For this project, ION, Steenoven and Alheembouw are aiming for ecological, qualitative and sustainable living all the way. For example, all apartments will be equipped with a centralised boiler room that will provide all residents with hot water, heating and cooling. The project will be equipped with the most efficient technologies, including a heat pump with boreholes, a cogeneration unit and solar panels.
The result is highly efficient energy generation, which is set to lower the building’s CO2 emissions by 35%. This is not only beneficial for the environment, but also for the owners and residents, who are guaranteed to pay the lowest energy price.
Waterfront' is a mixed-use project where living, working, accommodation and leisure come together. The first phase consists of an office complex on the corner of Zuiderlaan and Meersstraat, half of which has meanwhile been sold. The second phase of the ‘Waterfront’ project consists of the construction of two residential towers and a hotel. The construction of the towers will start in the spring. The first residents are expected in 2022. There will also be space on the site for a hotel, namely Parkhotel, which will expand its network with this 72-room branch in Waregem. It is expected to open its doors in 2021.
