The Cultural and residential complex Kanaal, an important milestone in Axel Vervoordt's life, represents his construction and restoration of a 16th century building in Vlaeykensgang in Antwerp in the late 1960s, And the idea of recreating the 1984 S-Gravenwezel castle.

In both cases, Vervoordt retains the character and soul of each place. The new approach was instantly accepted by everyone and elevated Axel Vervoordt into the category of "art connoisseur".

In 1998, Vervoordt acquired Kanaal, a large brick and mortar industrial complex built in the second half of the 19th century on the banks of Albert Canal. At first it was used as a warehouse, but gradually Vervoordt arranged it differently until it became what it is today: a cultural and residential complex with exhibition Spaces, a multipurpose auditorium and permanent installations for important artists, as well as headquarters offices, showrooms and studios for the Vervoordt company.

Over the past decade, industrial buildings have been restored and converted to modern use, while a number of new buildings have been added. The project includes 98 apartments, 30 offices and amenities such as a gym and Japanese restaurant "K. The site serves as Vervoordt's headquarters offices, showrooms and workshops, giving Kanaal a dynamic and charming village atmosphere.
