Belgium: Belgium-based operator BBF Apartments expands further with a new residence, Initium, in Antwerp.
BBF Apartments, a Belgium-based operator, will open their new residence in June. Initium is a modern apartment complex located only 10 minutes from the city centre and Central Station. Antwerp has always been a large business hub in Belgium and these new accommodations are aimed at ex-pats and business travellers in Antwerp. BBF Apartments will offer studios as well as one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.
BBF is a specialised provider of serviced and residential apartments since 1992. With more than 1600 units in top locations in Antwerp and Brussels, they can offer short-, mid- and long-term rental packages combined with professional services. Moreover, renting an apartment with BBF allows all foreign tenants to register in the local town hall according to European Law.
“We are thrilled to expand our presence in Belgium with the launch of Initium in Antwerp,” said Raquel Van Canneyt, CEO of BBF Apartments. “Antwerp is a vibrant and dynamic city, and we are excited to offer our guests a comfortable and convenient home away from home.”
Antwerp is an important business hub in Europe for several reasons. One of them is its harbour, which is the second largest in Europe and the tenth largest in the world. The harbour handles a wide range of cargo, from containers and cars to chemicals and petroleum products. It also connects Antwerp to other major ports and cities in Europe and beyond. Another reason is the long-term infrastructure projects that Antwerp is undertaking to improve its accessibility, mobility, and sustainability. These projects include the expansion of the ring road, the construction of a new lock and a new tunnel, and the development of smart city solutions. These projects aim to enhance Antwerp’s attractiveness as a place to live, work and invest.
Antwerp is one of the most well-connected cities in Belgium, thanks to its extensive network of roads and public transport options. Antwerp is located on the banks of the Scheldt River, which connects it to the North Sea and other ports in Europe. Antwerp is also a major hub for highways, with several ring roads and motorways linking it to Brussels, Ghent, Bruges, Liège, and other cities in Belgium and beyond. Antwerp has a modern and efficient public transport system, consisting of buses, trams, metro, and trains. The Antwerp Central Station is a stunning architectural landmark and a major railway junction, serving both national and international destinations. Antwerp also has a bike-sharing scheme and a waterbus service that runs along the river. Antwerp’s connectivity makes it an attractive destination for tourists, business travellers and residents alike.
BBF has announced that they have future development plans in Antwerp Ghent, Mechelen, Leuven and Brussels. To find out more, go to www.bbf.be.
