Your future home is

On the drawing board

Header

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.

Suhde169 Kappelitie5

SATO will have 77 brand new rental homes built close to the Niittykumpu metro station in Espoo.
