[High streets etc…] : “Saint-Gilles, Brussels” – MONOCLE

Monocle # 64 – June 2013 –  here

Very instructive snapshot on this part of Brussels. Helpful also to  resume typical retail  features l in the whole city :
– A lot of individual houses : difficult to integrate shops except blocking the entire building
– Many green spaces and parks
– Low urban density : surprising spacious places for retail or housing
– Very few food markets : 1 (sometimes 2) by commune
Conclusion : many opportunities for “destination” and innovative retail
