The Berlaymont building, seat of the European Commission, is a symbolic centre for the European quarter of Brussels, as well as for Europe itself. The Berlaymont building has since 1967 stood as the symbol of the European integration. It was designed by the architect De Vesteland and contains more than 200.000 m². It housed the European Commission from 1967 to 1991, where it was decided to completely renovate the building and remove the asbestos. This was to last more than a decade. Today the building has been inaugurated by Guy Verhofstadt, Belgian Prime Minister, and Romano Prodi, President of the European Commission. The building will house around 3000 officials among them the next Commission and Cabinets.
