The Link: a new concept on the southern edge of Antwerp

One of the forthcoming projects in Antwerp is Ghelamco’s ‘The Link’. The developer describes this as a whole new living and working environment. The Link, it says, will be sustainable, easily accessible, energy-efficient, comfortable, open, iconic… a new district of Antwerp.

The Link is located close to Berchem station in Antwerp, and is conceived to be what Ghelamco calls a prototype of the office building of the future. It has its own Office App, which means that all services can be accessed simply by touching the screen on your smartphone, from ordering a takeaway or the dish of the day, booking a car wash to reserving one of the free bikes that you can use for getting around the city. The Office-App also offers the possibility to reserve facilities such as meeting rooms, parking spaces for customers, etc.

With its BREEAM Excellent certification, The Link is also designed to significantly improve the productivity, concentration, ability to think and health of everyone that works there. In terms of the working environment there will be a combination of acoustic and thermal comfort, along with an abundance of natural daylight, as well as sophisticated construction methods and an inspiring design. The two buildings are also Near Energy-Neutral.

The Link is located close to an intersection of several motorways (the E17, E19 and E313) and has an underground car park with space for over 500 cars. With 1 parking space for every 45 square meters of office space, Ghelamco claims that The Link has the best parking ratio in the region. With its easy access to public transport, free LINK bicycles, secure covered bike storage, showers and lockers for anyone who cycles to work, the project also provides various alternative mobility solutions for employees. And at least 16 recharging units for electric cars will be provided at the site.
