The topping out ceremonies of Housing Company Kakolankallio 2 were carried out on the 23rd November in Turku. The 5-storey block of flats is located on the highest point of its surroundings. The building is the second part of a 3-phase project, including 63 apartments, stores, aid spaces, an underground parking hall and a courtyard built on the top slab of it. The Kakolankallio hill area rises up to 40 meters above the sea level, providing unrestricted views over the entire Turku downtown.

This function was terminated as late as 2007, and the environment was relieved for housing, as well as cultural and recreational activities.
