Still, I agree that HIFK needs a new arena, but the planned location isn't that great. There will be a lot of opposition from the adjacent neighborhoods, and that will stall the project a lot. A better option would be to either renovate the old arena, or to find a more suitable place for the new one.
Still Helsinki is number 2 in Nordics in growth and we are pretty high in European level also.

Some stats I found, annual growth rate (%)

Oslo: 0.99
Helsinki: 0.81 and 0.83
Stockholm: 0.58 and 0.67
Copenhagen: 0.04
