YIT starts the construction of an apartment building project in Fabriikki, Turku, Finland. The project is Asunto Oy Turun Fabriikin Focus with approximately 90 apartments and it is the second project in the area. The total value of the project is approximately EUR 15 million and the start-up is recorded in the second quarter. The project will be completed in August 2018.

Focus is located in the new and urban Fabriikki area as part of the new historical Turku, next to the Logomo Centre of Culture.
