Lumo provides homes and services — more than 13,000 agreements have been signed on the webstore

Press release 12 September 2019 Lumo is building the future of rental housing. This means a variety of services that make life and housing easier, a strong sense of community and more eco-friendly living at some 35,000 Lumo homes across the Helsinki Metropolitan Area and Finland’s other major growth centres. The digital My Lumo online service is already used by more than 20,000 tenants, and approximately 60 per cent of the tenants in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area choose their Lumo homes from the webstore at 

Uuno Kailaan katu 5 in Espoo’s Vermonniitty neighbourhood is one of the newest Lumo buildings in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area. Nearly 60 per cent of all Lumo homes are located in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area. The rest are located in other major growth centres in the Tampere, Turku, Kuopio and Lahti regions as well as Oulu and Jyväskylä. 

As a frontrunner in urban housing, Lumo provides housing not only in central locations, but also in entirely new residential areas, which brings life to cities and supports urbanisation.  

Vermonniitty combines nature and services 

Vermonniitty is a good example of the development of urban housing in new areas. The urban and modern Vermonniitty has been built on sparsely populated land next to Leppävaara. The area combines services, transport links and nature. It is a peaceful and natural environment that benefits from the proximity of the outdoor recreational areas of Tali, a golf course and the seashore in Laajalahti. At the same time, the nearby Sello shopping centre provides tenants with everything they need, including a cinema. The area also has excellent public transport links. 

The 7–8-storey Lumo building at Uuno Kailaan katu 5 in Vermonniitty has four stairwells with lifts and a total of 135 new apartments. 

Services make life and housing easier 

The purpose of Lumo homes has been to not only create safe housing, but also to make life easier and more convenient. At Lumo homes, tenants get access to housing services and benefits that help them save money.  

“We continuously develop the services in cooperation with our tenants and partners. The digital My Lumo online service is already used by more than 20,000 tenants, and approximately 60 per cent of our tenants in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area choose their Lumo homes from our webstore. Another example is the Lumo Caretaker service developed in collaboration with our partners. We now have a Lumo Caretaker assigned to each of our properties in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area to ensure the comfort of tenants,” says Chief Development Officer Teemu Suila. 

“Tenant cooperation at Lumo homes these days takes place through Lumo teams formed by the tenants. Our various housing services also support a strong sense of community at Lumo buildings. On the ground floor at Uuno Kailaan katu 5, tenants have access to multi-purpose facilities, laundry and drying rooms, three shared saunas as well as apartment-specific storage facilities, outdoor equipment storage rooms and storage space for prams. The opportunity to use car sharing services is another useful benefit,” says Kristian Björksten, head of the newly constructed properties team.
