Logo Humanicité

Situated at the foot of the metro and in the immediate vicinity of a hospital, this 15-hectare district brings together all kinds of human activities: housing, businesses, shops and services, health, medical and social services, university and cultural activities.


Humanicité is a truly multi-disciplinary urban development centre led by Lille Métropole, the Institut Catholique de Lille and the municipalities of Lomme and Capinghem. All the players in this sustainable, intense and solidarity-based neighbourhood in the making are called upon to invent a rewarding way of living together.


Humanicité, a neighbourhood of services, health and social care facilities, schools, housing, etc.

The Université Catholique de Lille has contributed its expertise as a planner for this area, imagining a site where urban planning is relational and protective, where the mix of inhabitants in blocks encourages encounters and diversity.
