On Friday 24.06.2022 the final inauguration of the project took place on both sites, on the Pieremans playground and in the alleys of the Cité Hellemans. For that occasion Alive Architecture and BRAVVO painted a playful promenade on the ground that allowed participants to discover the site of interventions as well as a series of animations that took place during the inauguration. Those include a BBQ, the projection of the of a short movie about the project, a balcony planters workshop, a soccer field, several games for children to play as well as a workshop to paint the large urban furniture. As the inauguration took place as part of the AJointPlace the partners of the A-Place project painted the urban furniture in collaboration with the local children.

Brussels Housing Institution is the manager of several social housing blocs within the city of Brussels, including both social housing complexes of the project and the playground itself
