VDD Project Development presents new redevelopment project: Lindenlei 38
Heritage developer VDD Project Development has presented plans for the long-awaited redevelopment of the Sint-Agneteklooster, later known as the Industrial School, in the centre of Ghent to the neighbourhood. VDD acquired the site in December 2021 following a public sale organised by the former owner, "GO! Gemeenschapsonderwijs". The plans were drawn up by British David Chipperfield Architects, which was awarded the Pritzker Prize, also known as the "Nobel Prize for Architecture", in 2023. This in collaboration with ATAMA architects and the restoration architects of aNNo. The internationally renowned Bureau Bas Smets was responsible for the design of the surroundings. This ambitious project came about after a thorough preliminary process and extensive consultation with the city departments involved, the Quality Chamber and the "Agentschap Onroerend Erfgoed".

The Dome redevelopment project gets the green light from Brussels
A green light has been given to the long-awaited redevelopment project, The Dome, on the corner of Beursplein and Anspachlaan. The Dome, as it was christened by the developer team at VDD Project Development and Vervoordt r.e., is a multifunctional building with 21,000 m2 of retail, restaurant, office and residential space. The design stands out for its architectural allure and respect for the story behind the building and its surrounding environment. The project is also typified by the building's integration in the surrounding public space and by the variety of urban functions that it houses. The renovation of this iconic building in the heart of the city represents a milestone in the revitalisation of Brussels city centre.
