For several months now, a building, under construction, has been abandoned on rue du Manège, between the Gorgées drinking bar and the old Manège. A permit for the construction of an apartment building was issued in 2014, but it expired more than three years ago. “This Thursday, the college took the decision to put the promoter on notice following the deplorable image of its unfinished building. This canker, a stone’s throw from the Grand Théâtre and the old Manège, does not at all give a good image of the City while, just next door, the Ville Conviviale project is coming to an end“, explains the alderman of Works, Maxime Degey, in a press release.
A “security” file has also been opened to the City following the regular presence of squatters.
The college therefore asks the promoter to immediately secure its building and restore the premises by demolishing the existing constructions.
