A-Kruunu Ltd is a special assignment company owned by the State and operating under the guidance of the Ministry of the Environment. The construction of the company's first housing projects began in the summer of 2015. In July 2021 we crossed the 1800 homes mark.
A-Kruunu's task is to build affordable rental housing. The aim is to increase construction activities so that during 2021 the company initiates construction of around 800 homes, with the majority being in the Helsinki region, 25% located outside the Helsinki region, and 15% being wooden apartment buildings. Outside the Helsinki region, homes are built in the largest urban regions, where the need for affordable rental housing is significant.
In selecting the sites for construction, consideration is given to the general demand for rental housing in the residential area and the suitability of the location within the community structure. In addition to timber construction, the construction work seeks to promote new innovations which take the above-mentioned objectives into account.
The majority of housing production takes place in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area and its surrounding municipalities. From the beginning of 2019, the operating area has also been extended to some of the other largest urban regions in our country which have a high demand for affordable rental housing. A-Kruunu also contributes significantly to the implementation of larger area project and the development of high-quality urban housing in its operating areas.
Good resident selection principles are applied to the selection of residents in order to offer the rental homes to households most in need of affordable rental housing. At the same time, a diverse profile of residents is ensured.
The company operates with a long-term perspective, complies with good practice within the field and operates in accordance with the instructions for state companies’ ownership policy.
