INAUGURATION OF ONE OF THE
MOST SURPRISING BUILDINGS IN BRUSSELS!
The COOP, a 5.099m² site bordering the canal in Anderlecht, opens its doors this Monday 3 October 2016 in the presence of Mayor Eric Tomas, Ministers Rudi Vervoort, Didier Gosuin, Fadila Laanan and Pascal Smet, representatives of citydev.brussels, the ERDF Fund, the Port of Brussels, Abattoir SA, architects, the chairman of the cooperative company with social objectives Anderlecht Moulart, Fabrice Cumps, and the COOP director José Menéndez.
The former Moulart mill has been completely converted into an economic and cultural centre, both a place of work and learning.
COOP is the exceptional restoration of an old industrial site by the architectural firm Bogdan & Van Broeck.
And on the rooftops you have a panoramic terrace offering a breathtaking and unprecedented view of Brussels, spanning 360°.
COOP Entreprises is dedicated to hosting some 20 companies, in an original working environment. COOP Discoveries is also organised around a permanent exhibition on the canal, workshops and a river innovation project.
Based on partnerships between public and private stakeholders (municipality of Anderlecht, citydev.brussels, Brussels-Capital Region, ERDF, Brussels French-speaking government -Cocof, VGC, Abattoir SA, Port of Brussels) and developed by the Euclides centre, COOP is a dynamic, participatory, urban and economic revitalisation project.
