Let’s take a trip to the town of Croix, France, where a transformative project is underway. 

La Maillerie, once a dormant industrial site, is now being redeveloped into a thriving hub for community and sustainability. This urban development merges residential, commercial, and cultural assets to enhance quality of life, increase economic opportunities, and enrich overall community connection. 

The project represents a total reinvention of the La Maillerie area in Croix, France, and Urban Campus is thrilled to be playing a key part. Let’s dive in!

How can urban spaces evolve to meet modern needs while also promoting community well-being? 

In Croix, France, the answer lies in the innovative development of La Maillerie. The scope of the La Maillerie project encompasses a comprehensive development plan designed to transform the area into a model of modern urban living. This includes the construction of residential units, commercial offices, retail spaces, and cultural venues, each built with sustainability and community engagement at the forefront. 

La Maillerie’s vision is to create a vibrant ‘mini-city’ where residents can work, relax, and socialize in a community-focused environment. This holistic approach includes the development of new educational facilities, cultural landmarks, and technology hubs. At the center of the community will be our Urban Campus La Maillerie, Lille Coliving Space. Together, these developments will synergize to provide an enriched, community-centric living experience.

Urban Campus La Maillerie, Lille Coliving

Urban Campus is set to enrich the dynamic community of La Maillerie with the introduction of our La Maillerie, Lille Coliving Space in July 2024. This will be our largest coliving to-date, with 121 units. As with all of our coliving spaces, our La Maillerie residence will include common spaces like a coworking space, fitness area, movie room, lounge, additional shared kitchen, and terraces for all of our colivers to enjoy. 

More than just coliving

Our La Maillerie Coliving is not just about providing a place to stay; it’s about creating an interconnected environment where colivers can build meaningful relationships. Urban Campus focuses on reducing urban isolation specifically through our social events and communal spaces, helping residents form friendships and feel more integrated in the area. 

Participating in La Maillerie’s urban development in Croix, France aligns perfectly with our mission to craft living spaces that are not only convenient but also socially engaging and environmentally responsible. By integrating innovative design with community centric initiatives, we aim to contribute significantly to the social fabric of La Maillerie, ensuring that the development becomes a thriving place for personal and professional growth.

 

Urban Campus Looking to the Future

Since its inception in 2016, Urban Campus has been at the forefront of revolutionizing urban living with community-focused coliving spaces aimed primarily at young professionals in France and Spain. We continue to open many new coliving assets, however, are also branching into a wider range of housing solutions

The development project at La Maillerie exemplifies the profound commitment of Urban Campus to transcend traditional housing options. Our mission encompasses community engagement, urban revitalization, and uniting diverse individuals under a new vision of urban living. Our ventures now range from multifamily complexes to affordably priced rental housing (“logements locatifs intermédiaires”), all strategically designed to meet the varied needs of an expansive urban demographic. 

Vision for Urban Living

We envision a future where all urban dwellers have access to housing that is not only economically feasible but also culturally enriching. By continuing to innovate how we design and manage our properties, Urban Campus is invoking meaningful change in the housing sector. Our La Maillerie Coliving is another leap forward in our goal of offering housing options that promote inclusivity, connectivity, and overall well-being. We can’t wait to open!
