‘Legendary’ is Mikontalo’s middle name! Once the biggest apartment building of Scandinavia, Mikontalo is still the landmark of Hervanta. With great pride, TOAS renovated this complex back in 2008-2009 to meet today’s standards.

A construction is ongoing in the location where the three-person shared apartments are renovated into studios and two-room apartments. The residents of the building are informed about the renovation and its details as the project progresses. The renovation will cause some noise disturbance to nearby apartments.

You cannot apply to the renovated apartments only but all Mikontalo’s apartments are applied with the same applications.
