The Esplanade (Louvain-la-Neuve)


Project Manager for S.A. Wilhem & Co


“Being part of the development of a new town gives a real sense of satisfaction that comes from accomplishing the true work of a builder. It is an intense and creative process, which will benefit many future generations”

After being stalled in its development since 1972, Louvain-la-Neuve has been boosted by the creation of the Esplanade. With its analytical capacity and strength of conviction, SPECI was able to generate the synergy required to bring such a huge project to completion, backed by Wilhelm & Co.

Over and above its technical and town-planning successes, this visionary project has greatly contributed to commerce (56,000 m2 GLA), residential space (240 apartments) and job creation (850 new jobs). It has also resulted in the construction of a new 13-screen multiplex cinema, 2,800 parking spaces and new pedestrian and road infrastructures.
