National Stadium: Brussels open to feasible, compliant proposalsThursday, 28 June 2018 18:11
On Thursday, many newspapers reported on the proposal by Deputy Prime Minister Didier Reynders for the renovation of the stadium, supported by the Besix construction group.
Courtois recalled that at the preceding renovation of the stadium in 1996, many partners had agreed to finance the renovation, including the Parc des Expositions (Exposition Park), Belgium’s Football Fédération and the Federal Government. “I imagine there must be a funding project,” he said. “Why would anyone oppose it, in that case? If it’s a private project, a public tender is required.”
In answer to a question, the First Alderman confirmed that Ghelamco, the promoter of a planned project to build the stadium on Parking Lot C of the Heysel Stadium, still had an appeal pending against the refusal to build the stadium there.
In the case of this plan, which had been turned down, the City had executed a decision taken at another level of the State, the Brussels Regional Government, he explained.
