Möbius II is one of a pair of resolutely environmental and contemporary elliptical office towers in the heart of the North District. As a reminder, Allianz group is planning to move its headquarters to the Möbius I Tower of this complex in late 2019.

A shared vision for the North District:

The building is planned to have a surface area of 34,000 m² above ground, 23 floors, 172 parking spaces and a height of almost 100 metres.

"The 'Möbius' project, of which tower II is a part, reflects our desire to participate in the renewal of the North District and to develop our projects such that they lead to ambitious, efficient and sustainable buildings." says Marnix Galle, Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of Immobel.

And Louis de Halleux, Co-Managing Director of Fidentia, adds: "We are delighted to take part in this emblematic project by taking up a role in the development of Möbius II. This is a major development that will certainly mark a turning point in this high potential area. Möbius II, in addition to meeting all the current criteria for sustainable and responsible office development, will be particularly well located, a stone's throw from Brussels-North train station and all the urban mobility connections."

A brief overview of the project:

  • 34,000 m² of new generation office space
  • Strategic location in the heart of the North District
  • Exceptional architectural and environmental quality
  • Möbius I tower will soon be occupied by Allianz as a direct neighbour
