A total of 188 new residential units will be built, including 141 subsidised residential units.
In the second half of 2019, citydev.brussels launched three categories of calls for projects, each divided into 2 types: contaminated soil and non-contaminated soil. The first concerns projects comprising between 25 and 50 subsidised residential units, the second projects from 51 to 100 subsidised residiential units and the third, those of more than 100 subsidised residential units.
For this 5th edition, two projects have been selected in two separate categories and the third category is currently being studied.
The first project, Victor, developed by the promoter IMMOANGE (a partnership between ATENOR and BPI Real Estate Belgium) and the architectural firms 51N4E and Jaspers-Eyers Architects, is located near Brussels South railway station, at the heart of the future “Midi” Master Plan (PAD). This project offers an interesting functional mix, in line with the "Living Station" master plan. It consists of 102 contracted and 32 vacant units, retail and service areas grouped together in a covered shopping gallery, multipurpose areas and a co-working area. A set of offices of approximately 72,000 m² completes the balance of the mixed project. It also offers a landscaped area of 2,900 m², consisting of a communal garden and a variety of areas: vegetable patch, children's games, walkways and garden/terraces.
The second project, GreenWood, is developed by EIFFAGE DEVELOPMENT SA and the architectural firms CERAU SRL and DXA.ARCHI SRL, and will offer 39 subsidised residential units and 15 vacant dwellings, sharing the same communal areas to ensure a coherent social mix. Particular attention has been paid to the landscaped area which will have a communal planted area, a vegetable patch and private terraces separated by metal trellis fences filled with wood shavings, which will give a high level of privacy to the residential units on the ground floor.
The citydev.brussels call for projects policy has borne fruit since 2014. These public-private partnerships have led to the development of projects such as City Dox in Anderlecht, Nautica and M-Square in Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, accounting for a total of 187 subsidised apartments. For the Brussels institution, it is an additional development tool to meet needs in terms of affordable and quality housing and thus achieve the objectives set by the regional government in its management contract.
“One of the priorities of my government is to create housing in quality and mixed living spaces. The citydev.brussels call for projects is a good example of a concrete tool for achieving this objective quickly and in partnership with the private real estate sector. It makes it possible to offer new quality housing in rapidly developing districts at affordable prices,” explains Rudi Vervoort, Minister-President of the Brussels-Capital Region.
