The Leaf project is our most sustainable development and received a BREEAM Excellent rating. The sustainable materials were selected according to Cradle-to-Cradle®principle. The space alongside cycle and footpaths was enhanced through green roofs, which covers over 50% of the total roof surface and large areas with local vegetation.

At the entrance of the site, a public park was created with more than 900 park spaces. In de middle of the parking you find an e-Tree, a ‘solar panel tree’ where solar power is generated. More information is available at www.theleaf.be, featuring a virtual reality experience of the retail park.
