New housing projects
Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) provided us financing that enables us to increase the production of affordable housing in Tampere. Let us introduce two of our new building projects: one in Kissanmaa area and another one in Kaleva.
An extensive construction work has already begun in Kaleva-Hakametsä area. Old commercial building of Isku has been demolished. New apartments for 1300 inhabitants, business premises as well as green areas are currently under construction. Our newest property, Kalevan Stara (main photo) will be here, in the immediate vicinity of shopping and hobby opportunities as well as future Sarvijaakonaukio tram stop. The 56-apartment housing complex is scheduled for completion in the end of 2021.

Apartments of Kalevan Stara are rented primarily to working young adults, but to students as well. Tampere Vocational College Tredu and Tampere University of Applied Sciences’ main campus are within walking distance. Apartment selection includes studios, one-bedroom apartments as well as two-bedroom apartments. Studio apartments’ sizes are minimum 25 m², and the largest two-bedroom apartments cover a total surface of 66.5 square meters. Kalevan Stara’s apartments can be applied in the Fall 2021.
Hipposkylä project in Kissanmaa
A new urban plan of Hipposkylä area has taken place on 5 October 2020. POAS is involved in the town area plan by producing a new building and renovating protected wooden houses. Four sympathetic wooden houses (pictured) are intended to be renovated with the respect of their old characteristics. Renovation will possibly begin in the summer of 2021 and the modernized apartments will be ready in 2022. In addition, POAS will build a new building in the area. Its designing process will begin in 2021 and work is expected to begin in the summer of 2022. Estimated completion time for the building is in August 2023.
