About 3,000 low-cost apartments for rental will be built in Warsaw as part of the Polish government’s Home-plus affordable housing programme, officials have said.

The apartments will be constructed on a 15-hectare lot in Warsaw’s southern Ursynów district in a project coordinated by state-owned company BGK Nieruchomości, with completion scheduled for 2021.
The apartments will come with accompanying infrastructure including a nursery, a school, a library and a health clinic, according to officials.
“We want to design a model housing estate where people will be able to live in comfort regardless of how thick their wallets are,” said BGK Nieruchomości board member Grzegorz Muszyński. “Our goal is to create a development that will take into account the needs of young people, families with children and the elderly.”
The tenants would be able to acquire ownership of their apartments after 30 years.
There is still a shortage of around 3 million housing units in Poland to meet the European average in terms of the number of dwellings per 1,000 inhabitants, real estate experts say.
