THE CANAL ZONE,
THE TRENDIEST DISTRICT
OF BRUSSELS

If there is one area of Brussels that is attracting a lot of attention, it is the canal zone. Included in the "Canal Plan", it is 14 km long and crosses the Brussels-Capital Region through seven municipalities.

The development of this area is based on three fundamental pillars: meeting the need for housing following the demographic boom the capital is experiencing, keeping economic activity as the driving force of the zone and providing quality public spaces.

In other words, the canal zone is really enjoying truly remarkable support and dynamism for radical and optimal development.

AROUND THE CANAL WHARF,
THE DISTRICT
CONTINUES ITS BEAUTIFUL MUTATION...

The new Beco Park, located on the opposite banks to our project.

This project of 28,000 m² is a broad promenade along the canal that leads walkers to various recreational areas, sports grounds, a large garden with benches, tables, a sandpit and water games, a skatepark with space for various activities, lawns and a wooden terrace.

The Suzan Daniel pedestrian footbridge is being built by Beliris.

Its 60 m span over the canal will link the Quai de Willebroeck to Rue Picard. It will have two separate traffic lanes for enhanced safety: one 6 m wide cycling and pedestrian zone, separating bicycle and pedestrian traffic, and the other for motor vehicles.

The regeneration of the Tour&Taxis site covering a total area of 45 hectares.

The ambition is to develop an exemplary sustainable district. All the activities and projects will revolve around a public park, which will be the largest urban park created in Brussels since the 19th century.

The future Museum of Modern Art, Kanal – Centre Pompidou.

It will bring a different, open and enquiring public to the district and will become the largest cultural institution in Brussels, with 35,000 m² devoted to artistic creation in all its forms. The full opening will take place between 2022 and 2023.

The development of many residential projects, shops and service areas.

The Canal Plan identifies a potential for the creation of some 25,000 housing units and 7,500 jobs, while more than 200 ha of public spaces could be redeveloped. The programme focuses on a mix of urban functions, boosting the economy and productive activities and the provision of housing to meet the needs of the population.

MOBILITY IS UNDOUBTEDLY ONE OF ITS MAJOR ASSETS

  • By bicycle

    On the Quai de Willebroeck side, there is a wide cycle path from the city centre to the Canal Wharf. On the Quai des Péniches side, another cycle path runs along the canal, connecting Canal Wharf directly to the Dansaert district. And if you don’t own a bike, there is a Villo! station right next to the building.

  • By public transport

    The ‘Yser’ metro stop, which serves lines 2 and 6, and tram line 51 is a 10-minute walk from Canal Wharf and gives you access to the entire Brussels public transport network.

  • By car

    There is a direct exit from the Brussels inner ring road to your garage in the Canal Wharf. The Ring motorway is a few minutes’ drive away, taking you directly to Brussels Airport in about 20 minutes.

  • By train

    The Gare du Nord station is 8 minutes’ walk away (650 m). The station offers direct access to the Gare du Midi, where the Thalys, TGV and Eurostar lines take you to Paris, Lille, Amsterdam, London or Cologne. There are also tram services from Gare du Nord station to the city centre and the north of Brussels.
