Wilhelm & Co

Passion for the City

A recognised pioneer in the field of large urban mixed-use projects and shopping centres.

Since its inception in 1988, the Wilhelm & Co Group has established itself as a significant player in the European retail property market with more than 1,500,000 sqm completed and currently under development. As an integrated operator, the group realizes large tailor-made mixed use projects with a focus on retail and the redevelopment of city centres. Its multidisciplinary international team allows it to take charge, with a long term approach, of all aspects of conception, development, financing and investment, shopping centre and parking management of a project. Its name is forever associated with L’esplanade, 300,000 sqm, in Louvain-la-Neuve, which has turned a campus surrounded by residential districts into a genuine urban hub, and with Médiacité, 160,000 sqm focused around a media cluster and a shopping centre, and with iconic architecture and sustainability as its guiding principles. The group is currently developing two new city centre projects: a first project named ‘Centro’ located in La Louvière (Belgium) consisting of a multifunctional project anchored with a 53,000 GLA sqm shopping center, 600 residential units and outdoor/indoor leisure facilities on more than 200 hectares of land, and a second multifunctional project of 100,000 sqm in partnership in Italy. Wilhelm & Co is active in Belgium, France, Luxemburg, Italy and Africa.

The company is the winner of numerous international professional recognitions, including two ICSC European Awards and one of five nominees for the ‘World Viva Best of the Best’ prestigious ICSC Award in 2012.
