Cores brings new office concept to Antwerp

The new mode of multi-functional office developments is also being seen in Antwerp. Developer Cores has designed a project located on the Mechelsesteenweg, close to the Harmoniepark and the city center. Under the name of c-hive, Cores describes this as the ultimate office experience in the heart of Antwerp.

They go on to say that c-hive is a state-of-the-art office building of 4,800 m² making offices available to rent across 8 flexible office floors and 1 ground floor (for office or retail purposes). There is also a gym in the building and a trendy rooftop bar with breakfast and lunch options.

With the introduction of c-hive, Cores Development says it is extending the ‘Living Apart Together’ concept from the residential market to the office market. The c-hive concept shows essential differences with the current co-working offer and the introduction of anonymous flex desks in larger companies, preferring a collective identity to anonymity and investing in high-quality design. There is also a good dose of pragmatism with: ‘the office building focuses on image because companies simply attach importance to first impressions’.

Visitors are professionally received via a digital access control. The entrance hall is designed to be an example of timeless class thanks to the use of warm materials with an eye for detail. The one-to-one meeting rooms and the coffee corner, for their part, form a harmonious whole with the interior. The building also features one of the recent additions to ‘smart’ buildings, stylish lockers which are accessed via an app.

The developers summarise the major advantages of c-hive as being its flexible office floors, a rooftop bar with sun terrace, state of the art entrance hall and concierge services available on the work floors. There is also a fitness centre and an underground car park.
