From the 19th century, the Marolles was a neighbourhood where poverty ruled and social unrest prevailed. As an immediate result, Rue Blaes and the fire station were constructed. In the longer term, programmes of social housing were implemented. That's why the Marolles offers an overview of all types of social housing from 1899 to present. Nowadays, the Sablon district is expanding into the Marolles and the neighbourhood is welcoming more and more middle class and wealthy people. This social mix is the basis for a very dynamic community, popular workingclass and intellectual, that is open to urban renewal and offers facilities such as a youth counselling service and a shelter for the homeless.
