YIT has signed an agreement to sell a logistics property of approximately 15,000 square metres located in Vantaa’s Hakkila district to an international investment company. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

The property is one of the logistics properties under development that was included in the framework agreement signed with the investment company in October 2019. YIT has previously sold two properties to the investment company.

When completed, the property will house a PostNord logistics terminal. Its location along traffic routes is advantageous for a logistics company in terms of heavy traffic as well as delivery operations in the Helsinki metropolitan area and nearby areas. The property offers ideal connections along ring roads to Helsinki, Vuosaari harbour and the rest of Finland. 

The premises of the logistics terminal will be completed in autumn 2022. LEED Silver environmental certification will be sought for the building.
