The Public Partnerr (66%)

Logo stadsontwikkelingSince 1999 the Stadsontwikkelingsbedrijf (SOB) has been conducting an active land and building policy to further the urban development of the City of Ghent. First as a public utility (1999 to 2003), later as an autonomous municipal company AG SOB (as of 2003). In the initial years, the missions were limited to the implementation of SIF projects (Social Impulse Fund); later, many projects were added to the order book of the AG SOB during the administration period 2001-2006.

The projects focused above all on the policy areas of living, working and greenery. These projects were anchored in the Ghent Spatial Structure Plan and the many policy memoranda of the board, aldermen and city departments. The AG SOB received a prominent role in the new 2007-2012 administrative agreement. Many new projects are being prepared at present, and their implementation is being entrusted to the AG SOB. The company currently has over thirty employees, a balance sheet total of around 100 million euros and capital and reserves of nearly 60 million euros.
