Soihtu Korttelikylä – new homes in the middle of everything

The construction of Soihtu Korttelikylä begins in the summer of 2020, and tenants can move into their new homes in the summer of 2022.

Soihtu Korttelikylä is carried out in accordance with our values

Soihtu Korttelikylä will be constructed nearby the well-known areas of Seminaarinmäki, Hippos and Mäki-Matti and the construction will begin in the autumn of 2020. Korttelikylä is a new type of housing location for those who appreciate a central location, services nearby, high-quality and responsible construction and active lifestyle.

We will construct two apartment buildings in Soihtu Korttelikylä and the total area of the buildings will be approximately of 3800 sqm. In total, Soihtu will have 158 apartments in Soihtu Korttelikylä, 142 studios and 16 two-room apartments. We will inform about the application period of the apartments later.

Soihtu Korttelikylä will be carried out as a contract that contains technical planning and solutions and JYY has chosen the project to be carried out by Pohjola Rakennus Oy Suomi. The architect of Korttelikylä is Inaro Oy.

As cosy and energy efficient as possible

We have set the goals for Korttelikylä high. In Korttelikylä, we want to offer as high-quality housing as possible near the university and essential services but with affordable prices, for example the welfare of students in mind.

The apartments in Soihtu Korttelikylä are compact but individuality hasn’t been forgotten: the apartments on the highest floors of the gabled houses are light and spacious studios with balconies. The housing location will be realized in the highest energy class A, and the tenants will be encouraged to live without a car for example by realizing a lot of space for storing bicycles.

By involving we can create the best possible common rooms

Tenants of Korttelikylä will also have a diverse community space that all tenants can use. It will be carried out in collaboration with Central Finland Student Housing Foundation (KOAS) who are also constructing their own buildings in the housing location of Korttelikylä. When planning the community spaces wishes have also been gathered from tenants and students.
