Rescue plan for Cinelandia in the making
WILLEMSTAD - There is a Memorandum of Understanding in the making for the Cinelandia building in Punda. This was recently announced by the Minister of Spatial Planning Suzanne Camelia-Romer.
Last week the Minister already gave some information on her Facebook page that there was a rescue plan in the making. The Minister was at an advanced stage of discussing this project with the owner of the property, business Fernando da Costa Gomez.
Da Costa Gomez has been the owner of the building for years but has never wanted to do anything with it. Meanwhile the building has not been a pleasant site for the eyes in the beautiful historical city of Willemstad.
Cinelandia building has a protected status because of its unique Art Deco style.
