Redevelopment of a former industrial site into a residential complex. This is not only a matter of developing the former sugar factory building and restoring a part of the area to public use (residential units, crèches, lofts, etc.) but also constructing some 20,000 m2 of new residential units.
The project comprises:
- The construction of new apartment buildings for a total surface area of around 20,000 m2, composed of single family buildings, 2-family buildings, a retirement home with residential services, a crèche, a local administration building, a convenience store, allotments and a communal orchard.
- The construction of a new pedestrian footbridge will provide a safe access across the canal to the railway station and town centre.
The objective of this project is to return the canal banks for use by pedestrians and cyclists.
