29.09.2020Hertogensite residences receive planning permission

The City of Leuven has granted planning permission for a new residential development to be built on the fringes of the medieval core of the Belgian city. The project forms part of a masterplan for the redevelopment of a former hospital campus and comprises a 14-storey tower connected to nine townhouses and a four-storey apartment building. The scheme unifies these three distinct typologies into one through a coherent architectural language defined by the size of a living unit and the consistent use of grey-coloured brick cladding. Work is expected to start on the project later this year with completion due in autumn 2022.
