 Nordecon started construction of Uus-Tammelinna residential quarter in Tartu in spring 2014. Apartment buildings are three- to five-storey, with 15 to 25 apartments.

 Architect of the buildings is Indrek Näkk from architectural office INA. Apartments of Uus-Tammelinna have one, two, three or four rooms. The immovable property can be accessed via recently completed Savi Street. Each apartment has a balcony accessible from the living room. Larger four-room apartments have sauna and additional balcony accessible from a bedroom.

Tammelinn district in Tartu was one of the first city districts in Estonia planned according to the principle of modern garden suburb. The plan of garden suburb was completed in 1923. Mixed principle was used for buildings. In addition to single family houses, also apartment buildings were planned in the part of the suburb located near the city – between Riia and Tamme streets. In the architectural history of Estonia, the plan of Tamme garden suburb and the result of its construction has been compared to Nõmme and Merivälja garden suburbs in Tallinn and with Pärnu resort area.

There is a high-level district school in Tammelinn, and new high school was opened in 2015. Both schools remain within a walking distance of few minutes from the new apartment buildings. The investment plan of the City of Tartu includes also a new nursery school, which should be constructed in coming years and will be located at the distance of some hundred meters from the apartment buildings.
