HISTORY

Ekenäs is one of Finland's oldest cities, Ekenäs was founded by King Gustav Vasa in 1546 in his efforts to break the power of the Hansa Empire in the Baltic Sea. The north port has for centuries played an important role in Ekenäs history. On historic ground, where Ekenäs mentioned as port already in 1200's, with maritime heritage, we are creating a new history by revitalizing the harbor environment with the housing block PORT 19 and the shopping center PIER 25.

The oldest city structure in Ekenäs around the church and the Stora Kyrkogatan originated with its street lines and site layout from the 1550s is known to be the oldest developed and preserved area Finland. Despite the fact that half the city's population during the years 1709-1710 died due to the plague, Russian occupation in 1713, a vacated city during several periods, city fire in 1821 and a number of other tragic events such as air and artillery bombardment during the recent war, the city has preserved buildings from 1700 and 1800s. Ekenäs and Porvoo are the only cities where the city plan from the 1600s has not been changed to a schematic grid.

The historical flashback in photos from Ekenäs around the century shift shows that the sea was ever present. Archipelago Cruisers were a natural part of the harbor environment - the proximity to the ocean is what we want to recreate in PORT 19
