Award for Tivoli



Tivoli GreenCity, the citydev project at Laeken, has won the ‘Sustainable Building Award’ within the framework of the Brussels Capital Region’s Energy & Environment awards. These are designed to recognise owners, developers, architects and contractors who create sustainability in buildings of all types. The criteria include location, design and materials which reduce the environmental impact of these buildings.
Tivoli GreenCity is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year and comprises 397 residential units, of which 271 are subsidised, and 126 are social units. There are also2 crèches with a total capacity of 124 children, and 770 m² of retail space. Public areas, new roadways, a xcity square and a 1,00 m² mall will also be built.
This project can be seen from a wider perspective, as playing its part in achieving the Region’s desire to bring life back to the canal zone, and to this part of it in particular. It is just a couple of hundred metres from Tour & Taxis on the same bank, and opposite Upsite on the other bank. The ‘Rives’ development is set to appear alongside Upsite, and the new tram/pedestrian bridge will link the two sides of the canal.
