YIT to construct apartments for LocalTapiola’s fund worth over EUR 100 million

YIT and LocalTapiola Asuntosijoitus Suomi Ky housing fund have signed a frame agreement on the construction of over 550 non-subsidised rental apartments to Helsinki metropolitan area, Tampere and Turku. The total value of the frame agreement is over EUR 100 million, and project specific agreements will be signed prior to each project start-up. All projects will be started during spring and summer of 2015 and they will be completed by the end of 2016. The projects will be constructed on plots controlled or owned by YIT according to the company’s design. The construction of the projects will not tie YIT’s capital.

“LocalTapiola is increasing the number of its investment properties with high-quality apartments that are easily accessible. The agreed apartments are located by excellent public transport connections”, says Kim Särs, Director at LocalTapiola Real Estate Asset Management.
