Vision on the elderly homes needed to cope with the rapid ageing of the population
The expected growth of the older adult population will have an unprecedented impact on the national health care system. There is a clear need for additional nursing homes and healthcare workers, to avoid potential shortages in the coming years. Like most other European countries, Belgium is confronted with a rapid ageing of its population. This is the direct result of longer life expectancy and continuous improvement in living standards.

Good governance in the public sector extends to the private domain
It is now around ten years ago that Anixton, through its founder and Managing Director Vincent Gérin, started providing the service known as ‘Tenant Representation’ (Rep for short). In this article, Vincent Gérin talks of the philosophy behind the move, and cites a number of concrete cases. He also talks of the trends in the real estate sector, in terms of selecting a new building, which he describes as ‘being part of the company’s marketing’. Allied to all this is the issue of sustainability, passive buildings, and of all the different criteria which play a part in the final choice.

Office conversion continues unabated
The trend of office space conversion to alternative uses is still strong, with another 92,000 m² of office space being reconverted in 2015. Particularly in Brussels, which has the most substantial office stock in the country at 12.7 million m². Typically, older, out-dated office properties abutting residential districts have been redeveloped over the last decade, though office space in traditional business districts has also garnered interest. According to Michael Niego, Director Capital Markets at CBRE, the motivation for the conversion of office space has been a colliding trend of economic factors.

European district and PUL on the move
There are changes in the way the Brussels Capital Region is going to manage the European District. A new position of Commissioner has been created, and in January, Alain Hutchinson began work in the role. One of the best known personalities on the Brussels real estate landscape – Marie-Laure Roggemans or ‘Madame Europe’ – is to leave her post in July (although she will remain as President of the Historical Sites and Monuments Commission). We asked both of them to explain the change, and to give the latest evolutions on the ‘Projet Urbain Loi’ (PUL) and the European District in general.

The Brussels office market is returning to good health
Was 2014 the year of recovery? The figures clearly seem to indicate this, both in terms of take-up and of investment. By contrast with 2013, the public sector was particularly active in 2014. It generated almost 50% of the total take-up of around 460,000 m², an increase of close to 39% compared to the previous year.

Visionary, outside-the-box thinking
The 60,250 seats national stadium that is soon to arise on the Heizel grounds is unquestionably a new milestone with an iconic impact for real estate developer Ghelamco.
