YIT builds two new apartment buildings in Moscow, Russia

YIT has launched the construction of two new apartment buildings near the Bitsa natural park in Moscow, Russia. The two separate buildings are 10-storey and 15/17-storey and will have a total of 212 apartments. The combined surface of the buildings is 12,300 square metres, and the lower floors will include 700 square metres of other premises. The sales of the apartments commenced in April 2012 and the plan is to commission them during the fall in 2014.

 The residential complex is called Zelenyj bereg ("Green Shore") and will be built by CityStroi, YIT's Moscow-based subsidiary. The apartments are individual, and their floor solutions can be modified as the residents prefer. Young families in particular will be offered smaller apartments, starting from 34 square metres. In addition, the site will have an underground parking garage and an outdoor parking area for visitors.

Zelenyj bereg is expected to be particularly popular among those who appreciate nature. The Bitsa Park is the second-largest nature preserve in Moscow and it provides excellent recreational and outdoor activity options for the future residents. The well-known pond area of the park is situated near the buildings. The appeal of the residential complex is increased by modern services, excellent connections and a magnificent view of the park from the apartments.

Residential buildings constructed by YIT in Moscow are highly preferred locations for their high quality and good design. The locations have also won several distinguished local construction sector awards.*)
