Soihtu Korttelikylä – new homes in the middle of everything

Living in the popular residential area of Mäki-Matti, you can enjoy the ease of rental housing. Soihtu Korttelikylä represents a new sort of energy-efficient and communal way of living. Nevertheless, no compromises have been made when it comes to living comfort. 

The students’ favorite services on the main campus of University, such as Ilokivi restaurant and Ilokivi Venue, are also close to Korttelikylä.

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. The construction has been in progress since the autumn of 2020. Soihtu 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.

As cosy and energy efficient as possible

We have set the goals for Soihtu Korttelikylä high. In Soihtu 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. Water consumption is metered and billed individually per apartment.

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.

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.

Soihtu planned the construction at Korttelikylä with care

The Soihtu Korttelikylä housing location has been planned for a lengthy period, and constructing on-site was started in December 2020. Before the actual construction work could be started, as early as Summer 2020, Soihtu took part in a massive earthwork project with the City of Jyväkylä, removing contaminated land from this site that used to host a gasoline station. Soihtu has partnered with the City of Jyväskylä for the updating of the city plan since 2016 according to the pre-contract.
