In October 2009, Democo commenced building works on the ambitious Forté Neerpelt project. This prestigious project to build housing and shops is an initiative by property developers DMI Vastgoed and Neerpelt council, whose priority is high-quality housing in the municipality's centre.
Forté consists of three parts : Alto, Brio and Cello. In addition to a 3.550 m² shopping area, the project includes 27 service flats in Forté Alto, 27 apartments in Forté Brio and 23 apartments in Forté Cello.
The initial groundwork has now been completed and there is a large building site approx. 3.200 m² wide and 6m deep in the centre of Neerpelt. Building work on a 2 storey underground car park (± 6.000 m²) is set to commence. After the summer holidays, Democo will start work aboveground, building the rough structures of the apartments and service flats.
