LEMMINKÄINEN SELLS TAMPERE RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY TO SATO
Lemminkäinen has sold a residential apartment block, projected for construction in Tampere, to SATO, a Finnish property investment company. The new residential estate, called Asunto Oy Tampereen Strada, will be built in central Tampere, next to the Ratina Stadium, at Voimakatu 1. The contracting parties have agreed not to disclose the contract price.
The Strada estate will have 56 high-end residences. Comprising a nine-storey tower and an adjoining five-storey wing, the complex will have a total area of 4,600 m². A two-storey basement under the building will house additional premises, including a 48-car garage.
Construction work at the Strada site has begun with foundation work and piling. The property is due for completion in spring 2013. Another construction contract by Lemminkäinen, on a property called Kiinteistö Oy Ratinanraitti, and a developer-contracting project, called Asunto Oy Tampereen Baana, are underway in the same city block. Strada and Baana will be joined to form a single complex. A shared garage, located in a courtyard in the block's interior, will house parking lots for residents from both buildings.
