It is not just in Brussels that new city districts are being created. Just such a project has been announced for Jambes, alongside Namur, by Thomas & Piron Bâtiment working with architects Atelier de l’Arbre d’Or and Assar. Described as an ‘inhabited park’ the desire is to design this new district, named 'Parc d'Enhaive', so that it fits into the existing environment without in any way altering its characteristics. The project has just been presented for public enquiry.

This 80 million Euro project will see the emergence of no fewer than 350 residential units spread across 11 buildings located on a 4 hectare site on the Rue d’Enhaive and bordered by the Avenue Prince de Liège and Avenue du Luxembourg (N4), The buildings themselves will be of different heights up to 7 storeys opposite the Carrefour supermarket and set within a landscaped park. Local shops and a new school are also part of the project. The school will in particular be very welcome as the existing Basse Enhaive school has now been declared insalubrious and is set for demolition.

Soft mobility is a priority for the developers and architects, and care is being taken not to bring any mobility problems to the district through the creation of the new housing. Above and below ground car parking is scheduled along existing thoroughfares. Cars will not be authorized within the new residential district, where cycle and residential paths will be the order of the day.
