After remaining fallow for 25 years, in the district of Overseas Meuse, the district of Bavaria is in the process of being rehabilitated by the developer BPI Real estate. The site will accommodate housing and public infrastructure including a school. The Guillemins station district continues to evolve. As an extension of the Finance Tower towards the station, Besix is continuing the construction of the ‘Paradis‘ Express ’ project designed by Jaspers-Eyers for the developer Befimmo: 21,000 m2 of housing, offices and shops emerge from the ground.

The Val Benoît site, where the campus for Applied Sciences of the University of Liège lived before its migration to Sart Tilman, is continuing its conversion.
