SAU seeks team to consider the conversion of Reyers Tower11 June 2020
The RTBF and VRT transmission tower’s construction in 1979 was a feat of architectural engineering, and the structure has been an iconic landmark in the Brussels cityscape for over 40 years. With its circular saucer 34 metres across and 16 metres deep placed on a central pillar 73 metres high, it has a total height of 89 metres.
However, technological developments mean that it is no longer required for its original purpose. The Urban Development Corporation (SAU), which is coordinating the development of mediapark.brussels around the future new RTBF and VRT headquarters, is therefore launching a call for expressions of interest in conjunction with the Region’s Chief Architect, with a view to appointing an architectural team to consider the conversion of Reyers Tower.
