Brussels Business Hubs carries out and realises its mission through study, concept, promotion and management of accommodation projects for economic activities in Brussels.
Ateliers des Tanneurs, business centre for start-ups
The Ateliers des Tanneurs business centre is located in the very heart of the city in the Marolles district. It houses around 50 companies that employ almost 200 people.
Along with seven other public business centres, this project is supported by the Brussels-Capital Region and its main target group is start-up companies. Thanks to its location in the priority intervention zone of the Region (ZIP), the companies that are housed in the Ateliers des Tanneurs benefit from privileged regional support (advice, grants and financing).
Ever alert to the need for coherence and transparency, the management of this activity is entrusted to a branch office of Brussels Business Hubs, the Ateliers des Tanneurs business centre.

Ateliers des Tanneurs, long-term accommodation
The renovation of the building from which Ateliers des Tanneurs operates also has larger spaces or spaces that are not suitable for short-term needs of start-up companies.
These spaces have been designed for longer-term accommodation. This is the case for instance of the restaurant that has set up in the ‘halle aux fûts’ and the organic market that has set up in covered market unit No. 1902.
Ateliers des Tanneurs, the location par excellence for organising events
Ateliers des Tanneurs operates from a listed and completely renovated building formerly called the ‘Palais du Vin’. This Art Nouveau building is a perfect example of our extraordinary Brussels architecture. The covered hall and the meeting room provide a wonderful setting for events and it is very popular among professional event organisers.
Brussels Business Hubs has set up and manages the rental side and event organisation. The centre calls on the services of partners whose professionalism, specialisation and complementarity guarantee highly successful events.

The ‘Be-Here’ project – centre for economic urban activities
Thanks to the financial support of the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund), the Brussels CPAS is able to carry out a new renovation project on a listed building with the aim of providing accommodation for economic activities that will generate jobs. This project concerns the former ‘Byrrh’ building in Laeken on the Tours et Taxis site. The building will be converted into semi-industrial units measuring 200 to 1.400 m².
Based on the experience acquired during the Ateliers des Tanneurs project and its close links with the Brussels CPAS, Brussels Business Hubs is able to actively participate in the conceptual development of the Be-Here project.
