The Aitiopaikka construction site stays busy on Midsummer week as well. Work has been proceeding on schedule in warm, sunny conditions lately. The first part of the building is estimated to be completed around New Year, with the first residents being able to move into their new homes in January.
A new cozy, market square-like area is being created on the corner of the roads Inspehtorinkatu and Pisplantie. This area will be called the Tutor square. A display will be installed on the square for monitoring the amount of power produced by the solar energy system installed on the roof of Aitiopaikka, and whether it has reduced CO2emissions. The display will also show other interesting information.
Ground construction work on the courtyard has started. The courtyard will be a cozy and sheltered hangout place with various activities. It will feature e.g. a playing court, outdoor exercise equipment, economic plants (apple trees, berry bushes) and a barbecue spot.
Applications for Aitiopaikka apartments begin in October 2018 (for agreements starting on 1.1.2019). TYS will inform about apartment application, rents etc. later. The building’s roughly 250 apartments are estimated to be fully finished by summer 2019.
We kindly remind those moving about in nearby areas to be cautious, as there is work traffic, street work etc. on the streets. Entering the Aitiopaikka site is strictly prohibited. The contractor, YIT Rakennus Oy, will also inform residents in the area as needed. TYS’ communication will monitor the project’s progress.
