Pier Kornel

“Trend watchers say you can tell if a city is really alive by the number of coffee houses, and they're popping up like mushrooms here”, Christoph D'haese, Mayor of Aalst, recently said in newspaper De Morgen. Revive and Matexi are aiming for the sky with Pier Kornel. Stretching out over the water, on the former site of Tupperware, a beautiful mix of new sustainable homes is coming to life.

New urban area

Pier Kornel is being built on the 4-hectare site of the former Tupperware factory in Aalst, along the shores of the Dender river. The project breathes new life into this site that has such a rich history, transforming it into a city neighbourhood that is ready for tomorrow.Around 450 new homes will be built at Pier Kornel, comprising both houses and apartments. They will be built in different phases. The houses are designed for every generation, in different typologies (family homes, garden apartments, assisted-living homes, waterfront living, etc.) and for various budgets.

More than just a home

Pier Kornel is much more than just a place to live. By carefully integrating different community-supporting facilities, such as shops, restaurants, a doctor's practice, etc., it becomes a vibrant neighbourhood that offers added value to its residents and the surrounding areas. The low-traffic squares and child-friendly streets make for an ideal setting for social gatherings with family and neighbours, with plenty of space for the kids to run around. Cyclists and pedestrians come first, although your home can easily be reached by car with parking spaces nearby.

Central location

The area surrounding this site is a very important factor. Pier Kornel is at walking distance from the centre of town and Aalst station and situated in a quiet area with a cosy and low-traffic interior green zone. Furthermore, Pier Kornel offers easy access by car to the E40 motorway, meaning you can be in Ghent or Brussels in no time. Public transport and schools are also easily accessible. The residents of Pier Kornel can enjoy the best of two worlds: the hustle and bustle of the city and the tranquillity of the local scenery.

Investment opportunity

Aalst is a vibrant provincial city with all the facilities you need. The many shopping streets, lively squares and busy cafés are a guarantee for a pleasant city life.The city of Aalst is actively engaged in the revaluation of the Dender river. Industrial sites on the water are being transformed into the new ‘place to be’. Pier Kornel is the first to realise this vision, with a mix for all generations. In other words, you can be sure of living in a neighbourhood with great potential.

Aalst and Sint-Niklaas are two up-and-coming cities with plenty to offer. So it's no wonder that Revive is building your dream home there! In the video below, Sofie Verstraete, Revive's project developer of Pier Kornel, talks about the project.
