Ellipse Building, Brussels

Located In the North district. It is going to be 85m high and will have 23 floors. The building is flat on one side - so it fits between the other buildings in the North district - and round on the other side. It's not that high but I think that it's good looking. The construction started a while ago. They are already at 6 floors.

It's ok, but it looks like a bigger version of a building thats usually in an office park.

It is good to see that Brussels is abandoning its box shape designs for towers.
and build with more creativity.

Brussel North isn't the only one office district. I like thise place but it doesn't reflect a touch of creativity.

I think that we should focus on the european headquarter at the opposite side of the city in the East side. They have wonderfull projects. I will show you soon pictures of the "Caprice des dieux" the european parliament.
