As the South Port was replaced by the Halvoo Port in the 1990's, also the railyards where moved away from the Halvoonniemi cape. Also some train tracks at the Central Railway Station were left unused, so the railway station railyard area was opened for redevelopment in the 2000's. One of the buildings built over the tracks is the only hotel in Halvoo of the international Hutton Inn hotel chain. It opened its doors in 2008. The tower is 87 meters to the roof. An elevated park and a mixed-use complex with a tower is planned for the open space west of the railway station.
