Ternat, 9 May 2017 – On Tuesday afternoon, in the presence of mayor Luc Wachtelaar, Redevco, the pan-European retail real estate specialist, has revealed the name, logo and website of its future retail park in Ternat. The retail park is to be named ‘The Leaf’ with a green leaf representing the logo. The name refers to the green nature of the redevelopment project.
Filip de Bois, Portfolio Director at Redevco Belgium points out what the objective is of the project: “We aim to make The Leaf Shopping Park at Ternat into a new and enjoyable location where the whole family enjoys shopping and where it is fun to spend a whole day.”
The Leaf is located on Morettestraat near the E40 exit, where Brico Plan-it currently has its premises. The redevelopment includes a new shop for Brico Plan-it, 12 additional medium-sized units and a res-taurant with a total gross sales area of 28,000 m² and more than 900 parking spaces. The building works started at the end of March and the opening is scheduled for the autumn of 2018. Brico Plan-it will remain open during the construction works.
The project aims to foster sustainability and aspires to obtain a BREEAM Excellent rating. The sustainable materials will be selected according to the Cradle-to-Cradle® principle. The space alongside cycle and footpaths will be enhanced through green roofs and large areas with local vegetation. At the entrance of the site there will be a public park.
The progress of The Leaf can be followed on: www.theleaf.be. On this website the future retail park can also be explored in virtual reality.
