MG City Store Gent
From one extreme to another, from a dull, vacant building to an impressive retail construction – that’s how MG City Store came about. MG Real Estate put this hotspot back on Ghent’s map.
- Clients: Albert Heijn, Sissy Boy, Men at Work, Pain Quotidien, Skin Cosmetics
- Surface: Approx. 3.650 m²
- Completion: 2015
The Post-Plaza building - constructed in 1910 - was known as a beautiful building in Ghent’s city centre that was not commercially accessible. That is, until MG Real Estate decided to deepen the cellar by 2.5 m, below the water line of the river Leie. It proved to be a technical feat, but it was the only way to make the building’s cellar commercially attractive. And successfully. Albert Heijn, with its street-side entrance, has been doing extremely well. MG Real Estate managed to do the impossible and changed the walking direction on the Korenmarkt. The following important players have settled in the MG City Store complex: Albert Heijn: A Dutch supermarket chain that has made groceries affordable, and extraordinary products accessible, even in Belgium. Sissy Boy: As a unique fashion and lifestyle brand, Sissy Boy gives meaning to your basic needs in life. Men at Work: this Dutch multi-brand store focuses on denim and on a great shopping experience. Men at Work has become the biggest multi-brand chain in the Benelux. Pain Quotidien: A Belgian organic bakery where you can go for a sumptuous breakfast, a healthy lunch or a quick snack. Skins Cosmetics: An exceptional selection of international niche skincare, fragrance and beauty brands.
