The Arsenaal site is a former workplace of the NMBS (Belgian Railways) of 13 ha in Gentbrugge, next to the E17 highway. The consortium Arsenaal 3PK (consisting of developer Danneels, Monument Group and Quva) acquired this site after a market consultation.

The intention is that what has been a large enclosed area until today will be developed into a multifunctional district where economic activity, housing, culture and open space meet all contemporary standards of sustainability.
