Eaglestone acquires 'Les Jardins de l'Orne'

The former paper mills at Mont-St.-Guibert have gradually been transformed into a vast mixed use project since 2011, named ‘Les Jardins de l’Orne’. This project extends to some 9 hectares and will eventually see 300 houses and apartments, a crèche, retail units and office space.

Brussels-based developer Eaglestone has now become a major player in this project, by acquiring from project owner Ginko, the company set up to develop the complex. Eaglestone will thus now take care of the sixth and final phase of Les Jardins de l’Orne, which comprises 114 residential units and retail area, amounting to a total of 11,150 m² over 7 buildings of 3 to 4 upper storeys.

Eaglestone has named its part of the project ‘L’Orne by Eaglestone and intends to ensure that the constructions follow the same lines as others it has developed. The residential units will range from studio apartment to 3-bedroom apartment, with surface areas of 40 to 126 m². Each apartment will have a terrace, balcony or private garden. Marketing is scheduled to begin later this month. Eaglestone founder and CEO Nicolas Orts explains that the philosophy is to bring a different type of housing to the Brabant Wallon region, which has always tended to favour stand-alone houses.

In terms of location, this new district is close to Louvain-la-Neuve with its railway station, shops (including l’Esplanade shopping centre) and cultural facilities. Within the whole of the site, soft mobility and a profusion of green areas are designed to be as eco-friendly as possible.
