Le Tri Postal


Until 1998, it was a large postal sorting center in Brussels. Tri Postal, located next to the Gare du Midi in Saint-Gilles, has been empty since that date. Reconstruction to the new headquarters is planned for 2023. Meanwhile, 1340 m² of unused area is occupied by temporary functional fillings.
