What

 

At DWNTWN we develop real estate projects a little differently. We believe the city in all its complexity holds the key to a bright future, that is why our core business is sustainable redevelopment and thoughtful regeneration of existing buildings. Our practice is focused on integrated, green and sustainable projects with multi-modal accessibility, located in city centres. We believe this should be the standard for a future-proof approach of development.

How

 

To us sustainability is a broad spectrum of actions we strive for in every project. It means environmental friendly buildings both in terms of materials and energy. It means thinking long-term on matters such as dealing with changing needs, impact on the surroundings and the link to other places both geographic and programmatic. These are all issues that are taken into account and that we implement in our projects through quality architecture, flexible plans and forward-thinking programs.

Who

 

Founders Alexander Steyns and Jan De Kuyper met while working in real estate development. DWNTWN was founded in 2017 as a way to explore their shared vision on sustainable redevelopment. Our small team relies on a wide mix of backgrounds and experiences to envision tomorrow’s cities. Downtown is as varied as the urban fabric we live in and work with. We also work with a network of like-minded partners in a variety of fields. Partnering with the best of breed allows us to broaden our scope and to be innovative in the way we live, work and move.

 

As passionate urban dwellers we want to create places that will have a positive impact on the cities we leave to the next generation. Buildings shape the city, but it's the way real estate creates places that matter in peoples' everyday life that defines truly successful projects.
