On Wednesday 9 July, the Ikea project in Mons was officially presented at the Town Hall. This retail park will be developed on the site of the “Grands Prés” with a surface area of nearly 35,000m², of which 26,000m² will be for retail. Work is due to begin at the “Grands Prés” in autumn of 2014, and the Swedish store is set to open its doors at the end of 2015.

The ConnectImmo – Belgacom Group’s “Lebeau Sablon” site has been acquired by the property developer Allfin, working closely with ASSAR ARCHITECTS.

The Lebeau Sablon project on the Place de la Justice benefits from an exceptional location in the Belgian capital and is about 35.000 m². High-quality improvement and revitalisation of the site were essential. The collaboration between ASSAR ARCHITECTS and Allfin quickly focused on maintaining the existing load-bearing structure and building outline in order to create an urban project fully integrated into its environment and socio-demographic and cultural fabric.

Assar is working with Thomas & Piron and AG Real Estate to develop plot 120 Anfa El Beida on the site of the former Casablanca airport. Assar has designed a high quality architectural project in keeping with the environment and providing a complex of almost 250 new homes and shops.

The new prison at Leuze-en-Hainaut was inaugurated on 20 May in the presence of 500 guests.

Two major challenges guided the design of this project for a new residential nursing and care home providing accommodation for 130 residents:

- Firstly: To design a building meeting zero energy standards, which was a first in 2009.

Work on the extension of the functional rehabilitation centre at the Léonard de Vinci hospital was completed in April this year.

The first stone of the future Chirec Delta hospital at Auderghem was laid on 25 March this year.  The idea behind the project is to bring the various Brussels Cavell and Parc Léopold hospital sites together on a single site. It will provide at least 550 beds in an ideal location.

On the next 3rd and 4th of April the professional show of healthcare will take place in Namur Expo. This exhibition will gather up the equipment, the solution and the innovation in the sector of the healthcare. The main goal is also to make the professional meeting easier.

This housing project, which began in 2005 with the construction of 5 houses, is continuing in successive phases. A block of 33 apartments on the Boulevard du Souverain in Auderghem has just been completed, forming a whole with 4 other apartment blocks and 21 individual houses rooted within the Promenade Verte.
