Rive Gauche

In line with the political will regarding Charleroi’s urban and aesthetic regeneration, the Rive Gauche project is the driving force behind the lower city’s development. It redraws the public space and traces the outlines of a new neighbourhood by creating new interconnections. By offering a large range of activities and functions in a contemporary architectural language, it reinforces the urban centre’s attractiveness. The project proposes a redefinition of the public space of the Place Verte (former Place Albert Ier) and part of the boulevard Tirou, the lower city’s main thoroughfare, as well as the decisive reinforcement of the pedestrian path in which it fits.
