Meanwhile the first trees have been planted, silver birches (Betula Pendula) and willow trees (Salix Alba). You can find them along the green corridor of Blue Gate Antwerp business park. The vegetation around the waterholes continues to develop spontaneously. On the one hand, the realisation of the green corridor aims at a seamless connection between the city and the nature reserve of the Hobokense Polder. On the other hand, this green zone creates a natural barrier that leads to better soil and water quality for this area. A win-win for all stakeholders.
