A new retail destination for the autumn
Docks Bruxsel will open its doors on 20 October 2016 in Lower Schaerbeek.

Located on the banks of the Brussels Canal, opposite the Royal Park, Docks Bruxsel has settled into its location beneath the Van Praet Bridge. After three years under construction, the project is now entering the final straight as the finishing touches are applied! The official opening is planned for late October.

More than just a shopping centre

With over thirty different retail brands, the majority of which are large chains that already have a presence elsewhere in Brussels, although some small stores will also set up shop, Docks Bruxsel could be mistaken at first glance for a traditional shopping centre (open from Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and until 8 p.m. on Thursdays). However, it stands out from the crowd by offering space dedicated to culture and events, with eight cinema screens and a 2,500-seat hall will complete the offering. An indoor leisure centre will welcome the young and the young-at-heart, including athletic types and those who just want to have fun, with team activities that combine physical and mental challenges, open every day until 11 p.m.

Docks Bruxsel set itself a challenge of being an environmentally friendly retail destination, and it seems to have achieved its goals, having recently been awarded an “excellent” label.

In concrete terms, this means that the designers to recover excess water from the nearby municipal incinerator to feed the centre’s heating system. 4,500 square metres of photovoltaic solar panels will provide the retail centre with energy and, with its vast glass area of 11,000 square metres, Docks Bruxsel can also save on lighting, while the lighting system itself will also be controllable from inside the stores.
