Lahti offers high quality of life and energy efficiency
The need for car transport will be reduced by condensing the urban structure and offering high-quality pedestrian and bicycle routes to residential areas. The attractiveness of the compact urban structure and natural environments will be ensured by land use planning. A large amount of new housing will be built near Lahti city centre in the next few years with the development of the Ranta-Kartano, Niemi, Sopenkorpi and railway station areas.
The new housing will be built with a focus on saving energy. The City of Lahti will develop new models for making older housing more energy efficient. The reduction of energy consumption in housing has a significant effect on the realization of Lahti’s environmental objectives.
