During October, the Boerentoren underwent a series of captivating developments and discoveries.

A significant progress was the restoration planning of the facade elements, which had endured damage in the fire incident of August 2022. The fire had left the joints between the natural stones discolored. To ensure a faithful restoration, meticulous selection and assessment of samples were conducted to accurately replicate the original.

Further investigations during the month led to the uncovering of previously unrepaired damage, which dates back to World War II. The damage to the connection of the steel beams and facade column will be professionally repaired.
