You will find yourself surrounded by like-minded companies that push each other’s growth. How? Think open innovation (through knowledge sharing), decreased costs (through group purchases) and increased circularity (through complementary processes).
You are actively supported in your sustainability efforts. Blue Gate Antwerp guides you towards a climate neutral infrastructure, the park management minimises the ecological footprint of the entire site, and we help you to close your production chain inside and outside the park.
You get to perfectly align production and transport thanks to the unique location and layout of the site. Use the new loading and unloading dock for waterbound transport. You can easily reach the whole of Europe over land from your centrally located base next to Antwerp.

“Blue Gate will be the new standard in terms of effective use of space that continues to get more scarce. Innovative logistic buildings, a minimal impact on the environment and a maximisation of social values such as pleasant workplaces, smart distribution and the considerate usage and reuse of materials will be at the core of this project.”

LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER
Invest in Blue Gate Antwerp
The total Blue Gate Antwerp project area covers 63 hectares. The site is to be developed as a “green lung” with businesses located in a smart way. Should your business be on the logistics site, on the periphery or in the core? We will be happy to explore the possibilities with you.
One lot consists of at least 5,000 m². Of course, it’s up to you whether you want to share a lot with another company or buy a bigger one. Good to know: the building code prescribes spacious unpaved areas on each plot. This code helps you to realise your ecological ambitions. At the same time, it ensures the green character of the entire site.
