Up to 3,200 new jobs in new Broeklin work-shopping district – Machelen

The new Broeklin project, designed by ORG Permanent modernity, will be a mix of offices, shops, catering and training centres, a ‘work-shopping district’ as the developer calls it. The project is the successor of what was originally set to become Uplace. Construction of the mega-shopping complex was in the end not authorized following cancellation of the building permit at the end of 2018. The first stone of the new project should be laid in 2021.

According to VUB research, Broeklin could create around 3,200 new jobs in the Flemish periphery around Brussels. This would be a major boost for Vilvoorde and Machelen where 10% of the labor force is unemployed. This is 2.5% higher than the Flanders average. Additionally, in this airport region the impact of the corona crisis is particularly significant.
