The World Trade Center of Brussels, Belgium is a complex of skyscrapers at the corner of Albert II Boulevard and Simon Bolivar Boulevard in the Northern Quarter central business district of Brussels. Its three towers are among the tallest buildings in Belgium.

The complex was originally planned to have eight towers, all around the corner of Albert II Boulevard and Simon Bolivar Boulevard. The two of these at the northwest corner of the intersection became the Belgacom Towers and the two at the southwest the North Galaxy Towers.[1] Of the remaining four, two were built in the 1970s, one was built across the street in the 1980s, and the fourth was never built.[1]
