Les Papeteries de Genval:
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.
Phase 1 opened in 2015
End of works phase 3 in 2020
