Brussels launches stadium lease tender

The Conseil communal de la Ville de Bruxelles decided on March 31st to make a market call to award a long-term lease to a private partner to build and operate a footbal stadium in the city of Brussels.

The total surface of the land owned by the City of Brussels amounts to approximately 26 hectares. Over the coming years, the area surrounding the land plot will be used to develop an ambitious real estate development in the context of the development and regeneration of the Heysel Plateau. This will include the construction of a shopping centre, apartments, offices, a convention centre and a hotel in different phases.

The football stadium will be part of the offering for the European Football Championships in 2020 (UEFA 2020). The football stadium, with a capacity of around 50.000 seats, must therefore be completed in time and must meet UEFA requirements. The City of Brussels also requires that the football stadium is used by a football team to hold its home matches.

The public call is divided in two phases: the selection phase and the shortlist phase.The contract is neither a government contract nor a concession for public works - the City of Brussels acts merely as a long-term lessor.The selection guidelines and the annexes are available at request: tenderparkingc@parkingc.comThe closing date for applications is 12 May 2014.Heysel Parking C - Football stadium - Conditional long lease - Public call for tenders - Selection guidelines (PDF, 0,58MB)
