YIT to construct apartments worth approximately EUR 50 million for non-UCITS Fund OP-Vuokratuotto
YIT and non-UCITS Fund OP-Vuokratuotto have signed an agreement on the construction of over 300 apartments to growth centres in various locations in Finland. The total value of the agreement is approximately EUR 50 million. The first project will be constructed in Tampere, and work will begin immediately. All the projects will be completed in 2016. The projects are designed by YIT, and will be constructed on plots owned or managed by YIT.
“The agreement continues the excellent cooperation with OP-Vuokratuotto Fund. The projects will bring a relief to the housing shortage in the growth centres. In addition, the positive employment impact of the deal is significant”, says Matti Koskela, Senior Vice President, Building Construction at YIT.
“OP-Vuokratuotto Fund offers its customers an easy way to invest in housing. In addition, we want to provide high-quality apartments to our tenants. The apartments that will be constructed within the framework of the agreement suit the fund’s strategy excellently and at the same time, the deal strengthens further the well-functioning cooperation with YIT”, says portfolio manager Antero Tenhunen from Pohjola Property Management Ltd, which serves as the advisor for the fund.
