YIT has sold a part of its plot in Pushkin, which is located to the south of St. Petersburg. YIT is building the INKERI low-rise apartment complex on the plot. The object of the sale is 5.4 hectares and the purchase price is approximately EUR 15 million. The buyer is FSK Lider, a Russian real estate development company.
The new owner of the plot can build a total of 50,000 square metres of residential buildings in the area. Plots in the area have the required development documents and building permits granted by the authorities.
YIT will continue to own a plot of approximately 10 hectares, on which it is building five-storey apartment buildings. A total of 13 apartment buildings have been constructed in the INKERI residential area in 2016 and 2017, and four more apartment buildings are being built. In the coming years, YIT will complete the construction of the remaining low-rise apartment buildings on its 5.5-hectare plot. There is good demand for apartments in the area among customers who are looking for a modern and functional apartment.
YIT will recognise a loss of approximately EUR 3.5 million from the sale, which is targeted at the result for the second quarter of 2018. The sale of the plot is part of a programme that aims to reduce the employed capital in Russia. YIT announced this programme in September 2016.
