The Urban Development Corporation SAU has appointed the consortium BAM Interbuild - Groven+ to construct the Frame building, the future showcase for mediapark.brussels, whose occupants will include BX1 and the IHECS Academy. The consortium BAM Interbuild - Groven+ has been selected following the European public procurement process launched by the SAU in 2020 to choose the general building contractor responsible for implementing this important stage in the development of mediapark.brussels. Gilles Delforge, the SAU’s Director, noted that ‘Frame will be one of the first new buildings to be inaugurated as part of mediapark.brussels. In view of its location, at the corner of Boulevard Reyers and Rue Colonel Bourg in Schaerbeek, it will be a flagship building in this new creative Brussels district dedicated to the media that the Government of the Brussels Region plans to create, and whose operational development is being coordinated by the SAU. Given the integration of various operators and multiple functions and services within the same building, Frame will also be a kind of ‘miniature mediapark.brussels’ – a showcase for the new district.’
The new construction project relates to a total floor space of 8,157 square meters (one basement level, the ground floor and five upper floors). It is supported by the European Regional Development Fund
The SAU plans to start work in June 2021. The building should be finished and ready for its occupants to move in by 2023.
