Serenity Valley' and 'Pure' for more residential accommodation in Auderghem

Some of the news concerning new developments has been somewhat obscured by the lack of activity caused by coronavirus. However, projects are continuing, and with residential accommodation still very much needed, it is interesting to note two projects in the Brussels commune of Auderghem, to be undertaken by developers BPI Real Estate with architects Archi 2000.

Firstly, Serenity Valley (previously named Serenitas) will be a mixed development of apartments and offices. Located on the Avenue Van Nieuwenhuyse, this project involves the redevelopment of a business complex. It will extend to 21,000 m², two thirds of which will be residential, and one third offices – these being housed in a sustainable building. The residential part will total 14,000 m² and comprise 144 apartments across two buildings of three to five storeys and made up of studios and one to three bedroom apartments. There will be a public area, spacious terraces and a vast esplanade. A common area is also scheduled for use by residents. The location alongside Demey metro station will ensure easy access to the city centre and beyond. On the technological side, a smart parcel reception unit will be provided.
Where the office building is concerned an (unnamed) acquiring party has been found, and the building is expected to be granted BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ certification. This is partly due to there being a high proportion of wood used, with specialist company Wood Shapers involved in the design and construction. Some 500 solar panels will also play a role, making the office building energy positive.

'Pure', for its part, will offer high class apartments and office space for independent professionals. The project has views over the Parc Seny, and is thus located close to the Boulevard du Souverain and Chaussée de Wavre / E 411. It involves the redevelopment of an existing office complex, which is to be demolished and replaced by two residential buildings. These will accommodate a total of 26 apartments and penthouses of two and three bedrooms. The buildings will be ‘smart’ and extend to a total of 4,800 m².

Building permit requests have been lodged in February for both of these projects, and the planned schedule will see marketing start at the end of this year, and works start during next year.
