Agora, 20 years of successful collaboration between the State and ArcelorMittal

Created in 2000, 50/50 by the Luxembourg State and ArcelorMittal, Agora celebrated its 20th anniversary this week (+1) in the presence of Claude Turmes, Minister of Energy and Spatial Planning, Michel Wurth, President of the Board of Directors of ArcelorMittal Luxembourg and the mayors of the municipalities of Sanem, Esch-sur-Alzette and Schifflange.

On this occasion, the company was able to take stock of the projects that have enabled it to become the benchmark in terms of upgrading industrial land. This is particularly the case in the Belval district, located on part of the former ArcelorMittal site near our steel site of the same name, which is still in operation. Thanks to the conversion of these former industrial sites into a district bringing together shops, cultural places and homes, the south of the country has been revitalized and has become an attractive hub like the capital.

Today, Agora has marketed 84% of the land and buildings in the Belval district. The company has taken on a new challenge: to convert the brownfield sites at the ArcelorMittal Schifflange site.

In a country facing a housing crisis, Agora continues to offer sustainable urban planning solutions and develops these solutions for environmentally friendly lifestyles.
