Facts

  • The whole complex was built in only 13 months.
  • This residential complex with shopping mall was one of the first of its kind in The Netherlands. It also had the first subterranean parking garage.
  • In 1983 and again 1985 the mall was subject to a large fire. After the fire of 1985 a major renovation was carried out.
  • During the fall of 2011, an increasing number of pillars of the parking garage showed cracks due to subsidence of the soil underneath. The shopping mall above the parking garage and all the residents of the neighboring Homerusflat were evacuated in November. Demolition of the parking garage and a great part of the mall started immediately, as a total collapse of the shopping complex seemed inevitable.
