Sato is developing new non-subsidised rental homes in the Vantaa district of Keimolanmäki. Construction begins in October 2021 and the apartments will be ready for moving into in June 2023.
On 13 September 2021, Sato signed a contract with Peab Oy on the construction of a new apartment building at Lincolninaukio 4, Keimolanmäki, Vantaa. The property will have two staircase sections, eight storeys and a total of 159 homes.
All apartments facing the courtyard will have concrete balconies. Some homes will also have French balconies. The higher floors of the building on the Keimolankaarre street side will feature wooden balconies with a negative carbon footprint because, during their lifecycle, they will absorb more carbon dioxide from the air than they will emit.
Sato currently has around 138 homes at Leksankuja 3 and Varikkokaarre 2 of the Keimolanmäki district.
There will be 12 studio homes with a sleeping loft on the ground floor. These will function as dual-purpose units that can be adapted from homes to business units whenever necessary.
"Adaptability and flexibility have been taken into account in the design of the studio homes of the building. Some of the load-bearing concrete walls of the studios have been replaced with light walls between the units, while other load-bearing walls have the option for future openings. This way they can be combined with the apartments next door if there’s demand for larger apartments in the future," says Arto Aalto, Vice President, Investments, at Sato.
