antwerp antwerp tower

The redevelopment of the former office tower of Antwerp Tower, is a top-class urban reconversion project. Matexi combines years of expertise and know-how with the insights and inspiration of internationally renowned architect Wiel Arets. A vision that was translated into a metropolitan residential tower in collaboration with the city of Antwerp. A total of 240 apartments and penthouses will be built. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer an enormous feeling of space. The residents have an unobstructed view of the skyline of the city.

In the base of the building there is room for retail, offices, catering and parking. In this way, Matexi puts the "Opera" district back on the map.

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.

Matexi encourages neighbourhoods where we can simultaneously live, shop, work, go to school and relax. So we reduce the use of autos and a neighbourhood remains alive long after school is over and offices have closed. Inner-city core reinforcement with sufficient neighbourhood amenities encourages not only the neighbourhood experience, it also brings the people who live there closer to one another.

We don´t let purchased buildings and/or grounds lie fallow while awaiting further development. On the contrary, we do everything we can to make them useful and to enable nearby residents to become familiar with the site. Neighbourhood-reinforcing initiatives such as a wide range of association activities, a social café, a cycling area, a pop-up store, a cultural centre, a hairdresser, … Many possibilities, no obligations.
