The CDC is a huge stock exchange complex left abandoned somewhere in Belgium. I understand plans are to convert the magnificent building into some hotel, rumour has it ownership has changed hands twice with 2 hotel firms, the recent being within the last few month. The parquet flooring from the centre has been broken up and stacked onto pallets ready for removal and there were some signs of other minor contractor works.
Visited with the 3 men and a little lady tour crew Dystopia, Baron Scotland and Lowri and what a way to kick off the second day and first morning on Belgian soil! This is probably Barons favourite place so one which was not to be missed on the tour, after this being my first visit after having the place on my to do list for quite some time, I can fully appreciate why Baron likes this place so much! We entered under cover of darkness and hid in the basement until dawn when the light was just starting to make its way into the skylights of the main trading floor as we came up the basement staircase!
We spent a good few hours inside and met a couple of local Belgian explorers as the morning went on! It was sad to say goodbye to this place so large there were plenty of rooms I still didn’t manage to cover with the camera which I only saw as I ran around trying to find Dystopia so we could make our exit ;).
Revisit on the cards hopefully if renovation works don’t progress too quickly!
