According to the sale announcement, the apartment has views over the rooftops of Töölö.
The kitchen is said to have an Italian design, and the whole is crowned by a large bedroom and luxurious sauna facilities.
Tiihonen bought the apartment already in 2014. According to IS data, he paid EUR 1.3 million for the apartment in due course.
Töölö is a dear place for Tiihonen, because before Etu-Töölö he lived in Taka-Töölö.

Now Tiihonen has completely changed the landscape, because according to Seiska's information, already in 2019 Tiihonen acquired a beach plot of more than 2,500 square meters from Westend in Espoo.
According to Helsinki news, Tiihonen's building intentions quickly caused a stir in the neighbors, according to which the three detached houses to be built on the plot would be too high in relation to the terrain.
However, the Espoo Construction Board decided that the construction of the houses could continue according to plan.
