Cofinimmo has signed an agreement with the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), the EFTA Surveillance Authority (ESA) and the Financial Mechanism Office (FMO) for a long term lease (15 years) on the whole Quartz office building. The agreement will commence following delivery of the works, scheduled in the course of 2020.

The site, located on Avenue des Arts/Kunstlaan, in Brussels CBD, previously included a building that was leased to the Federal Buildings Agency for nearly 20 years. After the building had been vacated in January 2017, it was completely demolished to make room for a new construction that will occupy a central place on the Avenue des Arts. The new project, for which an architectural competition was launched, was fully designed using Building Information Modelling (BIM). Based on transparent architecture, it provides integral glass façades, with a view to the courtyard garden from Rue Joseph II/Jozef IIstraat.

Quartz will offer almost 9,200 m² of modern and modular offices and multi-use surface area, spread over eight floors. The floors will have an unusual clear height of three meters, allowing its users to enjoy a maximum amount of daylight. A terrace will also be set up on the roof. Cofinimmo is aiming for BREEAM Excellent certification (already obtained for the Design phase). The building will comply not only with the 2015 energy regulations, but also with additional high demands in terms of quality and sustainability set out by Cofinimmo for its construction, renovation and redevelopment projects.
