Liège – St-Léonard

The St-Léonard neighbourhood extends between the Meuse and the slopes of the Citadel, a stone’s throw from the historical heart of Liege. It rapidly developed during the 19th century, with the industrial boom, but then felt the full force of industrial decline, reason for which it has been the subject of special attention from the regional and local authorities since the end of the nineties. The district, which has more than 12,000 residents, is still however experiencing regeneration difficulties, as well as socio-economic ones. Nevertheless, it has many assets and local resources, which could be better mobilised within a sustainable development dynamics.
