The Belgian business world still asks for personal meetings, and there is a great need for an inspiring place to meet each other. Tribes serves the national and international market in Brussels with three existing location, and now takes a prominent place in the center with the new location on the Rue des Colonies. Chief and founder of Tribes, Eduard Schaepman about the new location: ‘it’s not only our first location in the center, but it’s also another location with history: I’ve worked there on a daily basis for one of my former employers in 1999. I know the neighborhood, with all the restaurants, the beautiful church and the station. It’s a great location!’

Focus Benelux

Since the launch in May 2015 Tribes has opened 15 locations in the Netherlands, one in Germany and four in Belgium. Schaepman indicates that the focus will be on the Benelux's rollout in the coming year: "The startup market in Belgium is growing and there’s an increasing demand for inspirational workplaces. In addition to the young entrepreneurs, corporate companies are also looking for more flexible workplaces. We’re happy to provide them with their needs, and we expect to be able to realize a lot of locations in Brussels’.

Rue des Colonies

The first Tribes location in Brussels was opened on Avenue Louise in December 2015 and the second location on Avenue Marnix in October this year. The location at Brussels Airport and the new one on Rue des Colonies were both advised by the commercial real estate services company Cushman and Wakefield. The Rue des Colonies is very centrally located, near the station and next to the beautiful Parc Royal and the Saint Goedele Cathedral. The famous Colonies street also leads to the famous Loi street, with numerous European Union office buildings.

Bertrand Cotard, Partner Office Agency comments “This is the second time in a row Cushman and Wakefield advises Tribes in its expansion plans in Belgium. We have been actively involved in the opening of the PassPort location at Brussels Airport and the Colony Square. Both are landmark locations and we are very proud we are involved in the expansion plans of this successful and ambitious company”.

Both locations will open in 2018.
