Nicholas II, the last Emperor of Russia, signs the articles of association of the public limited company Dvigatel in the palace in Tsarskoye Selo near Saint Petersburg. In the outskirts of Tallinn, construction begins on the largest railway plant in Estonia. The plant gets a name symbolising forceful advancement – Dvigatel means “engine” in Russian.
One of the largest plants in Estonia commences operations. Thousands of carriages roll out the Dvigatel plant and make their way to the vastness of Russia.
The market becomes stunted in the independent Republic of Estonia. The company goes bankrupt and is acquired by the state. Production of airplanes begins on spaces that have been leased out to ease the situation. The area next to the plant develops into an airport with the heaviest traffic in Eastern Europe at the time.
The plant, damaged by war, undergoes a new rebuild in the communist society. Thousands of workers are brought here from all over the Soviet Union, and residential areas, schools, kindergartens, polyclinic, cultural house and many other buildings are established for their use. For secrecy, the plant is called Mailbox no. 130.
During the Cold War, the plant manufactures experimental technological equipment for the Soviet army and the space industry. Residents of Estonia and Tallinn live in ignorance from what is actually taking place behind the high walls and heavy concrete structures.
The Soviet Union collapses, and the plant loses all its market potential. A few years later, the government-owned public limited company Dvigatel is privatised by Mainor AS.
Under the leadership of Mainor’s leader and visionary Ülo Pärnits, an idea is born to establish a smart business campus in the ruins of Dvigatel and give a push to the development of Estonian society and economy. Ülemiste City is born.
Technopolis Plc. joins the development of Ülemiste City. Ülemiste City becomes a member of the largest network of business campuses in the Nordic countries and the Baltic States.
Ülemiste City is growing with dizzying speed. The ruined plant complex has become a diverse, quickly developing campus enriched with services where added value comes from more than 10,000 people working here everyday. Construction of the first homes begins.
Ülemiste City has become a multifunctional city operating round-the-clock where more than 20,000 people live, study and work. For many, this international environment has become a place they call home.
