In the heart of Kortrijk

Plein Publiek is located on the corner of Doorniksewijk and Boerderijstraat, making it a perfect gateway to Kortrijk's historic city centre. Everything you need is within walking distance, from the local bakery, butcher, fishmonger, and deli to the local supermarket. For food and drinks, residents have access to such popular hotspots as Balthazar, Nude, Table d'Amis, and Social Lab. If you want a fun night out, plenty of cinemas and concert halls are within easy reach. And if retail therapy is your passion, you can be in the car-free shopping streets of Kortrijk in no time at all.

A new streetscape for Doorniksewijk

The development of Plein Publiek in the centre of Kortrijk will provide a new home for residents and breathe new life into the historic Sint-Rochus Church. At present, the church is somewhat hidden in the busy cityscape. Still, once the works are completed, it will become a prominent feature of Doorniksewijk again.
With its rich architectural history and significance to the local community, Sint-Rochus will play a prominent and iconic role in the renovated Plein Publiek. Each flat has a beautiful view of the new town square and this historic church, ensuring Sint-Rochus will again become the focal point of the Doorniksewijk neighbourhood and Plein Publiek.

Plein Publiek numbers

  • 54 student rooms
  • 52 flats
  • 4 retail units

Different housing types

The project's six buildings each have their own distinct architectural features, layout, and identity. As such, Plein Publiek responds to the demand for various housing types in Kortrijk, from starter homes and luxury flats to investment properties. Together, they form an 'L' around Sint-Rochus, a church that was repurposed as an arts centre in 2022. As a result, each flat enjoys a beautiful view of the new town square, the city of Kortrijk and the church.

Two unique, luxurious buildings transforming the streetscape of the access road to and from Kortrijk. Where living in the centre of Kortrijk is synonymous with luxury, space, and craftsmanship. The exclusive flats have been meticulously designed by renowned CAAN Architecten, using high-end materials and cutting-edge technology.

The demand for student rooms in Kortrijk is growing steadily due to the rising number of students living in student accommodation. Given that Kortrijk has just 4,222 official student rooms, new student accommodation is clearly a necessity. ION is responding to this demand, offering attractive investment opportunities in Kortrijk. KOTT, close to several higher education institutions in Kortrijk, will soon be home to 54 students.

The location is second to none, with campuses, shops, restaurants, sports facilities, and the city centre within walking and cycling distance, making KOTT an ideal place for students to live and enjoy city life.


The KOMFORT flats combine a strategic location, attractive architecture and high-end living comfort, all at affordable prices. Moreover, the shared courtyard garden and roof terrace offer additional benefits. KOMFORT is a secure property investment in the centre of Kortrijk, with 11 functional flats that exude craftsmanship and quality in every detail, with no unexpected costs, ensuring a hassle-free start for investors and residents with quality flats.

KNUSS offers cosy and convenient living in Kortrijk, blending city life with greenery.

The building has 23 flats, including:

  • 12 corner flats, with 1 or 2 bedrooms
  • 3 spacious 3-bedroom flats with sunlight from both sides
  • 6 city flats with 2 bedrooms
  • 2 penthouses with 3 bedrooms

KARAKTR is all about authenticity. The unique façade of the existing interwar houses has been preserved, and this authenticity also extends to the interior.

KARAKTR stands out because of its atypical layout, with two duplex flats with living space on the first floor and only four homes available, making this project extraordinary. The building has a distinctive personality thanks to the authentic look and feel of the existing façades.

A heart for Kortrijk and the planet

Each flat is equipped with geothermal heat pumps, heating and cooling your home in an environmentally friendly way. Moreover, solar panels will be installed on the roofs of the buildings, generating renewable electricity. Thanks to rainwater harvesting, the use of city water is significantly reduced. The project strives for a sustainable future by investing in green energy and smart water management.
