three-storey parking garage which will be expanded during the building process of the next two buildings.
