The most lavish street in Brussels has once again made the headlines
In the aristocratic Koningsstraat, with its stately buildings, historic gems and political nerve centres, project developer Vercity has launched a new construction project at Rue Royale 33. The prestigious office building hidden behind the historic facade of number 33 is being converted back into residential units above royal supplier BODART optician’s shop on the ground floor. The facade is also being given a complete facelift.
The ground floor will continue to house commercial space. We are also developing two office units of 225m² each that will be connected by a green patio, where employees can enjoy their lunch or break outdoors. The office space will be available for lease or sale. Fifteen apartments will be housed on the upper floors of the building. The extra floor to be added to the roof level of the existing building will contrast beautifully with the original architecture of the building and offer views of the Brussels city centre. The entire building will comply fully with the latest fire safety standards that apply to all new buildings. Affordable residential property in this neighbourhood is few and far between, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to become part of this historically unique area of Brussels!
The world at your feet
Located in the historic heart of Brussels, Rue Royale 33 is in good company. Within walking distance are the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, with their impressive collections, the De Zavel antique market, the Grote Markt, considered one of the most beautiful squares in the world, as well as various European institutes. The European Parliament is right around the corner, the Warande Park with the Royal Palace is across the street and inviting traditional Brussels cafés, great restaurants and shops can be found in nearby streets. It is also a neighbourhood that continues to evolve. The new headquarters of BNP Paribas Fortis, for example, are being built on Warandeberg. This iconic project with a capacity of 4,500 workspaces will be completed in 2021.
This neighbourhood is the perfect base for urban living in and around the city, not only for city natives, but also expats and tourists. The property is only a two-minute walk from the metro, 500 metres from the central railway station, 7 minutes by car from the E40 motorway and only 12 km from the airport. At Rue Royale 33, you have the world at your feet!
So much more than an apartment
Apart from the commercial space on the ground floor and offices on the first floor, a total of thirteen one-bedroom apartments and two high-end penthouses with two and three bedrooms, respectively, and spacious private terraces will be available. The comfortable modern and smaller apartments are appealing for investors, singles and young couples, while the two penthouses are sure to attract those looking for an elegant property located centrally in Brussels. Private storage areas are available underground, where the household rubbish bin and shared bicycle parking facility are also located.
Personal guidance from purchase to completion
As with all of its projects, Vercity maintains the characteristic features and historically unique elements of the building: the aristocratic architecture, majestic stairway, traditional lift, marble fireplaces, original heating elements and cathedral ceilings (as high as 5 metres). These traditional elements are combined with modern comfort and the latest building standards. New windows and floors, for example, will be added and the walls thermally and acoustically insulated. Access control by means of a badge system will be incorporated and all sustainable features will translate into a low, indexed EPC (energy performance certificate) that guarantees easy leasing and low energy consumption. The finishing details of each unit are determined by the resident in coordination with carefully selected suppliers. Both investors and those interested in the apartments for personal use will be delighted with the extensive finishing options. The apartments will be finished fully paint-ready or in turnkey condition. Those interested in a worry-free investment can be brought into contact with an all-inclusive leasing and management service.
An experienced advisor will guide you through the process.
