The current hotel complex between Place Rogier and the Botanical Garden (Saint- Josse district), composed of two 4-star hotels, will be completely redeveloped between May 2019 and the first quarter of 2022 by the Swedish hotel property company Pandox.
The first project is the full renovation and refurbishment of the Hilton Brussels City, which is to be renamed "Hotel Indigo" on November 4th 2019 and marks the IHG group brand's début in the city. The second project involves the renovation and potential expansion of the Crowne Plaza "Le Palace", an art deco hotel dear to the people of Brussels.
On the administrative level, the architectural planning for the expansion is under the watchful eye of the Brussels Region Bouwmeester, Kristiaan Borret. The projects will generate many jobs with priority given to Brussels locals.
