Luik Rives Ardentes
Innovative eco neighbourhood for living, working and relaxing
The city of Liege awarded the challenging redevelopment of the Coronmeuse district to the consortium NEOLEGIA (Jan De Nul Group, CIT Blaton and Willemen Groep). This large-scale public-private partnership aims to develop an eco-friendly residential area on the site where the World Exhibition took place in 1939.
Sustainable and soft mobility and innovative techniques such as the installation of a municipal heat network are key aspects of the urban renovation project 'Rives Ardentes'. It is a mixed project with 1,325 low-energy and passive residential units in various typologies as well as space for offices, catering, retail, service flats and many other supporting facilities. As much as 83% of the total project area is reserved for green and open space (public parks, gardens, water).
Vivre la nature de Liège - Living the nature of Liège
The dilapidated peninsula will be connected to the wider environment through the construction of a new tram line, a marina and several bicycle and pedestrian bridges. Historic buildings such as the former ice rink 'Equerre' and 'Le Grand Palais' will be renovated for new purposes.
