Proximus Towers

The manifest Proximus Towers in Brussels North wel be transmitted into a multifunctional and future-oriented place. The redevelopment plans are part of the new vision of the Brussels Region to transform the North Territory into an accessible and connecting neighborhood. With a significant number of residential units and a mixture of offices and a wide range of public spaces, the iconic spot will transform from a place that is only open during office hours into a vibrant destination that is alive 24/7.

A major goal of this redevelopment is to reconnect the site with city life and the neighborhood. The current barrier between the public space and the building will be removed by changing both the structure and function of the towers. The base of the towers – an office tower and a residential tower – will be moved back, thus creating more than 2,250 m² of additional space for the neighborhood. A town square at ground floor level will be the new heart of the complex, with a large architectural staircase that connects the plinth with the offices above.

In line with UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) and the Green Deal, the redevelopment will be an excellent example of sustainable urban development and complies with the highest climate and sustainability standards. At least 75% of the existing structure will be retained to reduce the need for new materials and the carbon footprint of the project. In addition, existing materials will be reused or recycled on site or elsewhere as much as possible. The project will be carbon neutral in operation.
A total of 1ha of green space will be added, including a public roof garden and skygardens on the 13th and 23th floor. The vegetation program will make the building breathe and increase local biodiversity. Mobility around the site is being rethought, with priority given to soft mobility solutions.
