Urban Campus to open a new co-living space in Lille (FR)

Urban Campus has unveiled plans to open a new coliving residence in partnership with the real estate developer Nhood and the investor Batipart in 2024. The new Coliving will be located in the heart of “La Maillerie” district, 15 minutes away from the centre of Lille. The new residential program fits perfectly into the renovation project of this historic district, focusing on the circular economy and a new way of living. Constructions have already begun at Urban Campus “la Maillerie” residence which will offer 121 studios designed to meet the needs of 25 - 45-year-old singles or those in a relationship, who work in the tertiary centres of the region, such as Les Pres or La Pilaterie.


As in all Urban Campus residences, the fully furnished and equipped apartments are supplemented by large shared spaces to promote good living together. Kitchen, living room, terraces, large garden, coworking space, gym, library, event space will also be available to residents, so that they appropriate the building as a real place to live. 


Urban Campus residences aim to connect residents to the territory in which they live, with particular attention paid to mobility and neighbourhood life. The residence in the Maillerie district is thus located less than 500 meters away from the subway and tram stations, 5 minutes by bike from the TGV and TER station Croix Wasquehal and includes a range of shared electric cars. It is also close to a 5000 m² urban farm and 5 minutes away from Parc Barbieux. Residents benefit from access to services, as well as events and activities, promoting living together, personal and professional development. Urban Campus also offers residents a turnkey service, based on technologies developed in-house, integrating all smart building applications facilitating booking, management and maintenance of residences on a daily basis.


Urban Campus manages 5 coliving residences in Spain over 6000m² and plans to open several residences in Europe starting in 2022, particularly in France, Spain and Portugal. "Our concept is based on solid and in-depth studies on the changing lifestyles and needs that emerge in a context of an increasing urbanization trend, particularly with regard to residential real estate. Urban Campus brings a real societal proposition, added value, well beyond simple real estate speculation," said Maxime Depreux, Chief Development Officer at Urban Campus.


«In the heart of a new city district, this building is Batipart’s coliving fund first investment. The fund has an investment capacity of €300m in Europe for this strategy,» commented Louis Bayon, Managing Director of Batipart Real Estate.
