'Around the Midi Station' Urban renewal contract
The 'Around the Midi Station' Urban renewal contract is a regional action program on the territory of the municipalities of Saint-Gilles, Anderlecht and the City of Brussels.
This program will finance part of the regional ambitions of the Midi PAD-RPA construction master plan by working as a priority on the density of the network and the improvement and greening of public spaces.
Housing and local and metropolitan facilities will contribute to the social, economic and ecological transition of the quarter and the Region.
