NCC has been commissioned by the City of Helsinki to build seven apartment buildings comprising a total of 187 apartments in the Herttoniemi area in eastern Helsinki. The combined order value is approximately €35m. According to the city’s strategy, the buildings will offer different types of housing: one building with 47 right of occupancy apartments, three buildings with 77 rental apartments and the remaining three with 63 owner-occupied apartments.
“We are very pleased to finally start the construction of this project after many years of preparation. Built on a top location in Old Herttoniemi, this project will include a variety of affordable housing by the city. The nearly 190 energy-efficient, quality apartments will have Herttoniemi’s services as well as the great outdoor possibilities at their disposal,” said unit manager Merja Rukko from the City of Helsinki.
“The site is a bit challenging, with steep terrain and the vicinity to a hospital and a school, but we have extensive experience from similar projects. We are looking forward to working with the City of Helsinki in developing this area,” said Tuomas Tonteri, Head of Residential Production in Helsinki area, NCC.
