The building, standing at 137 meters high, will be composed of:
It will include 168 parking spaces, including 30 locations exclusively for motorcycles and 221 covered spaces for bicycles. There are also 1,450 m² of archives and +/- 40.000 sqm office space. Additional car parks may be available in the immediate vicinity thanks to our subsidiary Interparking.
The construction will fit harmoniously in the development of this area (including tall buildings) and will create thanks to its design, one of the major attractions of the future Saint-Lazare Place, which will be refurbished by the developer as part of its urbanism burden.
Located between the two tunnels crossing the rail junction north-south, the building will participate in the revitalization of these two arteries leading to the small ring.
At 200 meters, the underground station Rogier is one of the busiest stations in the Brussels network.
It is situated at the intersection of lines 2 and 6 (around the heart of Brussels) and North-South lines (pre-metro).
The area will also benefit from a thorough planning. The proposed development of the Saint-Lazare Place is to rework its surroundings, sidewalks and floors to promote spaces for pedestrians and cyclists. The square is pedestrian friendly.
On one side, the City Center: At 250 meters from the tower, you find the Rue Neuve, the largest pedestrian shopping street in Belgium (52,000 persons per day) and City 2, the largest urban shopping center of Belgium (51,000 sqm).
The Silver Tower will really be at a stone's throw from the bustling city center.
On the other side, the Northern District: This is the most dynamic and modern office space of Brussels, where the towers stylize urban landscape and where you find both large administrations and public and private companies such as Belgacom, Flemish Community, the Federal Government, Dexia, ...
Less than 200 meters separate the Silver Tower from the NCC, the Northern Communication Center , the largest public transport hub in Belgium.
The Silver Tower will be the first passive tower under construction in Brussels.
The passive standard is achieved thanks to the following developments:
The architects for the project are the Atelier d'Architecture de Genval and Accarain & Bouillot.
"Taking advantage of its particularly favorable position in terms of visibility, the building SILVER TOWER enjoys stunning views over the city center on the one hand and the northern district of Brussels on the other.
The building is based on the principles of sustainable investment, particularly in terms of saving energy and operating costs.
The facades actively contribute to this end. The windows offer excellent thermal insulation performance and a powerful sun protection factor. The general appearance, which is slightly reflective and silver, creates a beautiful effect between the sills and the windows and gives the building an appearance of great purity.
The architectural treatment of the exterior of the building gives it a unique character. The vertical modulation increases the extension of the facade and emphasizes the desired “veil” effect.
The base of the building is clearly identifiable, especially through the sculptural aspect of the support columns. Its facade, provided with clear glass, offers full transparency and allows seeing the trains through the building.
At the foot of the building, the future Place Saint-Lazare will act as a court giving access to the main hall and a space for commercial activities.”
