BRUSSELS | Tour Finances | 200m | 36 fl | U/C

The tour finances is one of the highest buildings in brussels.A spire has been added to the building to give it a final height of 200m , it was 145m tall before and they added two stories. And destroyed the concrete stucture in front of the highrise .



This is the tour finances before renovation

A render of the tower after renovation

And finally a recent picture of the tower

The new glass is nice, but a spire of 55 meters is to high.

It is not as bad as you guys said, but it isn't spectacular either. Such a design belongs to a "filler" builder, rather than a stand-alone building in a skyline.

Some pics taken today from the top of my house since I leve on the other side of brussels I am quite happy to be able to see something




only a part of brussels highrise can be seen on those pics because there is a hill that hidding the others and the tours finance with some other buildings is precisely on that hill
