New business centre for Liège Airport

Liège Airport is continuing with its development, and has just announced the development of a 50,000 m² business centre. This is to be constructed just in front of the passenger terminal along the E42 motorway.

There is already some 30,000 m² of warehousing and 15,000 m² of office space (Liège Airport Business Park), but this is all occupied. In view of the airport’s status as one of the busiest cargo terminals in Europe, it was therefore decided to increase the amount of space on offer. The new centre will be developed in phases, and will comprise eight H-shaped modules with a glazed central atrium, and built on pillars. Quoted by newspaper L’Echo, Liège Business Park Board President Gaëtan Servais says: “We didn’t wish to rush into things or allow the anarchic development of development projects, as is often the case around airports. We wished to plan this coherently over the next 25 years, taking account of all users, of their movements and of complementary economic activities on the site. We have always been in contact with the Walloon public authorities, and we have submitted our masterplan to them. They unanimously gave it their go-ahead before we launched the calls for tender in January”.

The winning consortium has just been named as that led by architect Philippe Valentiny. A permit request is set to be lodged imminently, with the desire to start the first phase of construction in 2019.
