YIT to construct apartments for OP-Vuokratuotto fund worth nearly EUR 50 million

YIT and OP-Vuokratuotto non-UCITS Fund have signed agreements on the construction of three residential projects and pre-agreements on the construction of two residential projects to Helsinki metropolitan area, Tampere and Vaasa. The total value of the agreements is nearly EUR 50 million, and the projects will comprise approximately 270 rental apartments. Regarding the pre-agreements, project specific contracts will be signed prior to each project start-up. The aim is to start all the projects during 2016. The projects will be constructed on plots controlled or owned by YIT according to the company’s design. The construction of the projects will not tie YIT’s capital.

“The projects agreed now are a natural continuum to excellent co-operation between OP-Vuokratuotto and YIT”, says portfolio manager Antero Tenhunen from Pohjola Property Management Ltd.
