The ZIN project is the first hybrid architecture that will add a new dimension to the business district of the Northern Quarter! The mixed-use complex of residential and offices will provide also leisure, sport, hospitality and retail facilities. One of the major occupants will be the Flemish Government, taking up 70.000 m² of the office space and moving in by 2023. The seamless integration of the project into its surrounding creates a feeling of openness, enhanced by a large public orangery.
ZIN will bring life into this part of the city and will stimulate interaction seven days a week. Thanks to the use of latest technologies, almost zero-energy performance will be achieved. Finally, by aiming for the highest standards in sustainability and circularity, “Design for change” has set adaptability over time as one of the main goals – it will provide flexibility in use and functions while offering a valuable and open perspective towards future.
