Under an agreement with the City of Brussels, the Brussels-Capital Region and the Port of Brussels, the Urban Development Corporation (SAU) has been appointed as the project manager for the construction of a new concert hall for Magasin 4.
The building, at the corner of Avenue du Port and Rue de l’Entrepôt, will have a total floor space of 890 m2 on two levels.
The SAU’s involvement reflects its role as coordinator of Brussels' development, in charge of the implementation of major urban development projects and, as is the case here, public facilities of regional significance.
- In November 2020, the SAU published a call for expressions of interest with a view to appointing a multidisciplinary team to design the building.
- In January 2021, the SAU selected five teams from among the 46 responses to the call for expressions of interest.
- In May 2021 the SAU has, in consultation with the City of Brussels, the office of the Minister-President of the Brussels Region and the Region’s Chief Architect, appointed the Belgian architectural firm CENTRAL to design the new Magasin 4 concert venue.
