The Brusselse
CANAL ZONE. A
PROMISING neighbourhood.

The Brussels Canal Zone has been undergoing a real metamorphosis in recent years. New bridges and parks, cultural attractions, experience sites like Tour & Taxis and projects like The Banks: the old industrial zone has been transformed into a lively and attractive meeting place. In the future, the neighbourhood will be upgraded even more. The former Citroën site will become the new Centre Pompidou, a major art museum. The old Tour & Taxis freight station – the Gare Maritime – is now a huge market and events hall.

GREEN surroundings
in the
CITY

Soon, Becopark, a wide 3.2-hectare green boulevard, will be located right in front of The Banks Hotel. This will extend over a length of 750 metres, from Sainctelette to the Redersplein at the UP site tower. In total, no fewer than four parks are planned in the hotel’s vicinity, including the large landscape park on the Tour & Taxis site. That park was designed by landscape architect Bas Smets, who is also in charge of the landscaping around The Banks Hotel.
