ABC News. What kind of housing will be built in Kiev
Experts of the construction industry of Ukraine predicted which of the market segments today is the most promising and whether the comfort class can displace the economy.
Anna Layevska, the commercial director of "Intergal-Bud" company, has presented her assessment of the situation:
"Today we can distinguish at least four clearly defined segments. The most affordable is the economy class, followed is the comfort class, higher is the business class and completing the list the premium new buildings. This segmentation allows developers to work more purposefully with their sector market, offering the selected audience the desired format and forming a price offer.
We are convinced that comfort and business class are most promising in the capital, since such facilities have an optimal price-quality ratio, are located in comfortable locations for living, and are characterized by the presence of the necessary infrastructure and recreation areas on the territory of the complexes.As for the opinion of experts that comfort-class displaces the economy, in this statement there is a rational grain. The potential of the comfort class lies precisely in the fact that people no longer agree to pay for "bare" square meters, they want to live with greater comfort than the standard "cost of living" economy offers.
In the comfort class complexes, all the parameters have been significantly improved, ranging from architecture, layouts and the quality of interior decoration of apartments to infrastructure of the residential complex, landscaping and parking, materials and technologies used in construction. Such housing implies a comfortable living space, which is not limited to the apartment.
