Filteint - Sint-Niklaas


In the centre of Sint-Niklaas, within walking distance of the Market Square and in close proximity to schools, shops and sports facilities, Willemen is developing 101 apartments and 10 houses on the site of the former 'Filteint' textile factory. The apartments are divided into 4 separate living blocks. A new green and tranquil environment is being created around the entire complex with the construction of a park, pond, pathways, play area and the preservation of the historic chimney as a reminder of the site's rich industrial past.

The project is executed in different phases:

  • Lino: 30 apartments, 01/2015 - 11/2016
  • Lana: 26 apartments, 09/2015 - 06/2017
  • Lato. 10 houses, 11/2017 - 11/2018
  • Sisal: 24 apartments, 05-2018 - 05/2020
  • Kemp: 21 apartments, 05/2018 - 05/2020

The offer of apartments is very diverse, ranging from 1 to 3 bedrooms measuring between 61m² and 135m². Each apartment has its own terrace. All apartments can be reached via a lift, connected to the underground garage, in which the private cellar areas are also located.

The houses are all semi-detached, and each with a private garden. All the exterior joinery is in cast aluminium with a super-insulating glazing. Maximum attention has been paid to high quality insulation and ventilation with heat recovery.

The energy saving measures all make for a low E and K levels and lower energy bills.
