It is often called "le 10 e arrondissement of Lyon". With nearly 1
Villeurbanne also benefits from an exceptional public transport network: subway, bus, tram … everything is there to facilitate residents' mobility. Qualities that increase the attractiveness of the city and help to exhaust the supply of goods for sale: "There is a shortage of all surfaces" says Elodie Guillet, head of the agency L Address to Villeurbanne. "Prices have risen sharply in Lyon, and those who can no longer buy fall back to Villeurbanne" she adds.

"In ten years, prices in the city increased by 30%" says M e Lionel Monjeaud, notary in Villeurbanne. "Take the district of Charpennes-Charmettes. The median price is EUR 3,450 / m², with an increase from the year of 12.3%. This area is close to the 6th arrondissement of Lyon and which makes it to one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Villeurbanne. You also have the Grandclement district, where prices are about 3,140 euros / m² with an increase of 16.3% over a year " he says. An optional investment for investors, the sector that benefits from the attractiveness of Médipôle Lyon-Villeurbanne, a hospital center that brings together seven health care facilities, was opened in January 2019.
According to all professionals, there are few territories in Villeurbanne where it is not worth investing . It is not surprising that the district of La Doua with its many students or the Republic, which is well-served by transportation, pulls its pin out of the game … to find a good to buy: "It is near campus that focuses the majority of investors They buy everything! From the studio to the T6 through the City Hall.

The project also includes a new activity program tertiary, crafts and industry, as well as a small cluster of local shops or renovation of some of the old industrial buildings on the site. "Villeurbanne consists of many packages of activities that move gradually, which increases the potential for constructability in the city" states Hervé Simon.
