Q-Park Belgium is to start operating Dusartplein, Molenpoort, Parking TT (TweeTorenwijk) and Luikerpoort car parks. In Genk, we are adding Shopping 1 to the existing Q-Park car parks of Stadsplein and St-Martinus. In total, this involves 3,250 parking spaces, 2000 of which are in Hasselt and 1250 in Genk.
For this purpose, Q-Park Belgium took over shares of various companies that have been in the hands of a number of Limburg families since the 1970s. This takeover is a major milestone for Q-Parks, and there will thus be investments in the car park in the next few years, with the Q-Park corporate style being introduced.
Philip De Brabanter: “For a long time we have maintained good relationships with the shareholders behind these Hasselt and Genk car parks. The mutual trust gradually grew, and this agreement came into being in a professional and respectful manner. Hasselt, the capital of Limburg, has a strong cross-border draw, and we are specifically going to expand in Genk. “
Q-Park Belgium has undergone considerable expansion and has enhanced its market position considerably.
- At the end of 2015, Q-Parks was awarded the construction and operation of the Bruul car park in Mechelen (350 parking spaces), with work having since started.
- In mid 2016, long-term contracts were concluded in Antwerp for Handelsbeurs car parks (284 parking spaces) and Centiry Center (219 parking spaces).
- At the end of November, Q-Parks was awarded the construction and operation of the underground parking garages under the South Docks (>2000 parking spaces).
The takeover of car parks in Hasselt and Genk means Q-Park Belgium is rounding off a particularly successful year.
