On the initiative of Cultureghem asbl (non-profit) and with the collaboration of Abattoir, a number of kids from the Anderlecht quarter of Cureghem were given the opportunity to realize their dream: with recycled materials like pallets and tyres they were allowed to build their own meeting-corner on our site. In their opinion, children living in this city quarter are not being followed properly and therefore get cut loose. Watch the TV-Brussels report.
In relation to the developments on the Abattoir site, Jo Huygh, the Engineer-architect in charge of the co-ordination of the Abattoir Masterplan, made a remarkable statement with regard to the future of well-known Citroën garage in the very heart of Brussels. In an editorial published by the weekly paper "Brussel Deze Week" (This Week In Brussels) on 10 July, he brings his vision on future developments in our capital.

Since September of last year, our Abattoir site has turned into a huge construction site. For building the new food hall, no less than one thousand square metres have been "turned around" by the contractor.We have made an accelerated video film of the on-going works on our site. These works result from an FEDER/EFRO-project concluded earlier. If next winter is mild again, the new shopping complex is likely to be openend around Easter 2015.
