SATO signed a contract with Peab Oy on the construction of Asunto Oy Sompasaaren Priki housing company on 13 January 2020. To be built on a site owned by the company, the property will have 57 apartments, of which 41 will be rental homes and 16 will be sold.
The construction of the Kalasatama district now continues in the Sompasaari area and also on the other side of Itäväylä road in Verkkosaari. Soon to provide homes for 3,000 people, the construction of the seaside residential area on Sompasaari island is well underway in response to major demand for apartments with good access to transport connections and services and close to Helsinki's city centre.
“We believe there’s demand for modern homes by the sea,” says Sato Executive Vice President for Investments Antti Aarnio.
The construction of the Sompasaaren Priki property begins in January 2020 and residents will be able to move into their new homes in November 2021.
Sompasaari is an island that will be surrounded by canals in the south and north and by the sea on the eastern, southern and western sides. The area has great public transport connections: The Kalasatama metro station and bus links are within walking distance from the Sompasaari area. Once completed, the coming tram line to Pasila and the tram services to Hakaniemi and Laajasalo via the new bridge connections will improve the area’s transport connections even further.
