Belval Plaza redevelopment
The Belval redevelopment area is located south of Luxembourg City. The area was formerly occupied by Arbed, the Luxemburg steel company. Agora, a joint venture between the local municipality Esch-sur-Alzette and Arbed, was responsible for the urban redevelopment of the site. Their ambitious plan included preserving the industrial heritage while simultaneously constructing a substantial number of new buildings and infrastructure.
The redevelopment plan included retail space, offices and residential areas. The well-known Dutch architect Jo Coenen won the competition for the master plan design and acted as supervisor during the design and construction of the project. Witteveen+Bos was involved in Belval Plaza I, II and Belval Tower, providing structural engineering, research, design and consultancy on all geotechnical issues.
