LIEGE | Finance Tower | 118m | 28 fl | Com

Project to build the new finance centre (Liège)


Quote:
Rue de Fragnée - Rue Paradis
4000
Liège


Total space : 39 000 m²

Description :

We would recall that, in early 2009 the Buildings Agency signed a lease with Fedimmo, a 90% subsidiary of Befimmo, for a building to be erected at Rue Paradis in Liège under a public promotion contract. This building is to house the new offices of the Finance Federal Public Service, and is let for a fixed 25-year term, expiring in June 2038.
Under that contract, Fedimmo applied for a “single permit” based on the building certificate it obtained mid-2008. The permit was issued by the technical official and delegate of the Walloon Region on 30 September 2011.
An appeal lodged against a decision of the Walloon Minister of Public Works on the opening and modification of roads as set out in the amended plans of the single permit application, is under investigation by the Council of State.
In early November 2011, appeals against the permit were lodged with the Walloon Minister for Town and Country Planning. The Minister has ruled on these appeals and, by Ministerial Order on 10 February 2012, issued the requested permit.
Fedimmo has begun erecting the building in early March 2012, with handover expected in June 2014. The total cost of the project is estimated at around €95 million.

Permit granted for the new Finance Tower in Liège

Quote:
Liege – known in French as ‘the passionate city’ – certainly stirs up real estate passions. A new demonstration of this fervour which could be described as ‘Latin’ comes in the form of the Finance Tower project in the Guillemins district, as an extension to the majestic Calatrava station.
This new 28-storey finance tower – peaking at 118 metres – is scheduled to rehouse the 1,000 functionaries of the Federal Finance Service by 2017, functionaries who are currently accommodated in the Finance Complex, set to be demolished. The space liberated by the previous tower will be given free of charge to the City, which will construct an esplanade to receive the Liège tram.

Sicafi (real estate certificate) Befimmo and its subsidiary Fedimmo are at the controls, taking care of the financing and realisation of the project, whose cost remains… a secret. The only figures available on the website of the ‘Soir’ newspaper: the 38,291 m² of the tower are to be rented to the Finance Service for an annual sum of 54 million Euros, and for a 25 year period. The project has just moved into a new phase on its way to becoming a reality, with the obtaining of the single permit, granted by the Walloon Planning Minister. Its opponents are not yet silenced, however, and the green plumes (ecological in political terms) of Minister Philippe Henry seem to antagonise them a little more. In the front row of opponents is to be found the not for profit organisation urbAgora, which hopes to block the project through turning once again to the Council of State.

The construction of the Tower started in March 2012, was stopped during 4 months between July and October 2012 and started again in November 2012.

Here some pictures taken 2 days ago.
