Green light for the Brouck’R project

Tim Harrup

Developers BPI Real Estate and Immobel have obtained the building permit for the development of the Brouck’R project in one of Brussels’ most historic neighbourhoods. They will transform the former Allianz offices, which overlook the Place De Brouckère, into a mixed project with respect for the Brussels heritage connected to the site, ensuring perfect integration into the current streetscape.

Located in the large pedestrian zone, the site will become a multifunctional urban living space with a lively and dynamic buzz 24/7. It will combine offices, shops with a total retail space of 3,365 m², a 152-room hotel, 162 apartments and 129 student flats. Out of the 43,700 m² of office space in the existing building, only 6,850 m² will remain for office use.

The new complex is designed by Danish architect Henning Larsen and the Brussels-based A2RC Architects. Construction is due to begin by the end of 2021.
