Vigorous construction activities continue in different parts of Vuores. Construction work is started on plots of blocks of flats, terraced houses and detached houses at regular intervals. Out of all the city districts in Tampere, it has been in Vuores where the largest number of dwellings have been completed in recent years. Vuores had about 4,000 residents in spring 2018.

As regards individual plots, the residential areas of Mäyränmäki, the centre of Vuores, Virolainen and Koukkuranta are still being constructed. The following areas to be built are Rimmi and Isokuusi. Some of the local detailed planning for Isokuusi is still ongoing. The planning of Västinginmäki is ongoing.

The partial master plan for Vuores has been drawn up in cooperation with Tampere and Lempäälä, but, at the moment, construction is ongoing only on the side of Tampere.

Continuous development of the services

The centre of the public services provided in Vuores is the Vuores community centre, where grades 1‒6 of the Vuores school and a daycare centre are located. The facilities for grades 7‒9 will be completed at the Vuores community centre in 2019. Another daycare centre is located at the Klaava shopping centre and the third daycare centre in Mäyränmäki. A daycare centre with 160 places and the facilities for grades 1 and 2 are being planned to be constructed in Isokuusi.

The volume of commercial services keep growing: the centre of Vuores already has two grocery shops, hairdressers, a lunch café and a pizzeria. Bus number 5 of Tampere City Transport runs from Tampere to Vuores. It operates 4 times per hour.

Besides the extensive outdoor routes, the area also has a wide central park, playgrounds, allotment gardens and an artificial turf field for football.
