The saga which has seen Ghelamco’s Silver Tower in the centre of Brussels first selected by the Region to centralise its administrations, then rejected by the Council of State, has taken another turn. As reported by L’Echo, the Region’s public service department in charge of these affairs (SPRB) has once again announced that the choice for the Silver Tower is confirmed.

The Silver Tower, located at the Place Saint-Lazare just on the other side of the railway lines from the Place Rogier, has now started to emerge from the ground. The tower is scheduled to be delivered at the end of 2020, and as the report in L’Echo makes clear, this restrictive timetable has led to some innovative thinking on the part of the architects and builders. The tower will rise to around 137 metres, although a number of floors are said to have been eliminated in order to make up for lost time. Silver Tower will house 2,000 of the Region’s civil servants, many of whom are close by in City Center, a building dating from the beginning of this century which is immediately alongside the railway lines on the ‘Rogier’ side of the track.
