Nieuw Zuid Antwerp

View on The Scheldt

Nieuw Zuid is a new part of the city next to Zuid in Antwerp, made for living. A cosy neighbourhood, where people live, work, play and socialise. An architecturally diverse palette of buildings designed by the best in their profession. A green neighbourhood too, where people enjoy the extensive park and the views on the Scheldt.

Here, the city generates oxygen, rainwater is used smartly and energy is used sparingly. Welcome to tomorrow's neighbourhood.

The biggest garden of ‘t Stad

City living and greenery, Nieuw Zuid proves that they get along very well. More than that, its green character gives the neighbourhood a relaxed atmosphere and an extraordinary quality of life unique to an urban landscape.

Sixty percent of the land is reserved for plantings, wadis, an expansive park, play areas and courtyard gardens. In addition, Nieuw Zuid is also bordered by Kaaipark with urban woods on the Scheldt, and Zuidpark, the new park on the Gedempte Zuiderdokken.

Thoughtful architecture

All of the buildings at Nieuw Zuid were designed by award-winning architects who have caused a worldwide furore with their innovative and visually powerful designs.

The experience and inspiration that the architects put into their work translates into buildings with an international dimension and exceptional living quality. These masters of the trade harness the art of living and use of materials like no other and know how to effortlessly create smart designs that play with light, views and space.

Groundbreaking and innovative

Nieuw Zuid was built with an eye to the future. The master plan underlying the district envisions numerous innovative interventions that will make the neighbourhood climate-proof, green and sustainable.

One of the most eye-catching measures is the heat network, whose artistic chimney became an iconic eye-catcher. Wadis, drainage from green roofs, recovery of yard water and plantings on the buildings, relieve the burden on the sewer system and gradually direct rainwater back into the soil. Evaporation also provides cooling on hot days.

And there are numerous large and small things like this. Soil from the excavations was recovered to raise the quays, beehives lure the endangered creatures back to the city, low-traffic residential areas make the neighbourhood livable. Velo stations, additional bicycle storage, and good connections to public transport encourage alternative travel.
