The Prime Minister Office, Mayor and Parliament members paid a visit to the Tsaiz Eco Town

On May 31, 2021, the Prime Minister’s Office, Mayor Mr. Sumiyabazar Dolgorsuren, and Parliament Members Mrs. Bulgantuya Khurelbaatar and Mr. Enkhbayar Battumur paid a visit to the Tsaiz Eco Town in Bayanzurkh district, 19th khoroo of Ulaanbaatar – an affordable housing, ger district redevelopment pilot project by Erel LLC, GIZ Mongolei, NOSK, Mongolian Sustainable Finance Association and local banks. 5 ger district families were relocated and on its land 20 energy efficient apartments were built. 5 families will be relocated back to the apartments and the remaining 15 apartments are being sold on the market with the help of local banks, which are giving mortgage of 6-12%.
Erel LLC is financing and building the apartments with locally sourced and energy efficient construction materials from the Prefabricated Building Factory (“BUK factory”). GIZ Mongolei is making sure the building is energy efficient by doing energy audits and also providing up to 18 million grants to ger district families who are buying apartments for the first time. NOSK and the City are responsible for connecting the building with central water, heating and sewage systems.
The apartments are built in accordance with the German architecture dictated by GIZ Mongolei with size options of 42.9m2 (2-room, 1 bath) and 69.2m2 (3-room, 1.5 bath duplex). Each family will have an outdoor parking in the north side, and the children’s playground and green area are built for the residents on the south side. Each family has a big balcony facing south, so that they can enjoy sun and see their children play on the playground. High-rise buildings create stress and traffic jam to the area; hence this low-density building is being built as a model to show how affordable housing projects should be done in the future.
We would like to thank all the subcontractors and partners who worked with us on this social impact high project. Erel LLC is determined to continue building quality buildings in Ulaanbaatar with our state-of-the-art, fully automated precast factory with its German technology.
