A downtown urban renewal project
The shopping centre and the 40 apartments were constructed on a site, situated in a downtown quarter, which formerly housed a primary school, a high school (Onze-Lieve-Vrouw van Bijstand), an elderly home and a covent.
In December 2009, the shopping centre was sold by Foruminvest to the German Union Investment Real Estate company.
Construction works started in August 2007.
The opening of the shopping centre ought be during the fall of 2009, but was later postponed to spring 2010.
