Major sale in European District

One of the iconic buildings in the European district of Brussels has very recently changed hands. Square de Meeûs, with a total area of 39,711m² of office and archive space, plus 400 parking spaces, has been disposed of by KanAmGrundinvest fonds, to an institutional purchasing consortium from South Korea.

The building was substantially refurbished some time ago before being let to the European Parliament. For the seller, this transaction represents the sale of its last remaining major property within the framework of its liquidation.

Where the building’s advantages are concerned, apart from its refurbishment, should be noted its proximity (around 200 metres) to Trone metro station (itself currently being refurbished!). It is also around five minutes walk from both the main European Parliament building and from Luxembourg railway station. In terms of neighbouring facilities, many hotels are located in the immediate vicinity, and the Place du Luxembourg, two minutes away, is a vibrant café and restaurant destination.

Finally, there is an ‘aside’ that could have seen one of the world’s most successful companies of recent years develop differently. For a couple of decades ago, when Regus was just starting its incredible development (it’s first ever centre was in Brussels, at Stéphanie Square), the Square de Meeûs building accommodated the ‘Regus Apartments’.
