The ‘Gasmeter’ site is a subproject of the urban renewal project ‘Bridges to Rabot’. On a polluted site around old gas tanks 450 new homes will be realized.  The choice of a different way of living in a green urban setting without classic streets, without cars, without closed housing blocks has the potential to transform the poorest suburb in the city and turn it into the richest. The old gas tanks will be a beacon for culture and relaxation.
