The construction of the Aitiopaikka housing location is well underway. The windows and doors of the first section are already in place and visible from the outside. The indoor work has already begun in the first section: for example, the inner walls of the apartments are being smoothed, painted, and tiled.
The buildings in the housing locations form a four-pointed entity. The Aitiopaikka location is being built phase-by-phase, which makes working on the indoor parts of the first section possible even though the groundwork for the latter sections is still being laid. There are approximately 50 workers working at the site.
The Aitiopaikka location will have 255 apartments in total, some 100 of which will be finished by fall 2018. These apartments will be approximately 30 square meters in size. Students can start applying for the apartments three months before the construction is finished. TYS will send further information about the application process before the process begins.
There is still some traffic around the construction site: please be cautious when moving about the area. Entering the construction site is strictly forbidden. The contractor, YIT Rakennus Oy, will inform the residents of the area as the construction progresses. The TYS communication will also follow the project’s progress.
The property department of TYS can provide more information about the project:
