Myyrmäki embraces the walkability trend in housing – new Lumo rental apartments close to everything

Along with each new era, Vantaa’s Myyrmäki district evolves to meet the needs of its residents. In the centre of Myyrmäki, all services needed in everyday life are located conveniently within walking distance. The Lumo rental apartments to be completed on Liesikuja in September will also respond to this walkability trend.

Located in western Vantaa, right at the border of Helsinki, Myyrmäki is the largest district in Vantaa in terms of population. Myyrmäki is a vibrant residential area with excellent public transport links to Helsinki, thanks to the railway line. Myyrmäki’s comprehensive services covering all areas of life ensure that the residents do not have to leave their residential area if they do not want to.

In recent years, walkability has become a permanent trend in housing. People are increasingly gravitating to culturally rich residential areas where everything in life is within walking distance. In the centre of Myyrmäki, this can easily be seen to be the case.

The new Lumo rental apartments in Myyrmäki will be completed at Liesikuja 8 in September. The studios and one-room and two-room apartments on eight floors are suitable for solo dwellers, couples and small families. All 75 apartments will have glazed balconies.

The building will have storage facilities for bicycles, an underground car park with electric vehicle charging points, a washing room, sauna facilities and apartment-specific storage cages. One of the two business premises on the ground floor is expected to house a day-care centre, so the location is ideal for families.

The block’s shared and cosy inner courtyard invites the residents to spend time together, as does the large club room equipped with a kitchen.

“In Myyrmäki, everything a person needs is within walking distance. There are three shopping centres, a health centre, a library, a train station and a sports centre around the corner. Outdoor recreation and green areas are right next door. As Liesikuja 8 also has comprehensive housing company services, you really don’t need to leave the area if you don’t want to,” says Area Director Ville Kilpi.

“Myyrmäki is an excellent example of a completed residential area that has kept up with changes and trends, not forgetting traditions. The apartments on Liesikuja are an excellent representation of sustainability, which we seek in Lumo homes,” Kilpi continues.

The new homes can be rented directly through the Lumo webstore

The 75 Lumo homes at Liesikuja 8 are now available to rent in the Lumo webstore, through which homes can be rented directly. The Lumo homes on Liesikuja will be ready for their residents in September 2022.
