'Urban Business Hub' - addressing local social needs in Brussels
Description

This project involves the Brussels Public Social Services Centre renovating the historic ‘Byrrh’ building in the city's Laeken district. The project aims to turn the building into a business centre by developing office areas and workshop spaces.

A cafeteria will also be opened there to cater for both workers and the public.

Results

• the project will encourage new businesses and growing companies to locate here rather than the outskirts of Brussels• the project expects that over 200 jobs will be created, mainly aimed at less skilled local people• the historic character of the building will be protected under the business plan.
