BX1 report of îlot Picard

6 September 2019

"In Molenbeek, housing of different sizes is rented out in a group home.

The block is nestled in the heart of Picard Street in Molenbeek. It includes 19 dwellings divided into 5 buildings. A shared garden of 1000 m² and common areas are at the disposal of the tenants.

From the studio at 650 euros to the 3-bedroom house at 1100 euros, the offer allows a diversity of tenants. The audience ranges from the traditional family or single parent, to the couple or the single person. The idea: to form a diverse community that shares the same desire to create social ties. »
