bssl: tower of financeMay 20, 2007
Nowdays, Brussels City is being refurbished all over its territory. Former mayor of the capital, François-Xavier De donnea, decided in 2003 to top all high-rise buildings that were once Modern icons in the capital of Europe. Brussels had created its own voluntary Ground Zero. One of the last of these icons is the Tower of Finance, which has been treated with a fresh suit and a nice haircut, but it looked a lot like Bagdad last week. The remainings of the gigantesque concrete elevator tower that once stood in front of the out-dated glass giant is now reduced to a hillock of dust, concrete and steel.
