Niittykumpu in Espoo in close proximity to nature attracting residents  

New Lumo rental apartments to be completed in early summer at Niittykatu 15, Espoo. Niittykumpu in Espoo has undergone major renewals in recent years. People moving to the area are attracted by communal living, ecological values and the surrounding green areas. The first Lumo rental building will be completed in Niittykumpu over the course of the spring, with the 56 new apartments welcoming residents in early summer.

Despite Niittykumpu being a traditional area in Espoo in close proximity to nature and with buildings constructed in the 1960s, the area has undergone major renewals in recent years with the arrival of the metro and the construction of new buildings. The large commercial centres of Tapiola and Matinkylä can be accessed seamlessly from Niittykumpu along walkways and cycle paths. The arrival of the metro has brought the centre of Helsinki a mere 15-minute metro ride away. The first Lumo building in Niittykumpu, Espoo will be completed in early summer.

“Niittykatu 15 is our first building location in Niittykumpu. The attractiveness of the area has increased in the eyes of both people buying property and people looking for rental apartments. With the new building, we want to serve those residents who highly value the close proximity of nature and great public transport links. The floor plans also include larger apartments for families and those residents that appreciate space,” says the Lumo Sales Director Ville Kilpi.

Spaciousness and green rooms responding to new living requirements

The 56 apartments are of different sizes, ranging from one-room apartments all the way to 143 square metre family apartments. All apartments have balconies or terraces. Instead of a balcony, three of the apartments are equipped with a 7.5 square metre green room that is still a rare feature in Finnish construction.

A green room serves residents interested in gardening and can also act as an extended living room, dining area, music room or a home gym, for instance. The window surfaces provide more light and can be partly opened. 

“Today, remote work is a daily option for more and more people, meaning that workspaces, extra square metres and additional rooms are in demand. Green room is a trend that is slowly arriving to Finland as well. The space they provide can be utilised in a number of different ways,” Kilpi explains.

The new homes can be rented directly from the webstore

The Lumo homes of Niittykatu 15 are now available to be rented on the Lumo webstore. The apartments can be rented directly; there is no need to send a separate application. The new Lumo homes of Niittykumpu are ready to be moved into in early summer.
