The construction of the Ratina shopping centre began in spring 2015, and the new shopping centre will be completed on 19 April 2018. The Ratina shopping centre consists of the newly constructed Valo-Ratina building and two renovated Functionalist buildings from the 1930s, Ranta-Ratina and Funkkis-Ratina. There will be a spacious and bright parking facility underneath the shopping centre with capacity for 1,215 cars.
Ratina is being built in the heart of Tampere, on the shore of Ratina Bay. Tampere Stadium and the bus station are located next to the shopping centre. The new Valo-Ratina building will be constructed behind the bus station, while Funkkis-Ratina will be the renovated former Vuoltsu building. Ranta-Ratina, in turn, will be the renovated old Autotuonti building, which will also be expanded towards Ratina Bay.
