YIT starts the construction of an area project in Prague, the Czech Republic

YIT starts the construction of a significant area development project in Prague’s 9th district. A total of nearly 900 apartments will be constructed in the 9-hectare area by 2025. The total value of the project is over EUR 100 million and it will be constructed in several phases. The project’s first phase that starts now will consist of approximately 150 apartments and will be completed in 2017. The value of the first phase is over EUR 15 million.

The project will be constructed in one of the fastest developing parts of the city. The good public transport connections, green area and the vicinity of versatile services make the location an attractive living area. YIT announced the area’s plot acquisition in spring 2015.
