Having enjoyed tremendous growth since the beginning of the century, the shoe manufacturer Bata set up operations in the south of Brussels in 1927 near the famous Wielemans-Ceuppens brewery. Adjoining the site is an industrial building built in 1871 with a typical red-brick façade, large picture windows and extensive floors. This is where the building was constructed, and it has a beautiful Art Deco façade.


JCX Immo acquired the abandoned industrial site in 2004. The architects Art & Build, who managed the renovation project, have produced a style of architecture that incorporates the industrial character into a thoroughly modern vision, with an area of 10,090 m2. Three buildings are built around a tree-lined interior courtyard. The 60 loft-type apartments have large picture windows and a terrace or garden.
