Brussels to build new housing

The Brussels regional government plans to build 6,000 new housing units by 2020 to cope with its growing population. The city estimates that it has about 14,000 new residents every year.

New housing means not only new houses but also higher buildings and a rezoning of some of the city’s office blocks to allow for residential accommodation.

Part of the development will be for social housing projects and for lower income groups.

The plans include tree planting and improvements to public transport.
