Evere provides convenient connections to the motorway network and direct access to the airport.
Its palpable vitality and a growing population have transformed the urban landscape in Evere. The commune has made concerted efforts to balance housing (especially single-family homes) with enterprise, by encouraging non-polluting cutting-edge industry.


Evere commune is sited along the old Roman road, known as the Cologne road. Located in the northeast of the Brussels agglomeration, Evere covers an area of 5 square kilometres bordered by the City of Brussels ("Quartier Nord" and Haren), Schaerbeek, Woluwe-Saint-Lambert and Zaventem (Sint-Stevens-Woluwe).

Evere is traditionally split into “Lower Evere” and “Upper Evere”.

The "Lower Evere" begins around the Saint-Vincent Church".
The other side of Avenue Léopold III is known as “Upper Evere”, which has developed around Saint-Joseph Church and the Chaussée de Louvain with its many shops and stores. This part of the commune is very green (the park, Brussels cemetery), with wide avenues and imposing apartment buildings.
The large office buildings are clustered around Rue de Genève and especially Rue Colonel Bourg.

With the Brussels circular just along Avenue des Communautés and Avenue Léopold III, Evere is the perfect jump-off point for the national motorway network (E40 Ostend-Liège-Cologne, E19 Antwerp-Mons-Charleroi-Paris and E411 Namur-Luxembourg). There is also direct access to the airport.

Chaussée de Louvain and Chaussée de Haecht are also two very important main roads with lots of shops. Evere also harbours four semi-industrial zones for non-polluting industries, which provide a growing number of jobs.
