a reinvigorated canal zone

The illustration above shows architectesassoc’s investment alongside one of Brussels’ most active building zones for years to come. Multi-functional ensembles are planned here by public and private sectors hand-in-hand, from housing to care homes to workspaces of all kinds, such as those designed by the studio for Atenor (CITY DOCKS) or citydev (GREENBIZZ). But housing gets the bigger share given the city’s need for new homes : CANAL DISTRICT, CANAL WHARF and QUAI DE WILLEBROEK totalize 300 flats of all shapes and sizes and in all sorts of lively multi-cultural neighbourhoods. Real estate pressure here is intense, justifying the Authorities’ Plan Canal channeling that energy.
