This New-Town-in-Town is part of Tallinn and has a truly remarkable and unique circular layout. The centre of the area is a circular pond in the middle of a carfree circular park, surrounded by a circle of high apartment blocks. Öismäe was originally planned for 45.000 inhabitants by Malle Meelak and Mart Port in 1968; it was completed in mid 1980's. It is one of the three main postwar areas in Tallinn, with the earlier Mustamäe (1958), based on the idea of the mikrorayon, and the later, more dense Lasnamäe (1970).
