amed for its world-class food, vibrant culture and stunning scenery, there are arguably few better places to live (or own a second home) than Lisbon. From walks along the banks of the Tagus River to morning coffee at one of the city’s many craft cafes and sunsets at its innovative craft breweries, there’s not much not to love about the distinctively Portuguese appreciation of Lisbon for the finer things in life.
If you’re tempted to take the plunge (and, frankly, who wouldn’t), let us introduce you Lumino – the most exciting new residential development in the city located in the heart of Lisbon. Designed to revitalize the Campo Pequeno district, an area already known as a world-class cultural center, the 39,000 square meter development is just five minutes from the city’s central business district, Marquês de Pombal, and just 15 minutes from the University of Lisbon, which makes it the perfect place to work and play.
Designed by local firm Saraiva + Associados, alongside British architect TP Bennett, the Capital of the Round Hill and TPG property development is expected to complete the first 97 high-quality residential apartments in the second half of 2022. Each has been designed with its unique location in mind, with floor-to-ceiling windows, balconies and natural materials used throughout to enjoy the abundance of natural light and incredible views of Lisbon.
Spanning one to four bedroom apartments and a four bedroom duplex, care has also been taken to ensure that the development is as sustainable and energy efficient as possible, while emphasis has also been placed on design that will promote a community atmosphere. This is especially evident in the luxurious common areas, which include a 15-meter rooftop swimming pool, accompanied by an expansive mango wood deck and shower area, as well as a south-facing courtyard surrounded by a Lush vegetation to relax and soak up the Portuguese Sun.
“Lisbon has experienced a long-standing imbalance between supply and demand for high-quality accommodation solutions in the residential and student sectors, forcing people to leave the city,” says Michael Bickford, Founder and CEO of Round Hill Capital. “[Lumino] is a signal of our commitment to long-term investment in Portugal, remedying this imbalance and helping to support the growth of national real estate. We look forward to building on the success of this project to further expand our portfolio across Portugal, as well as into the wider European market. “
“Lisbon is one of the most attractive cities to live or study in, and our project will become a sophisticated symbol of a Lisbon lifestyle par excellence,” adds João Pita, Development Director of Round Hill Capital Portugal. “Lumino will offer families and professionals an authentic and connected development, close to the most emblematic monuments and cultural places of the city, as well as to the city’s central business district and other facilities. The introduction of new roads, homes, open green spaces, and retail and hospitality offerings will invigorate and reconnect the local area. “
Listed for sale with Castelhana and JLL, Lumino’s homes are available for off-plan purchase, now offering luxury living in Lisbon’s most exciting and vibrant new community. Our only question: where to register?
