On Wednesday 26 April 2017, before the gathered press, the city council and all project partners, project developers ION, Steenoven and Alheembouw revealed their ambitious property project set to reshape Waregem’s skyline with an iconic landmark. Along the Waregem-Zuid inner city ring road, on several lots surrounding the Regenboogstadion, they plan to build two 13-storey residential towers, a hotel with 60 rooms, an office and retail building, and a separate parking tower. The project will be an attractive mix of living, working, hospitality and recreation, with a master plan based on a unique architectural vision where quality, liveability, sustainability and mobility are at the forefront. The shape of the buildings – or rather, a pavilion of shapes – is conceived so that there are no front or rear façades, making everything come together in one architectural entity. At the same time, this project fits perfectly into the DNA of this site adjacent to the open green space of the Gaverbeek valley, the Regenboogstadion, various sports parks and Waregem Expo.
Pictured next to the scale model are mayor Kurt Van Ryckeghem and project initiators Davy Demuynck (ION) and Bart Vanderdonckt (Steenoven/Alheembouw).
