The building is located in the prestigious neighbourhood of the Belgian royalty, next to the beautiful "Parc Royal" and the Cathedral St Gudule. The Colonies street also leads over the small ring road of Brussels into the famous Loi street with its numerous office buildings of the European Community.
The Brussels Central Station is the busiest railway & metro station in Belgium and one of three principal railway stations in Brussels, but handles primarily domestic traffic. First completed in 1952 after protracted delays caused by economic difficulties and war, it is the newest of Brussels' main rail hubs.
The building has been completely renovated and extended in 1995. It represents a perfect combination of modern technical requirements and ancient architecture. The neo-classical extension of the "Malfait Building" and its transformation are in perfect harmony with the other buildings of the neighbourhood like the Royale Belge, the Cathedral of Saint Michel and town houses of the 18th century. The central part of the building includes an atrium of 10 x 10 m starting from the second floor allowing to use all space efficiently. A glass dome roof has been installed on the top of this 6 level high atrium. A part of the ground floor offers commercial spaces. There are eight floors of offices and five underground parking levels.
