Another 2 residential buildings, in Zawady Street, were completed in over 30% (46 flats and 2 commercial premises).

Over 700 flats (in Opolska, Nadolnik, Hulewiczów and Darzyborska Streets) were being prepared to be built.

Loan in the EIB

In 2017, the European Investment Bank (EIB) granted to Zarząd Komunalnych Zasobów Lokalowych Sp. z o.o a loan of PLN 178 million, intended for the construction of over 1 thousand municipal and social flats, as well as thorough refurbishment of old tenement houses and modernisation of health clinic buildings. The projects under construction will also include renovation of 8 Poznań tenements to improve the energy efficiency of the buildings. Besides thermomodernisation works, general construction and restoration works will be carried out to protect heritage objects, constituting the heritage of European material culture, against degradation.

This is one of the first contracts in Poland concluded by the EIB under the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI). This long-term loan with a favourable interest rate will enable the financing of the investment programme, carried out to satisfy the housing needs of those residents of Poznań that cannot afford to buy their own flat or rent one in the open market.
