About the venue

Gare Maritime is a pioneering hub combining unexpected retail, work and hang out experiences, located along the canal in the progressive city district of Tour & Taxis. It is a destination where all businesses are impact-conscious. A place where innovation and artistry open up debate and action, to impact society for the better and to accelerate the pace by leading the way. 

At the beginning of the 20th century, Maison de la Poste served as an administrative centre for Tour & Taxis. It was then, rather appropriately, called Hôtel d’Administration.  It was not until later, in the 1970s, that it became a post office.  On the ground floor, the historical ticket office hall still looks impressive today. The wall lights and hanging lamps you’ll notice when entering the room were designed by Jules Wabbes, one of the most important Belgian interior designers of the post-war period. 

Any activity in the Gare Maritime is green. Sustainability has been key during the renovation works. The building generates its own energy from renewable sources, using geothermics and solar panels. The green boulevards on either side of the nave are lined with themed gardens and tall trees, as if the adjacent park found its way inside.
