Nextensa acquired the office located at 24 rue Montoyer in Brussels from Fedustria. The office building is located in one of the most sought-after office locations within the Leopold district, just a few metres from the Monteco building, which was completed at the end of 2022.
The outdated building is currently leased to several European associations. Nextensa plans to develop a sustainable and high-quality c. 3,000m² office building on this site. The plot also contains an underground car park and a c. 200m² garden, which will be integrated into the new development as an additional asset. The permit application is in preparation.
ARCHi2000 was chosen to design a CO2-neutral office building in wood, inspired by the design of the nearby Monteco. Particular attention will be paid to the sustainability of the new office building. Through the use of energy-efficient systems, preservation and reuse of part of the existing structure and a new wooden structure, the building aims to achieve 'BREEAM excellent' certification upon completion of the works, thus contributing to the further sustainability of Nextensa's investment portfolio.
"We are pleased to announce that Nextensa is further expanding its investment portfolio in Belgium by investing in Brussels' Leopold Quarter, the top office location in Belgium. Nextensa will reuse its expertise in wooden constructions in the Leopold Quarter to pursue a second Monteco building, which has proven its success." Michel Van Geyte, CEO Nextensa
