Brussels launches a vast canal greening program

The program, launched by the Port of Brussels (Belgium) and its partners, Bruxelles Environnement and Bruxelles Mobilité, aims to restore the ecosystem functions of canal zone, which is currently dotted with heat islands. The planting of over 14,000 trees should help cool the city. In addition to the benefits for the climate, this green network will enhance biodiversity in the area. Nesting boxes and rafts will expand the habitat of the bank swallow, which is making a comeback in Brussels after a period of disappearance. The demineralization of 30,000m² on the banks should help the return of other natural species.

In Toamasina, the port expands while building coastal defenses for the city

A new square for recreational, sporting, and cultural activities has been inaugurated on the northern waterfront of Toamasina (Madagascar). Kiosks have been set up for traders to operate, and the space is available for concerts and other events. This is part of a wider project to rehabilitate the seafront for the benefit of local residents. As part of the extension of the Port of Toamasina, which aims to increase its container capacity, the Société du Port Autonome de Toamasina (SPAT Рthe port authority) has taken the opportunity to build wave-breakers on the urban beaches, to better protect the coastline and prevent submergence of the coastal promenade previously mentioned.

Port Center of Valparaíso enters the design stage

The Port of Valpara√≠so has awarded De La Cuadra-Aldunate Arquitectos Ltda. the task of designing Chile and Latin America’s first Port Center at Muelle Prat. The project, part of a larger waterfront renovation plan, aims to convert a three-story building into a modern space for meetings, offices, a port activity museum, and a panoramic viewpoint. The design emphasizes technology, interactivity, and digital displays to keep the exhibits dynamic over time. The initiative intends to establish a strong connection between the port and the city, fostering community engagement. With plans to complete the design by 2024 and seek construction authorization in 2025, this Port Center seeks to become a landmark for Valpara√≠so, promoting the relationship between the port and the community while following successful global models of port centers. AIVP is proud to have supported the Port of Valpara√≠so in the early stages of the new Port Center, providing best practices from all over the world.
