Immobel launches Nivelles 'Ilot Saint Roch' residential project

Tim Harrup

Construction started yesterday on Immobel’s latest large-scale residential project to revitalise a city centre sites, rehabilitating a 3 hectares wasteland zone within the commune of Nivelles. This project is also designed to give fresh impetus to the town centre and the businesses in Nivelles. The project is part of a forward-looking approach, Immobel asserts, including places of exchange with, for instance, an urban vegetable garden, a park, and a playground.

The project is the result of collaboration between Immobel and the City of Nivelles, which was able to contribute significantly throughout the development of the project, thereby ensuring the coherence between the Îlot Saint-Roch and the City of Nivelles’ vision of far-reaching urban development.

Following this start of works, Immobel has said it will start the marketing of the Ilot St. Roch project from mid April. The total surface area of the residential project to be built will extend to around 31,500 m². This will comprise 291 homes (25% studios and 1-bedroom apartments 60% 2-bedroom, 15% 3-bedroom). There will also be an urban vegetable garden, park, playground, shops, a creche and public parking.
