VIDEO | Antwerp’s Spoorpark design presented

City of Antwerp‘s real estate agency AG Vespa has presented a first design for the future Spoorpark (Rail Park) linking the Zurenborg neighbourhood to Borgerhout. The public gets a new opportunity for input.

Promenade Plantée in Paris

The Promenade Plantée in Paris is a 4.7 km or 2.9 mile elevated linear park built on top of obsolete railway infrastructure in the 12th arrondissement. It was inaugurated in 1993. 


The Zurenborg neighbourhood in Antwerp is more than the Cogels-Osylei. It’s street with names of cinstellations (e.g. Stierstraat – Taurus Street and Tweelingenstraat – Gemini Street).
