New head office for the SNCB

This two-phase project initially consists of transforming existing buildings on Avenue Fonsny into an office building that will become the new head office of the SNCB and a hotel. The new head office of the SNCB is the first creation in Belgium by the renowned OMA architectural firm and will be particularly environmentally efficient with a BREEAM Excellent certification. In the second phase, all of the SNCB’s current offices in the vicinity of the Brussels Midi train station will be transformed into a new neighbourhood that is home to offices, housing, retail premises and facilities. These transformations will help to instill a new dynamic in the neighbourhood around the Brussels Midi train station by making it more welcoming, pleasant and lively at all times of day.
