Kojamo and SRV have agreed on the construction of 527 Lumo apartments
Kojamo plc and SRV have signed a co-operation agreement on construction of rental apartments worth approximately EUR 120 million in Helsinki (Munkkivuori district), Espoo (Matinkylä and Iivisniemi districts), Vantaa and Kerava. The agreement covers 6 properties with in total 527 Lumo rental apartments to be completed. The completion of individual projects within the agreement is subject to customary terms and conditions.
