[CALL] CRU

by Sophie Gerard in Archives

[CALL FOR INTEREST]

A NEW CONTRACT FOR URBAN RENOVATION
“Simonis surroundings”

 

The Brussels government has assigned a Urban Renewal Contract (CRU) to the districts around the Simonis metro station, straddling the municipalities of Koekelberg and Molenbeek-Saint-Jean. It’s a first for this city district. The aim of this initiative is, in particular, to open up and connect this district to the surrounding neighbourhoods.

The accent will lie on the urban network, as a priority for CRUs and a real challenge for this district, whose urban fabric is fractured by railways and the boulevard Léopold II. Another objective for this district will be to create infrastructures that contribute to the city’s economic and ecological transition.

To assist in this process, perspective.brussels is looking for a team that is capable of developing the fundamental plan for the URC and for the Environmental Impact.

Report (EIR), together with the process of participation and communication that must be established.
The URC development phase must be completed by the end of 2021 in order to launch the implementation phase between 2022 and 2026.
