A modular cityscape

The Machelen Canal Zone is a former industrial region, but the new Uplace development is set to turn this derelict site into the largest shopping experience destination in the BeNeLux region.

The design is a draws on a blend of modern and traditional themes and incorporates an integrated network of streets, squares and public spaces.

Clustered around a podium that discreetly conceals multi-level parking facilities, it will create a modular cityscape.

An intricate network of pedestrian routes will subtly define Uplace into distinct quarters, each with different characteristics and roles that combine to create a truly urban experience.
