ULI Belgium: Rive Gauche Site Tour

On 13 March, 27 members of ULI Belgium took a half-day tour of Rive Gauche, a shopping centre and urban regeneration project in Charleroi inspired by the casual sophistication of the eponymous area in Paris.

Stéphane Coël, Project Director at Iret Development, led the site visit.

Over the course of the visit, attendees learned how the shopping center has created a new urban quarter in the city centre and had enhanced the local landscape with new trendy cafés, restaurants, bars and cultural and artistic activities for the development of a high quality, vibrant, urban way of life.
