Molenbeek was once a village in the countryside, which evolved into an industrial suburb, that in turn became the densely populated commune it is today. This commune has spent much effort to restore its urban balance as much as possible. Molenbeek is working on its future through trial and error. The neighbourhood of the canal has become trendy; cultural players settle in the neighbourhood. But the local population must also be considered.
