The Roots, a new project that focuses on the circular economy and low-carbon construction

Published on  07/06/2021

Agora conducted a call for tenders/competition among teams of developers/architects to develop a project on Square Mile lot 41 in Belval. The project presented by the team made up of BPI Real Estate and Unibra Real Estate developers, in collaboration with the architectural firm ArtBuild Architects, was chosen as the winner of the competition. 


Four wooden buildings will be built above an underground 260-space car park and a mixed traditional-style com-mercial/office base.  One of the buildings will be for office space, and the other three will contain 94 accommodation units. These units, ranging from studios to four-bedroom apartments, will be designed to allow a high level of flexibi-lity of space in order to adapt to changing family needs. The emphasis will be on biodiversity and renewable energy. 
The project, which will be carried out with a circular econo-my approach, will receive the Breeam, Well and BBCA (Low Carbon Building) labels.



The deed of sale for the land will be signed no later than 30 June 2021. Work should begin in the second half of 2022 for the project to be finalised in 2024.

After the Glesener21 projects in Luxembourg and Gravity in Differdange, BPI Real Estate and Unibra Real Estate are strengthening their collaboration through this project and positioning themselves as leading developers in environmentally friendly projects and key players in Luxembourg.
ArtBuild Architects has a wealth of  experience in timber construction projects and will be supported by Wood Shapers.

- Retail area: approx. 2,000 m²

- Office space: approx. 7.000 m²
