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!’
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
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.

“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.
