The Tinel site by Mechelen’s ramparts is making history once more. The former central police station has been assigned a new future as an atmospheric residential area with quality public space and lots of greenery. In total Ciril is developing 20 homes in the old central police buildings as well as 60 new apartments. The unique mix of housing types makes Tinel a place to dwell for young and old alike.
With the utmost respect for the site’s history, Ciril is transforming the historic buildings into city homes – and several sustainable apartment buildings are being developed as well. All constructions on the Tinel site are conceived with sustainability in mind, which may be of interest to you as well, as costs for the low-energy homes’ power consumption are very low. What is more, the homes are set up with the possibility of being outfitted with a renewable source of energy at a later point.
At Tinel, the new and the old converge within a green, car-free zone. The residential area can only be accessed by car for loading and unloading. Every home on Tinel is easily reachable by bike. As a resident, getting access to bicycle storage close to your home couldn’t be an easier or more smooth process. Peace and quiet guaranteed.
