The permit for the renovation of the Brussels Stock Exchange and the transformation of this iconic building into the Belgian Beer World has been granted by Brussels Minister-President Rudi Vervoort and the Mayor of Brussels, Philippe Close.
The City of Brussels has chosen to give this significant building a new direction by opening it up to the Brussels people. The concept is to design a new public space with restaurant, bar and retail spaces, while ensuring respect for the heritage of this remarkable building. The public will also enjoy a brewery with a roof terrace as well as an experience around beer: the Belgian Beer World, which will occupy the former offices of the 2nd and 3rd floors.
“The aim is for the inhabitants of Brussels to reinvest this mythical place. The project to develop the Brussels Stock Exchange aims to create a new gallery linking the Grand-Place to the Dansaert district, thanks to the opening of the monumental nave of the building to the general public,” said the Mayor of Brussels.
For Rudi Vervoort, this new initiative is one of those that will really create added value for the Brussels Region. “Beyond the direct jobs created for the benefit of the people of Brussels, this new, very original assignment of the Bourse building, with its exceptional heritage and tourist appeal, will make the whole of our capital shine and will be a significant attraction for tourism.”
Mather & Co is excited to start the delivery of the Belgian Beer World experience as part of this fantastic flagship project for Brussels.
