Public space, renovation

The colonnade exists as a unique connecting element between the railway infrastructure and the Avenue Fonsny in Saint-Gilles. Within the framework of the “Avenue du Roi” Urban Renovation Contract, the colonnade is identified as a link in the network of future open spaces and mobility infrasructures in the Avant-Senne. It is intented to symbolize an entry and exit point for the future linear park of the Avant-Senne from the Tunnel des Vétérinaires to the Avenue du Pont du Luttre in Forest.

The municipality of Saint-Gilles is looking for a multidisciplinary team for the minor renovation and the enhancement of the qualities of the colonnade. On the one hand the aims are to respond to the challenges of the Urban Renovation Contract, to enhance the sense of security of its users by renewing the lighting, to improve the cleanliness of the site and to resolve the conflict of use between pedestrians and cyclists. On the other hand, the municipality wants to address the relationship with this under-exploited space by adding features such as a wall for free expression, artistic or playful elements.
