London, Paris, Prague... living by the water is hip. The quays that used to be bustling with raw loading and unloading activity are changing into trendy neighbourhoods that tingle with the good life. This is also the case in Hasselt. Capital of taste, city of happiness, fourth largest shopping city in Belgium... and soon also trendy 'City at the Port': Hasselt will be given an additional landmark with Quartier Bleu.

Meet Anouk, at the age of early 20s, single and future resident of the CityGarden residence. After her student days at the UHasselt, she couldn't think of a city she thought would be more fun to live in than Hasselt, and no project was more vibrant than Quartier Bleu.

I couldn't think of a better city to live in, and no better location than that of Quartier Bleu.

´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.

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.
