Master planning and residential development, with commercial and retail functions.
    As part of the urban renewal policy being implemented by the City of Ostend, two Public Private Partnership competitions were held by the AGSO (Autonoom Gemeentebedrijf Stadsvernieuwing Oostende) in 2008. They were developed to ensure the selection of a suitable private partner for the complete reconversion and development of a multifunctional part of the city found on the Oosteroever maritime site. NV Oosteroever, in conjunction with CONIX RDBM Architects, won both these competitions.

    With their masterplan for the Oosteroever east bank area, CONIX RDBM Architects designed the largest development project seen on the Belgian coast for many years. With 120,000 m² of above-ground surface area giving rise to 1,200 residential apartments, 90 per cent of which will enjoy a view of the sea, this high-quality residential project will deliver a new energy to the east of Ostend. Progressive architecture, a well thought-out building method, the use of the post-tension technique for terraces with swimming pools (a world first), and eye-catching, polished white architectonic decorative cement will all combine to make Baelskaai 12 a unique project in its field.
