Abstract: Urban renewal in the rear-view mirror Parking '58 in Brussels
The site of Parking ’58, situated at the very heart of Brussels has always played an important role in the economic development of the city. Over the centuries it was
part of the medieval inland port, a fish market in the 17th and 18th centuries and, after the vaulting of the Senne and the conversion of the dock areas in the late 19th century it became the Central Covered Market for general
foodstuffs. In the middle of the 20th century, a multi storey car park was built in order to ensure the accessibility of the city centre to automobiles. On the eve of a new chapter in this story, where the current building will be replaced with a mixed-use structure containing both offices and residential space, this article addresses the changes which this exceptional site has undergone and also looks at the heritage value of Parking ’58.
