Nieuw Zuid is designed as a green village surrounded by a city and is situated at an excellent location next to the Schelde river. This new district is a strong magnet for top architects with almost 2,000 apartments, 38 buildings, and 12 ha of green area, probably one of the biggest and most green new construction projects that Belgium has ever known. For the entire site, the city of Antwerp is installing an external heat network that provides every building with heat using renewable energy. The neighborhood is targeted to be completely finished by 2030. By then, also public facilities including schools, nurseries, a sports hall, and a service center will be available.
Both the site and the buildings at the Nieuw Zuid district attract several international top architects, among which the residential tower Scheldezicht is one of the top projects. Spectacular panoramas, a new architecture, and an absolute top location. The L-shaped ground plan consists of a 24-story residential tower complemented with a 5-story mid-rise building. Scheldezicht makes you live at great heights. The 24-story building of 15,000m² with 116 homes, offices, commercial spaces, and communal areas is complemented by another 5,000m² of balconies, winter gardens, and roof terraces that increase the quality of life. With the incredible view on the Schelde river, park, and city, you literally live with the city at your feet.
