Your future home is

On the drawing board


When you are the first resident of a new home, the rental apartments feels instantly like your own. Architects and engineers have new SATOhomes on their drawing desks regularly, and we are steadily planning renovations on our older houses. And it is not uncommon for us to take part in plotting whole new neighborhoods. When that happens, those plans are also gathered here.

Espoo, Niittykumpu - Kappelitie 5

Suhde169 Kappelitie5

SATO will have 77 rental homes built close to the Niittykumpu metro station in Espoo at Kappelitie 5.

The heat source chosen for the property is geothermal heating, which uses solar energy stored in the ground. Geothermal heating helps cut carbon dioxide emissions and, especially with global warming taking place, the advantage of a geothermal heating system is that it can also be used to cool the building. The property will be carbon neutral as regards operational emissions during its use as renewable electricity will be used in addition to geothermal heat.

Niittykumpu is a park-like district with around 5,000 residents located in southeastern Espoo and with excellent public transport links. The metro and numerous bus services connect the district to other areas in Espoo and the rest of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area. By 2030, the number of residents is expected to increase to 12,000.

Construction begins in March 2020 and the apartments will be ready for moving into in December 2021. In Autumn 2021 you will find them on the Find a Home page.

The apartments are ready to rent approximately 1-6 months before they are completed, after we first determine the rents and the moving-in-date (the moving-in-date is rarely delayed, but sometimes houses complete ahead of the planned time). When the apartments are ready to rent, you will find them on the Find a Home page, and we recommend you to fill in an application. The appliceation is valid for 1 month at a time.
