The re-laying of Goswin De Stassartstraat marked the conclusion of major interventions in the public space in the center of Mechelen. This street links the heart of the city – the Wollemarkt next to St. Rumbold’s Cathedral – to its conscience – the Dossin barracks on the river banks. Goswin De Stassartstraat forms the backbone between these two locations, with major and picturesque streets leading off it, such as Schoutetstraat and Sint-Janstraat, the St. John’s Church area and the entrance to Hof van Busleyden museum.
Goswin De Stassartstraat plays an important role when it comes to access to the city. Together with Sint-Katelijnestraat, the street is a major part of the parking belt in this part of the city, which makes it a calling card for the city. The street is also flanked by a number of extremely beautiful old and new residences. Not only the superstructure is to be revamped, but significant work is also required for the sewerage system
