Ideally located at the entrance of the city and along the banks, the “Port du Bon Dieu” project foremostly optimizes the assets of the landscaped banks of the Meuse, offers a rational use of space and meets the willingness of the regional and local community authorities to  rehabilitate this former industrial site and redevelop the waterfront.

A  unique environment

The iconic “Port du Bon Dieu” project is now part of the history of the city of Namur.

Among others, it enables the Capital of Wallonia to reinstate its wharfs with a quality development, offering a soul and a unique atmosphere to the inhabitants of Namur and visitors passing by.

Ideally situated at the edge of the city, this mixed housing complex (housing, offices, local shops) perfectly combines the urban advantages and the tranquillity of the Meuse embankments.

Atenor had the opportunity to complete the Port du Bon Dieu housing project in Namur with a proposal for an office project for CBC bank. We will have thus envisaged a complete reconversion of a once semi-industrial area in a mixed district, offering a varied typology of housing, efficient offices, retail shops and quality public spaces open to all. In a word, we have expressed our added value by developing and revitalizing an urban district characteristic of the city of today.

Sharing and conviviality

Landscaping the embakments into a pedestrian promenade, access to the RAVeL made possible again, shops and quality restaurants, the calming presence of water and the importance given to green spaces highlight the human dimension  thanks to a unique atmosphere.

Model of sustainable urban redevelopment

Designed according to the highest standards in sustainability, the project revolves around the enhancement of the role of water, the integration of green spaces and the rigorous choice of sustainable construction techniques.

Mobility and accessibility

Close to major roads, railway station, public transport, river shuttles and a large park & ride facility, the Port du Bon Dieu opts for easy mobility and accessibility for occupants and their visitors.
