Arrival of new tenant brings occupancy of multi-functional office building 'Central' to 100%

Befimmo, a leading player in the real estate sector, is proud to announce the arrival of a prestigious tenant in its iconic Central building, located next to Brussels Central Station. Belgian Shell will move into the building, which is known for its strategic location and extensive facilities, in the spring of 2024. This means that 100% of the total office space in Central is currently let.

Central, Befimmo's flagship building and its own headquarters, is an architectural masterpiece designed by Alexis Dumont in 1931. Located in the vibrant centre of the capital, Central offers a workplace that adapts to the modern needs of businesses. With a mix of office spaces, a Silversquare coworking space, Sparks meeting rooms, a restaurant, a gym and a rooftop terrace with breathtaking views, Central is a model for the hybrid working world. The location ensures strong connectivity thanks to its proximity to various mobility solutions.

“Belgian Shell's choice for Central is a confirmation of our ability to create dynamic and flexible workspaces that perfectly match the vision of such companies," emphasises Jean-Philip Vroninks, CEO of Befimmo. "Central is located in the centre of Brussels, close to one of the country's largest train stations. Companies that take this into account are attractive poles for talent and play an important role in improving the mobility of tomorrow," he adds.

Belgian Shell will move into a space of 860 m² in the spring of 2024. The company's return to the property that once served as the headquarters of the Belgian Shell Company symbolises a historic reunion and underlines the continued attractiveness of the location.
