The World Trade Center of Brussels, Belgium is a complex of skyscrapers at the corner of Albert II Boulevard and Simon Bolivar Boulevard in the Northern Quarter central business district of Brussels. Its three towers are among the tallest buildings in Belgium.
The complex was originally planned to have eight towers, all around the corner of Albert II Boulevard and Simon Bolivar Boulevard. The two of these at the southeast corner of the intersection became the Proximus Towers and the two at the northeast the North Galaxy Towers. Of the remaining four, two were built in the 1970s, one was built across the street in the 1980s, and the fourth was never built. WTC I and II, build in respectively 1972 and 1976 are scheduled for thorough renovation.
In the coming months we will extract from these buildings large quantities of materials, including decorative lighting fixtures, partitions, radiator covers, hardware, sanitary equipment, marble floors and much more. Materials can be bought in bulk straight from the deconstruction site, feel free to contact us for more information. In the course of February, the materials will also be made available trough this website.
PS: the iconic red ceiling elements of the shopping center contain asbestos and will not be salvaged.
Completion: 1972 (Tower I) & 1976 (Tower 2)
Architects: Claude Emery, Architecture et Urbanisme, Groupe Structures, André Polak, Jean Polak & René Stapels.
The new development will be designed by Jaspers-Eyers and 51N4E. Commissioner: Befimmo
