BAM wins contract for Infinity housing, office and retail scheme in Luxembourg
BAM has been awarded the contract for the structural works (excluding façade and finishing) of the Infinity housing, office and retail scheme in Luxembourg. The client is real estate developer Immobel. The project will be delivered by BAM's Walloon subsidiary BAM Galère with its Luxembourg subsidiary BAM Lux in joint venture with Cegelec (mechanical and electrical contracting). The joint venture will start construction of the offices in October 2017. The scheme is due to be completed mid-2020 for the residential building.
Infinity is located between the old city centre and Kirchberg, a district in north-eastern Luxembourg City, which houses various European Union institutions. The project includes 20,000 m² housing, a shopping centre of 6,500 m² with 23 shops, restaurants and cafés as well as an office building of 6,800 m² and basements of 15,700 m². Infinity is designed by the renowned American architectural firm Arquitectonica (Bernardo Fort-Brescia) together with M3 Architectes from Luxembourg.
The residential tower Infinity Living – which will be the first high-rise residential building in Luxembourg – comprises 150 luxury apartments on 25 floors. The office building Infinity Working offers eight floors of flexible BREEAM Excellent office space. The two sculptural towers are linked together by a retail gallery featuring a planted roof.
