Redevelopment of urban blocks in the Marolles
The City of Brussels is launching a new call for submission of projects in the Marolles. Seven public neighborhood spaces and urban blocks (the spaces at the rear of the houses, consisting of private or communal gardens or public green zones) will soon be given a facelift. A budget of 2,200,000 euros will go to creating a network of high-quality, green, permeable and user-friendly living spaces in the quarter.
Within the framework of the Marolles Sustainable District Contract, the City of Brussels, in collaboration with the Bouwmeester, is launching a tender for a project assignment to upgrade various green spaces and public spaces in the Marolles:
Seven spaces will be given a facelift within this project:
- Plaine des Escargots
- small park of the Rue de la Porte Rouge
- urban blocks of the Rue Montserrat and Rue de la Prévoyance
- surroundings of the Marolle school
- surroundings of the social housing at the Rue des Fleuristes and Rue Lacaille
To ensure maximum transparency, the competing teams present their vision and working method during a public session. The advisory committee, that must compose the team, will be present as well. Ultimately, the participatory process and the study itself should start in April 2021.
