Redevco Belgium is to start construction work on the 30,793-m² retail park on Bergensesteenweg in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, the site of a former Carrefour hypermarket. The complex is owned by Redevco and is one of the most important peripheral retail parks in Belgium, located less than 1 km from the Brussels ring road.
Brico will remain open during renovation work in a temporary store, but its current store will be demolished and a new Brico built as part of the scheme. The existing MediaMarkt store, McDonald's and Auto 5 will also remain open during construction. The complex will be anchored by a Delhaize supermarket covering 4,500 m².
Final environmental, socioeconomic and building permits have all been obtained.
The retail park will be given a completely new look, to a design by Architeam. Cushman & Wakefield acted as sole letting agents.
The total investment of the construction will be around 22 million, majorated with the investments made by the retailers. After the redevelopment, 310 jobs will be guaranteed.
Construction work will start at the beginning of 2012, with the site scheduled to reopen in autumn 2013.
