YIT Oyj: YIT starts its first residential project in Warsaw, Poland

YIT CORPORATION Investor News May 17, 2016 at 1:00 p.m.

YIT starts the construction of an apartment building project in
Warsaw's Mokotów district in Poland. The project is YIT's first
residential project in Poland and at the same time the first Finnish
residential project to be built in the country. The apartment
building to be started is the first phase of a project called Nordic
Mokotów, and the first phase will comprise 125 apartments. The value
of the first stage is approximately EUR 13 million and it will be
completed in autumn 2017. The Nordic Mokotów project will comprise a
total of around 300 apartments with sellable area of close to 18,000
square metres, and it will be executed in three phases.

The project is located in a green and peaceful residential area around
six kilometres from both the centre of Warsaw and the airport. There
are versatile services in the surroundings including shopping malls,
leisure facilities, kindergartens and schools. The public
transportation connections are also excellent.

"We're offering comfortable apartments with great location in Warsaw.
We want to distinguish ourselves by offering Nordic design, wooden
terraces, private underground parking spaces for EV and hybrid cars,
and the opportunity to install saunas in the apartments. Thus, I
believe that the interest towards our apartments will be on a high
level", tells Tomasz Konarski, Managing Director of YIT's Polish
subsidiary.

YIT's Polish unit was established in autumn 2015 to tap into the
opportunities provided by one of Europe's biggest residential
markets. There is a significant need for new apartments in Poland
stemming from the improving living standards and purchasing power of
the close to 40 million population. Expansion to Poland is part of
YIT's strategy to grow the business in CEE. CEE countries represented
11% of YIT's revenue in 2015. The revenue from the CEE housing
business has grown at a double-digit rate now for several years and
the profitability has developed favourably.
