YIT started the construction of two apartment buildings for ICECAPITAL

YIT has started the construction of two apartment buildings for ICECAPITAL. The total value of the projects is EUR 25.5 million, and the construction is estimated to be completed in the summer of 2015. The apartment building projects in the Helsinki metropolitan area will consist of more than 110 apartments, the total area of which will be slightly over 6,000 floor square metres.

The project is part of the agreement on the construction of non-subsidised investment properties in the Helsinki metropolitan area, signed between YIT and ICECAPITAL Housing Fund III Ky in December 2013. Under the agreement, YIT will construct six apartment buildings for ICECAPITAL, comprising a total of 300 apartments. The overall value of the agreement is approximately EUR 64 million.

“The projects will reduce, in particular, the shortage of small and medium-sized apartments in the Helsinki metropolitan area”, says Harri Isoviita, Senior Vice President for Residential Construction at YIT.
