YIT starts the construction the third phase of an area project called Resiinakortteli in Etu-Lyötty, Oulu, Finland. The third phase comprises approximately 80 apartments and office space on the two first floors. The total value of the project is approximately EUR 20 million and it is estimated to be completed in the end of 2018. The construction starts immediately and the start-up is recorded in the second quarter.

Asunto Oy Oulun Pillipiipari is the third phase of the construction of the city block of so called Resiinakortteli. YIT has constructed altogether already 22 projects and approximately 1,100 apartments to Etu-Lyötty since 2003. The construction of one apartment building is still to be started to Resiinakortteli. Pillipiipari has an excellent location close to the Oulu city centre and numerous services. The building will have altogether 12 floors so the top floors will have nice a view across Oulu – at its best, all the way to the sea. The Pillipiipari apartments are currently at the pre-marketing stage. Read more about the project on YIT’s Homes website (in Finnish).
