Luxembourg and Poland
Diversifying, adapting and standing out have been the main characteristics of our business model since the start of Group Maes and Alides. In addition, Alides has a clear growth strategy: investing in prime locations with long-term potential. That is why we do not limit ourselves to Belgian cities and the nearby strategic locations. We also look abroad. We want to shape and broaden our diverse portfolio by focussing on geographical distribution, always with quality, legal certainty and risk spreading in mind. In doing so, we have been active in Luxembourg and Poland for the last few years.
In 2017, Alides purchased together with Revive the former Imperial Shipyards in the Hanseatic city of Gdańsk. The site is historically known as one of the most important harbours in the region and has been the scene of the Solidarność movement of Lech Wałęsa in the 70’s and 80’s.
The old shipyards are being redeveloped into a lively neighbourhood with a mix of different functions, named Stocznia Cesarska. A sustainable approach and a high working and living standard are the focus of this project.
In the future, Alides wants to further broaden its strategic importance in the region and in Poland. We are currently looking into multiple opportunities. As a hybrid player who combines the competences of investor and developer, we are convinced that the Polish market aligns perfectly with the core business and the growth policy of Alides.
