Transformation of a nursing home into a student housing complex of 118 units
The building is situated in Brussels (Etterbeek). It’s location close to the university campuses of ULB, VUB and several university colleges as well as shops, sports centres and public transport is a large advantage for the resident students.
The modulation of the concrete structure of the existing building of 3.500 sqm was perfect for a transformation into student housing. Several amenities are offered to the residents, including a fitness area, a leisure and co-working area, a laundry service, a garden, a caretaker and student coaching service. Special attention was paid to soft mobility by integrating a considerable number of bike sheds for the residents.
Works started in September 2017 and ended a year later in September 2018.
At the end of 2018, the company holding this asset was sold to Xior Student Housing, the Belgian listed real estate investment trust (BE-REIT) specialised in student housing.
