Vastint Belgium has received a LEED Platinum certificate for Elite House in Brussels. With 89 points it is the highest scoring LEED certification in Belgium and second highest in the Benelux. Only two buildings in the whole of Belgium are LEED Platinum certified; Elite House and Courtyard by Marriott Brussels EU. Both buildings are owned by Vastint Belgium.
Elite House offers 3,500 m² retail area, 3,200 m² office space and 250 m² residential area and is well connected to the city’s main public transport hubs. It is located in one of Brussels’ busiest and most popular districts, attracting thousands of passers-by on one of the most popular shopping streets in the Belgian capital.
The building has recently been rebuilt to meet modern and sustainable standards. The stylish façade seamlessly blends a classical look with state-of-the-art functionality. However, a building is much more than its exterior look, which is why Elite House was designed to be modern and sustainable – genuinely timeless.
From the very beginning a sustainable approach was taken. During the design and construction process, Vastint Belgium used many practical and measurable strategies to create a sustainable and healthier environment for the building’s users. Water use reduction, a green roof, rainwater retention, green electricity, good accessibility and an excellent indoor air quality are just a few of the attributes on the list.
