Brussels, 30 June 2020 – Banimmo NV and Argema Sàrl (Group Marc Liégeois) have signed a sales agreement with Belfius Insurance today for the sale of 100% of the shares of MC² Development SA, the company currently constructing ING’s new centre of activities in Louvain-la-Neuve. Already in February 2020 a long-term rental contract with ING entered into force. The transfer of the shares will take place after the occupation of the building by ING and the first payment of rent, foreseen in December 2021.

The building, designed by Jaspers & Eyers Architects, assisted by the engineers TPF Engineering and the landscaper SKOPE, comprises approximately 10,000 m² of offices spread across 4 floors around a central atrium, and 350 underground parking spaces. The rental contract was concluded with Cushman & Wakefield as intervening party, and the construction of the building is entrusted to the two general contractors Bâtiments et Ponts Construction SA and Entreprises Jacques Delens SA, under the project management of Immo-Pro.

This building aspires a BREEAM EXCELLENT score (low energy consumption, natural light, domotics, recovery of rainwater, solar panels, …), and is a unique example of an attractive mobility-driven and innovative working environment thanks to its luminous atrium and a garden labelled ‘RESEAU NATURE’, emphasizing sustainable mobility thanks to the infrastructure for electrical bikes and cars.

With this transaction Banimmo secured a first project after a long period of divestments. Two other office projects, namely NETWORKS Gent at The Loop in Ghent and NETWORKS NØR in the North district of Brussels are further developed at risk.

Belsquare intervened for the sale.
