The 104,525 square-metre Corporate Village is exemplary when it comes to brownfield regeneration and is the first integrated mixed-use ensemble comprising a high-end business park, a luxury hotel as well as retail and services within a vast 3.5-hectare landscaped park equipped with a pond, walking promenades and bridges. With building units up to 12 storeys, the Corporate Village is also the first project to break the historic low-rise height limits in airport surroundings and is actually still the tallest and largest project in the area. The Corporate Village is comprised of one five-storey service building, six office buildings ranging from 7- to 12 storeys and a 315-room hotel.The project masterplan subtly located all the individual buildings at the periphery of the site in order to both allow for the creation of a larger landscaped park and at the same time the buildings create an efficient sound barrier
Each of the office building providing from 8,561- to 18,568 square metres of state-of-the-art office space can accessed via a private driveway up to the entrance lobby while 1,535 parking spaces are provided in the underground garage of which in/out ramps are located along the external perimeter of the project. The Corporate Village is the Belgian headquarters for a series of companies which include among others Atos Origin, BDO, Microsoft, Sony or St Jude Medical to name a few.Eventually, the 20,275 square-metre Crowne Plaza Brussels Airport with its naturally lit streamlined 7-storey soaring atrium comprising a series of restaurants, bars and meeting rooms has become the meeting point in the airport business district for both international and local visitors.
