LIFE has acquired the Franciscan sisters' former school site of Herentals
We are proud that this beautiful site is now part of our portfolio.
We are pleased to announce that the site, which consists of the old school buildings, the Francesco Pavilion, and the parking lot on Nonnenstraat, is now part of our portfolio.
The site of the previous school is situated centrally amid “De Bovenrij,” a shopping street, and a one-of-a-kind convent garden. It comprises eight structures dating from 1910 to 1980. The site’s gross floor area is about 9,250m².
LIFE intends to transform the area into a mixed-use development with co-living, condominiums, rental apartments and ancillary facilities such as offices, shops, restaurants and studios. A sustainable integration of the non-profit organisation Moktamee, also known as ‘the creative hub of the Kempen’, is currently under investigation in consultation with the city of Herentals. Moktamee is already present on the site.
The aim of the reconstruction is to preserve and improve the site’s diverse and valuable patrimony while honouring its rich history.
With this move, LIFE maintains its position as a trailblazer in the field of contributing to progressive living and cohabitation in Flanders, Brussels, and Wallonia.
It’s expected that the environmental permit is going to be applied for in the first half of 2024.
