Straat in het vizier (“Street in our sights”) – Province of Antwerp

Within the project ‘Straat in het vizier’, five Antwerp municipalities are studying what makes a shopping street of their choice (concept street) especially attractive, by means of a participative, well-supported process. The participants in this process are all stakeholders in the concept street: entrepreneurs, owners, brokers, residents, local administration, interest groups etc., together with the province. CityD has been commissioned by the province of Antwerp to provide guidance to Hoogstraten and Heist-op-den-Berg during this process. As a profile, both communities have a lower level of vacancy and are surrounded by agriculture and horticulture, 2 factors that they are certainly keen to play on in their identity.
