Alides and Zabra join forces for real estate project "Silsburg Zuid" in Deurne



Ghent, June 29, 2023 - Alides, a real estate developer and investor, and Zabra, a real estate developer, both based in Ghent, are proud to announce their first collaboration. The joint commitment pertains to the "Silsburg Zuid" project in Deurne. To facilitate the realization of this project, the companies Silsburg Development and Silsburg Land have been established, with Alides and Zabra each owning a 50% stake.

Both parties are determined to shape the "Silsburg Zuid" project in an innovative and sustainable manner, respecting the environment and the needs of the neighborhood. The project area is situated along Van Strydoncklaan and Dassastraat in the Deurne Zuid district of Antwerp. This location marks the transition between the urban fabric of Deurne and the more expansive spaces  such as the Groot Schijn Park and the Rivierenhof Provincial Green Estate.

In 2020, in collaboration with the city architect, a design study was conducted for the projecta area and its broader surroundings. The  study identified opportunities to  create a variety of housing typologies, with a specific emphasis on green spaces and public connections in accordance with the "Deurne Green Plan."

Alides and Zabra are enthusiastic about the possibilities offered by the "Silsburg South" project and aim to establish a modern-day and sustainable living environment that meets the needs and expectations of future residents.

The "Silsburg South" project is currently in the preparatory phase, with an ongoing procedure for obtaining a permit for land subdivision.
