Services that make life easier for the inhabitants of Rout Lëns

As for all of IKO’s projects, people are our number one priority. That’s why one of the cornerstones of the projects involves creating a wide range of different services to make live easier for inhabitants of all ages.

Rout Lëns’s services at a glance

One of the key benefits of the neighbourhood will be that it will offer a physical and online concierge service. This will provide a real hub where residents will enjoy the chance to run into each other. The concierge services offered will save its users precious time by freeing them from logistical restrictions. 

For example, you will be able to pick up your parcels, book a babysitter or hire a venue for a child’s birthday party. You can even pick up your packed lunches there! 50 metres from the school, near the co-working space and sports facilities, it is bound to become an invaluable resource for everyone who uses it! 

In Rout Lëns, all services are designed to fulfil our commitment to be a sustainable, innovative and forward-thinking neighbourhood. That’s why drop-off points (points d’apport volontaires or PAVs) equipped with sunken containers are planned to manage waste.
