A new kind of urban development
The existing WTC towers, developed in the 1970s, no longer meet present-day expectations. Flexible working, in terms of both time and space, has become a reality today. Office districts are increasingly becoming places of cooperation where people meet up to work together, in constantly changing configurations.
It is for this reason, among others, that the principle of “building the city” is a main element in the design of the project. ZIN will be fully integrated into its urban ecosystem and will be open to the city. The ground floor will be a true city space, transparent, with a large glazed area accessible to the public, functioning as a meeting place within the district. The view from the roof terrace will be the icing on the cake.
The various functions of the site will each have their own address and access, thereby creating new urban axes.
The ZIN project has won the 2019 be.exemplary award in the category “Large Private Projects”. be.exemplary’s purpose is to encourage and reward exemplary construction and renovation projects in terms of sustainable urban development. More info can be found on the website of be.exemplary.
