The second stage of the project has begun. It involves the construction of 250 housing units, a health centre and restaurants.

The new lots in detail:

“Café-brasserie” nearby the swimming pool, with a large terrace overlooking the Gérine river. Administrative premises and rental apartments on four floors.

The neighbourhood’s intergenerational and social hub!
Flats for senior citizens, shared student accommodation and family housing.
Health centre and therapists on the ground floor.

More than 100 flats for sale, along the riverside of the Gérine.

In 2026, the district will provide housing for around 2,500 residents, spread over 13.5 hectares.

TPF bus line n° 8 links the district to Fribourg railway station every 15 minutes. Every resident of a new flat will receive a bus pass (TPF zone 10) for 3 years!

It is the very first ecological district in the canton of Fribourg to receive the OPL One Planet Living label and the SEED certification, the result of a close collaboration between the municipality of Marly, WWF and Marly Innovation Center GmbH.


Urban and architectural diversity

The site is defined by three strata: a park along the Gérine, a lively hillside and an urbanized plateau in the form of a constructed archipelago allowing the development of a site that was once isolated. A trio of public spaces and an urban and architectural diversity ensure the attraction of the other districts of Marly and represent unifying addresses for both the MIC and the habitations. The strong and distinct character of each address will allow the inhabitants to identify and find each other.

Residing and living differently

This new residential area will meet specific integration criteria with the MIC park. It will offer a harmonious and environmentally friendly living space. Housing and professional activities will be combined in a judicious and innovative way. This project will promote a social mix and offer a new coherent urban landscape.

Become an “eco résident”

The acquisition and rental of housing or premises in the eco-neighbourhood is carried out through the intermediary of the real estate company Anura SA, whose offices are located in the MIC building 104.
