For this edition of Urban snaps, we share the photo near the Gare Maritime, a space located behind Tour & Taxis.

“My first coffee here will taste so good”, states @wiart321, a Brussels-based architect who shared this photo on Instagram. The photo was also shared by Laeken-Brussels Instagram account which loved this idea.

We totally agree with this vision and so much looking forward to the renovation works around Tour & Taxis area with the magnificent Gare Maritime.

There have been already numerous proposals for the large area located behind Tour & Taxis.

How well do you know this area? We suggest a walk in the industrial zone around Tour & Taxis in order to fully grasp the possibilities for urban renewal of Brussels. A lot of new developments are already happening in this area and we hope that most of them will contribute to the increasing livability of the neighborhood.
