Brussels: Turkish community to build new mosque
The Turkish community in Brussels requested building permission for a mosque in Sint-Joost-ten-Node. The new mosque will allow 750 people to assemble, reports Le Soir. This will be the largest mosque since the building of the mosque in the Brussels Jubilee park (1978).
The Consultative Committee gave favorable counsel but made a pre-condition that the volume would be 30% smaller. The plan for the new mosque comes the Union of Islamic Centers in Belgium and is signed by the Vizzion architect agency. The file is now by Emir Kir, state secretary of the Brussels Region charged with urban development.
