  • In the original design the external concrete elevator core would have had a marble façade. However those plans were dropped because of the high cost involved.
  • The Belgian Ministry of Finance sold and leased back the building to the Dutch Breevast Holding Company for 27 years in 2002 for €200 million (US$262 million as of December 2004).
  • The building has more office space than any other in Belgium.
  • The antenna mounted on top of this skyscraper serves the two Belgian (Flemish and Walloon) national television stations, and used only for digital broadcast.
  • This antenna is an addition to the antenna of VRT Toren.
  • Two years in the making, a final agreement to renovate was signed in November 2004 with work starting January 1, 2005. The facade was replaced by a light blue and white curtain wall. External lifts were moved inside the building. The space lost by this move was compensated by a new 11-storey building.
  • The first part of the renovation involved stripping the building to its concrete structure whereafter all asbestos will be removed.
  • The original design (before reconstruction) had a helipad on its roof.
  • The renovated building provides office space for around 4,600 workers which represents an increase of around 1,400 spaces compared to the building prior to renovation.
  • The tower was sold for 1.2 billion euro by real estate investors Breevast and ZBG to the South-Korean firm Meritz Securities Co Ltd.
