Aalst Pier Kornel 

On the old Tupperware site in the heart of Aalst, on the river Dender, we are developing, together with Revive, a new city district with family houses, apartments and assistance homes, supplemented with gardens, shops, community facilities and a brasserie.

I cancelled my subscription to the newspaper; I prefer to go to the shop around the corner every day. I love it!

´Brownfield´ is a term used for grounds that - due to the presence of soil pollution - are no longer suitable for use. Such industrial grounds often enjoy a good location, close to the urban centre. We clean them up, integrate them into the urban fabric and redevelop them into lively new residential neighbourhoods.

For over 20 years now Matexi has focused on inner-city reconversion projects, redevelopment of both historical heritage buildings and former industrial sites and vacant, obsolete buildings. These transformation projects fit perfectly with today´s emphasis on dealing carefully with the available space.

We strive for a sustainable future. To succeed in this we work from a long-term vision. We proceed from planet, people, profit: we start out from a duty to care for both the world (planet) and society (people). Profit is a result and a means, never an end in itself - although it is necessary so as to be able to continue practicing our profession.
