The Boerentoren is in a continuous development as well! This month, the deconstruction works from July have been continued: the preliminary demolition of the tower section and the asbestos removal of the ‘foot’ of the tower.

Unfortunately, this month we were also startled by the news that there was a fire in the Boerentoren! A vigilant local resident discovered a smoke development on the fourth floor and immediately alerted the fire brigade. The emergency services arrived immediately, and the fire was quickly under control, which fortunately kept the damage to a minimum. The cause is still unknown.
