Iconic renovation
The painstaking renovation of the facades and roofs of the former Grand Poste is part of a project to convert this iconic place in Liège into a building intended to house the journalism department of the University of Liège, co-working spaces, start-ups, several business incubators, shops (covered market - short chain), restaurants and cafes, and a microbrewery.

Forging social bonds in the city
“ The project will be the centrepiece of the revitalisation of Liège’s Cathedral-North district,” says Jacques Lefèvre, CEO of BPI Real Estate. “It fits perfectly with the current philosophy of 'BPI Urban Shapers' and our desire for long-term commitment to the urban fabric. The functional diversity of a place like the Grand Poste will make it possible to forge new social bonds in the heart of the city and thus bring a new and dynamic population back to the city centre .”
