thumb The Résidence de la Cambre is the first high-rise building ever built in Ixelles (Brussels). It was built in 1938-1939 according to the plans of architect Marcel Peeters in a style inspired by New York Art Deco architecture. The 17-story residential tower, which stands on Boulevard Général Jacques,20 / Generaal Jacqueslaan,20 near the Place de l’Étoile / Sterrenplein in Ixelles, was classified as a historical monument on July 14, 2005. In April 2007, EUR 740,000 were granted by the government of Brussels-Capital Region for renovating the façade and roof.

The Résidence de la Cambre is a short walking distance from the Abbey of La Cambre / Ter Kameren and the eastern shores of the Ixelles Ponds, a part of Brussels particularly rich in outstanding Art Deco architecture.
