Multi-purpose urban renewal project
Commercial space: 3.312 m² | residential space: 1.840 m²
This development project involved integrating modern-day functions and restoring the former postal building in the heart of the Ghent city centre.
This urban upgrade also involved converting the eclectic listed building into the Post Plaza – a commercial centre surrounding an agora positioned under a spectacular dome. Post Plaza is located at a pivotal point along the city’s classical-commercial axis on the Korenmarkt, Pakhuisstraat and Graslei. Spacious residential units and offices with unique views across the historic city centre were constructed on the upper levels.
Cloquet and Mortier created this postal building in 1903, adding a valuable new asset to Ghent’s list of historic buildings and designing one of the most impressive eclectic complexes in the country. Almost a century later, the Post Plaza is a prime example of a successful juxtaposition of contemporary syntax, modern design and historic architecture
