LUCILINE-RIVES DE SEINE, the new eco-district meets the demand for housing and floor space in the centre of the metropolitan area
Welcome to Luciline !
To the west of Rouen, 5 minutes by foot from the Cathedral, the 1st eco-district of the metropolitan area is now being built.
The arrival of the first inhabitants of this new district covering 9 hectares at the end of 2014 and the delivery of the Andrée Putman mall consisting of a landscaped garden are now used to highlight the identity of this eco-district and federate its users and residents around a new way of living and working.
The mixed, dense district consists of housing, offices and shops. Balanced, thanks to the various accommodation on offer ranging from social housing, to the usufruct of rental units on behalf of social housing operators or housing for sale, accommodation in the city centre area consists of townhouses and small apartment buildings.
Very well served by 3 lines of public transport with a high level of service, Luciline-Rives de Seine benefits from an outstanding location along the Seine near the Docks 76 (commercial and cultural mall), as well as leisure and sports facilities such the Kindarena.
An urban metaphor of water in the heart of the eco-district
The structuring element of the urban landscape is based on the uncovering of the local underground stream, the Luciline, which has led to the creation of a network of swales (small water collection and irrigation ditches) and channels for recovering rainwater from buildings and public spaces.
- Geothermal energy is used for heating and cooling thanks to the presence of a ground water table at a constant temperature of 15°C. The general use of this process on the scale of a neighbourhood is virtually unique in France.
- Support for urban biodiversity through this surface water system flowing through green spaces.
- Priority has been given to walking for the pioneer public areas, in a very pleasant and very green environment.
