History

The building was built between 1995-1997 as headquarters for Nokia by architect Pekka Helin.[2] It has three parts: The two most southern parts of the building were built in the early 1990s and the third, most northern part was built in 2000. Around 5000 employees worked in the premises.

Nokia operated in the building from 1997 to 2014.[2] They owned the building up until December 2012, when it was announced that it had been sold to Finland-based Exilion for €170 million. Nokia continued using the building as its head office building, leasing it on a long term basis.[2]

The building was transferred to Microsoft Mobile as part of the sale of Nokia's mobile phone business to Microsoft in April 2014. The building was renamed Microsoft Talo (literally Microsoft House).

In 2015 Tieto announced its intention to move its head office to part of the building.[3][4] Tieto came into the building in early 2017.[5] Microsoft Mobile closed down in 2017, leaving Tieto as the sole occupier, and the building was renamed as a result.

In December 2017, Exilion sold the building to Deutsche Asset Management (part of Deutsche Bank) for 164 million euros.[6][7]
