La Confluence is a great place to live, thanks to the abundance of nature and the creation of high-quality public spaces that are pleasant places to relax and get some fresh air, in an exceptional setting between the Rhône and Saône rivers.
The local public company Lyon Confluence has been the development planner of the urban reconversion project in the southern part of the Lyon peninsula for 20 years. The company was created in 1999 by Métropole de Lyon, and heads the development in accordance with the guidelines provided by the elected officials. Maison de La Confluence welcomes anyone interested in the project and the quarter.
La Confluence was designed to make it easy for companies, startups, entrepreneurs, shopkeepers and small business owners to set up and grow here, under optimal conditions. The quarter offers easy access, a good quality of life, vitality, creation and innovation, making it a great place to invest and set up for business.
From nursery school to higher education, the quarter now offers plenty of education options. Like the richness and diversity of the quarter’s cultural and sport facilities, these opportunities enhance the quality of life in La Confluence.
Accessibility and proximity are the strong points of La Confluence. The neighbourhood is well served by public transport, including metro, tramway, bus and electric shuttle lines, as well as a growing network of bike paths. Thanks to its many public spaces and footpaths, La Confluence is a remarkably walkable city.
In La Confluence, the supply of housing has been designed to be accessible to all. The quarter offers a wide variety of opportunities, including social housing, home ownership on the open market, studios, family flats, student residences and intergenerational housing.
Lyon Confluence is an exceptional urban development project. The objective: to double the size of Lyon's city centre between the Rhône and Saône rivers. Housing for all, offices, public spaces and facilities, and more. Its design preserves the industrial identity of the southern part of the peninsula and adapts it to global warming.
The aim of the urban project implemented in La Confluence is to build a city that is pleasant to live in. This requires urban planning that cares for plants, animals and humans. The challenge is to design and maintain sustainable urban living that gives nature its full rights.
In La Confluence, energy sobriety goes hand in hand with the sustainable consumption of natural resources. The challenge is also to limit the effects of climate change through adapted urban development.
Sustainable development is written in the genes of Lyon Confluence. The quarter’s urban planning projects meet high standards for energy management, protection of the environment and biodiversity and well-being in the city. It is a dynamic source of innovation for the benefit of all.
La Confluence has the particularity of associating a historic neighbourhood with a vast sector accommodating new constructions and rehabilitation of heritage buildings, industrial, logistics and port constructions. To guide this transformation and achieve a seamless flow between the new and the old, three development sectors have been established.
New developments or those born out of heritage rehabilitation make up the identity of the La Confluence territory. These programs, now delivered, welcome residents, employees and traders. They bring the neighborhood to life.
The projects of the second development phase of La Confluence and Sainte-Blandine come to life with construction sites, often large-scale. Focus on future achievements that are at the stage of rough or finishing work.
As a local public company, we have been entrusted with developing La Confluence on behalf of Métropole de Lyon. We play a central role in orchestrating an ecosystem composed of public and private actors and users of the area. Residents, employees and visitors are welcome at Maison de La Confluence.
Lyon Confluence has been mobilised to support sustainable development and fight climate change since the beginning of the project. This commitment is translated through objectives for energy sobriety and increased renewable energy production, as well as the development of sustainable modes of transport.
La Confluence has been a successful gamble, in remaining faithful to demanding requirements throughout its development. Social diversity, architectural quality, environmental performance, user comfort and quality of life have always been guiding forces for Lyon Confluence. Not to mention the focus on innovation designed to serve the well-being of all users in the neighbourhood.
To achieve its ambitions in urban development, Lyon Confluence works in collaboration with many partners to develop high-quality, ambitious and innovative projects. These partnerships cover all the traditional fields of urban planning, but they also go further. Electric mobility, health and air quality and data are the new fields of experimentation.
