«By opening up a stream and bringing it to the surface right in the heart of a mixed project like this one confirms that it’s possible to renew the urban districts of tomorrow. A new chapter in the story! ».
Stéphane Ravasi, Equilis Project Leader
Neighboourhood mixed development (housing, retail, retirement home)
This abandoned former paper production site from the turn of the 19th century in Genval has been given a whole new lease of life. Not only has the river running through the area been cleaned and restored, but a thriving neighbourhood has been conceived and constructed.
The 7 hectares of terrain – built over three phases – is the perfect example of a mixed and modern development right next to a protected green space.
The project includes 390 apartments, 15,000 m2 of commercial properties, many already rented out to well-known retailers but also smaller local shops and a retirement home with 101 full-service apartments.
Offering easy access to Brussels via a regular train service close by, the site is a new hub of activity and a fitting final chapter to the Papeteries story.
