Location and Transport

If you're looking to locate in an office district close to the amenities offered by the city centre, the Brussels North Quarter is the place to be. With good transport links - including proximity to the North Station, contemporary architecture and design, and a good mix of large and small businesses, it's an ideal space for business.

The office towers and former industrial areas of the Northern Quarter are well-known landmarks in the city and future supply is guaranteed by major projects currently under construction. The district has three distinct office sub-districts.

The first is the Espace Nord. It is home to large office towers (such as the Proximus Towers or the Word Trade Center III) known as "mini Manhattan", many of which have been redeveloped into high quality office towers with increased space for mixed use and new ways of working. Then there is the Botanique district with spacious office buildings, a renowned park and a prime location along Brussels' inner ring road. And finally, the Canal district, where old industrial buildings are being replaced by sustainable office buildings and new office concepts in combination with residential buildings.
