KCAP presents design for NEO Brussels

KCAP Architects&Planners present today their vision for NEO Brussels, the redevelopment of the Heysel plateau,  to the political arena, the press and the public. The team, KCAP working together with advisors Arup and Fakton, won the international design competition in September 2010. The area is one of the most strategic locations in the Brussels Metropole Region. The design for NEO Brussels aims to strengthen the significance of the Heysel, and to qualify it within a framework for sustainable development.

The site, approximately 68 acres in size, will develop into a mixed urban program, including an international conference center, a regional shopping center, a museum, leisure functions, housing and a park. With an investment of 900 million Euros, it is Belgium's largest mixed urban redevelopment.

The masterplan allows for the phasing of built program, public space and infrastructure. Phase 1 is  expected to start from 2014 with the construction of the retail centre. The completion of the entire plan is expected  around 2025.
