SSC On Topic 4: Green Urban Development in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium

Published on 23 August 2022 at 12:04

In Sint-Niklaas, where they have the largest market square in Belgium (3.19 hectares), they have taken on the challenge to make it more green. After working together with different partners,  the final plan for its blue-green redevelopment is ready. There will be a water feature in front of the town hall, much more greenery, such as a grass square of 1500 square meters and a variety of trees and plants, providing more opportunities for people to relax and children to play. It is in our opinion a nice example of incorporating nature for sustainable urban development in a city centre.
