What's so wrong with "Helsinki Garden"? After all they are planning the terrestrial buildings to be around the center garden. And it would be the name for the whole complex afaik. The HIFK's arena underground would most likely get some sponsor name.
Oh and excellent news of course! I like the design and this kind of multi-purpose complex is the only way to get a permission to build a new arena within a walking distance of city center. The synergy benefits for the public funded Olympic Stadium renovations should help with the politics too
Harkimo is deep in the Finnish Icehockey Federation with his back washing so I don't see the possible new arena to be home of the national team as long as Kummola is in charge. But you never know Hartwall Areena will be around 20 years old already if this gets done in the time schedule, which I doubt a little bit but still very optimistic about the project.
