Hartaanselänranta is a new residential area of the future in the estuary of Oulujoki river delta - it covers both the continental facing Hartaanranta in the west and Vaakunakylä at Toppilansaari in the east with its surrounding green belts. Hartaanranta is probably familiar to many Oulu residents for its characteristic brick depot.

The entire area  is currently being developed into a diverse housing-oriented area that sits in the estuary in terms of cityscape and respect for the nature. In the future the goal is that the area will serve all Oulu residents and connects the area to the recreational network while complementing it. The area will be the arena for the Finnish Housing Fair in 2025 and an architectural competition is organized in 2019. Urban and Environmental Services of the City of Oulu are in charge of the development of the area.
