Rijmenam Dijledonk, living in a vibrant rural area
The Meurop site has been left empty for quite some time but this iconic location remains closely associated with a wonderful living style. The former industrial activities have left their marks in the soil and some spots are in need of a thorough remediation. We develop this complex in a partnership with COGIVA and in close consultation with all stakeholders (local residents, public authorities). We also pay special attention to the integration of the existing industrial heritage.
Key figures masterplan Dijledonk
The affordable design furniture of Meurop put Rijmenam on the map in the 1950s and 60s.
This factory introduced a new living style to the whole country, long before IKEA and many others came up with the same idea.
Living in a vibrant rural area
Alongside the meandering Dijle, a vibrant residential area awakens.
At this location with a rich history, a former furniture factory makes way for a warm home. The location offers green spots and water and – more important still – space to live life to the fullest, at your own pace. Rippling or flowing? Just drifting with the flow or really diving into it? Living, working and relaxing in the Dijle valley brings something to look forward to every day. Share it with each other, your family, your colleagues and the neighbours. No matter how far your dreams reach, here you have everything at your fingertips.
In 2020, Imaginair will come to Dijledonk awaiting the final development.
Imaginair will set up temporary activities based on the pillars of Dijledonk: living – working – enjoyment – motion. Imaginair stands for creative entrepreneurship. It will fill the former furniture factory with new life. Think of expositions, design, co-working and workshops. Imagine film and photo shoots.
