Thanks for the comments! Yeah, the inner city is going to be really dense in terms of Nordic cities, but on the other hand the city won't be as spread out as Nordic cities are, so I don't know if Halvoo would be as big as for example Stockholm is in terms of population.

Halvoo had spread to cover the whole width of Halvoonniemi cape by the end of 19th century. However, the west side comprised mostly of low-rise wooden buildings and they were mostly replaced between 1930's and 1970's. Here's a couple of examples of such redevelopments: the block closer to the camera was redeveloped in the 1930's and the other block in the 1950's and 1960's.
