The CALICO project is an intergenerational grouped housing project located in Forest. The 34 housing units in the building are divided between 4 partners: CLTB, ANGELA D, PASS-AGES and the CPAS de Forest.
The CALICO housing project is located in Forest, on the side of Place Saint-Denis, Abbaye de Forest and Parc Duden, in a residential area. The building is less than 300 metres away from the Châtaignes tram stop, 900 metres from the Forest train station and 1.5 km from the Gare du Midi train station.
Launched in November 2018 with subsidies from the European funding under the Innovative Urban Actions programme, the CALICO project has entered the year of its move-in in 2021. The CLTB residents’ group has been in place for over a year. Although contact has been reduced by sanitary measures since the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic in Belgium, our future residents continue to prepare their entry into the project this autumn.
The involvement of the inhabitants of CALICO will be more important than in other CLTB buildings. The values of self-help, gender equality and care are fundamental to the whole project.
