A plot of land near South Station has sat empty for many years. The Move’Hub project aims to revive an eighteen-storey residential and commercial tower on the site, which is located partly in Anderlecht and partly in Sint-Gillis. The public investigation was opened this week.
Project developer Immoange (Atenor and BPI Real Estate Belgium) is back with a new version of the Move’Hub project, located between Barastraat, Paul-Henri Spaaklaan and Ernest Blerotstraat.
The new plans, which aim to breathe new life into a site that has been vacant for many years, provide ninety homes and two co-living developments. 64 of the homes are traditional, in collaboration with Brussels-based development company Citydev, meaning they are subsidized and sold at lower prices. Each apartment has a cellar and bicycle space for each room. There will be two hundred bicycle parking spaces.
Moreover, 38,000 square meters of offices and 1,000 square meters of shops will be provided. The plans also include a communal garden of more than 2,600 square meters and an underground parking garage for 140 cars.
The developers bought the site in 2008. They had plans to build one of Brussels’ largest real estate projects: the Victor Tower, which would accommodate 100,000 square meters of office space. A controversial building project that was never realized.
In 2021, the project was renamed Move’Hub. The project is still in the public inquiry phase, which runs until December 10.
