It contains 16 social apartments with one to five bedrooms, an office for the Port of Brussels, an out-of-school childcare facility (run by the organisation ‘De Verliefde Wolk’) and the local community centre WAQ with its soup bar and laundrette and a communal garden.

Designed by the firm of architects B612 Associates, the building, which meets passive environmental standards, is the result of collaboration between the Municipality of Molenbeek, Beliris (*) and the regional authorities, all of which were present at the opening ceremony. It falls within the scope of the Ecluse-Saint-Lazare neighbourhood contract.
