LEMMINKÄINEN STARTS A NEW HOUSING DEVELOPMENT IN SEINÄJOKI

Lemminkäinen Group's Oy Konte Ab is building a 15-unit apartment house in
Seinäjoki as a developer contracting project. The apartment building (As Oy
Seinäjoen Hermanni) will complete the construction of the park-like Tala
residential area. Construction work will begin immediately. 

”Seinäjoki is the centre of growth in the Ostrobothnia region of Western
Finland. Among other things, the decision to locate the Agency for Rural
Affairs in Seinäjoki will bring 200 new residents to the city,” says Tom Ekman,
the Managing Director of Konte. 

”Despite the economic downturn, there is still a strong belief in the region's
growth. There's certainly no shortage of buyers for high-quality homes in good
locations. Selling times have lengthened, but most of the apartments in the
Hermanni building have already been reserved,” says Sakari Kuusio, Konte's
Regional Director. 

Konte has previously built two apartment buildings (As Oy Seinäjoen Tala and As
Oy Uppala) as well as a row house site (As Oy Seinäjoen Lilli) in the beautiful
surroundings of Seinäjoki's Wegelius Park. Residents will soon be able to enjoy
the restored café and restaurant of Uppala manor house, which will open to the
public in the summer.
