Redevco kicks off redevelopment in Schoten
August 29, 2022
Schoten, 29 August 2022 – Redevco, one of Europe’s largest private real estate players has started the first phase in the redevelopment of the commercial complex at Bredabaan in Schoten (Antwerp). The former Brico will be demolished to create space for three new units, leased to Goossens furniture store (2,190 m²) and Exterioo garden furniture (1,957 m²). For the third unit (868 m²), negotiations are already well underway with a potential candidate.
The completion and delivery of the three new units is expected end of February 2023, after which the new retailers can start fitting out the store. Permit requests have been submitted for the subsequent phases in the redevelopment.
Filip de Bois, Portfolio Director at Redevco Belgium: “At Redevco, we want to contribute to making urban areas more sustainable and liveable. Such areas evolve rapidly and we wish to team up with local authorities in responding to social changes. The complex in Schoten is an attractive location with great potential in line with our long-term vision.”
The intention is to thoroughly renovate the entire shopping complex in phases to make it more sustainable. The buildings are being made (more) energy efficient in order to drastically reduce their CO2 emissions. Solar panels are being installed on the shops as part of Redevco’s Solar Project (which aims to provide power that is generated locally). The car park is being redesigned with additional charging stations and also the entrance and the exit ways will be optimized. All stores will remain accessible during the works.
This retail park has an excellent location along Bredabaan on the border of Schoten-Merksem (Antwerp) and covers approximately 30,000 m² GLA, featuring Carrefour Hypermarkt, Inno and Lunch Garden as anchor tenants.
