The be-MINE project concerns the urban development of a former colliery. Containing 100.000 m² of existing floor surface, it is by far the biggest concentration of industrial heritage in Flanders. The site is characterised by its monumental and majestic buildings, constituting the distinctive factors of the be-MINE project. With 300 jobs realised, the 40 hectares are currently being reconnected to the urban network through a balanced mix of residential (50.000 m²), retail (18.000 m²) and multiday all-weather leisure developments (50.000 m² of diving and climbing centre, recreational pool, heritage experience tour, play landscape, MTB trail, tourist office, landscape park), all located in and around the industrial buildings.
