1964 Schunck Heerlen, Promenade

Original size 800 × 630 px

Leo Dohmen writes: “A plan comes up, to expand the Glass Palace to the south (former Emmaplein, now Pancratiusplein) by another glass palace. The then Mayor Van Rooy did not approve and the municipality of Heerlen developed the so-called Squares Plan. This plan set free the church of almost all real estate that Schunck owned, except the Glass Palace. In return, a piece of land at the Honigmanstraat / Dautzenbergstraat / Promenade was offered, where another attractive department store was built of four floors with basement and escalators.”
