Covent Garden, Brussels

New Building located in the North district in Brussels, next to the Dexia-Tower. The building has a lower building of 10 floors and a higher building of 26 floors (100m).

the white building on the right looks taller but it isn't at all! It stands on a hill.

I think it's really time for Brussels to develope more urbanism. Highrise contructions will bring a monumental atmosphere that it misses right now. The center of Europe will be great
