Here at ORG, we've recently finished a study on the transportation issues in Belgium, focusing on two main cities, Brussels and Antwerp. We are looking for ways to improve mobility! The study comes to propose a ‘seamless decentralized mobility’ as a newly conceived network of hubs and spokes, designed for current and emerging mobility technologies and strategically positioned in an intermediary zone along the urban transect; between the dense urban core and the suburbs. This intermediary zone presents enormous opportunities for relieving pressures, both on transportation congestion, as well as on metropolitan densification of uses; two pressures which require intelligent alignment. We argue that performance enhancement of the mobility sector in these zones is inevitably linked to new development opportunities, from perspectives which relate to infrastructure, financing and economic sustainability, as well as regional commuting patterns and quality of life. Decentralized Seamless Mobility: Unlocking the Belgian mobility gridlock through urban planning and technological innovation, a study by ORG Permanent Modernity in collaboration with Deloitte Belgium and MIT School of Architecture and Planning. Commissioned by Realty Belgium. Presented at Realty Belgium Summit 2019. Presentation Link Here.
