AMSTERDAM - The shops, marketplace, and part of the parking garage in the Bos and Lommer complex were reopened to the public today.
Municipal district chairman Jeroen Broeders cut a ribbon at Albert Heijn at 8.00 a.m. The rest of the shops were due to open an hour later.
All sorts of festivities are planned in and around the shopping complex on Thursday. Free coffee, chocolate milk and cakes are being given out, a promotional team is handing out free gifts and there will be music all day.
The municipality decided on 11 July last year to evacuate the entire Bos and Lommer complex, including the apartments above the shops, the library, and the city district office after mistakes were discovered in the construction of the building.
The residents were provided temporary shelter for several months and were allowed to return to their home shortly before Christmas. The district municipal office and the library have also reopened.
The shops, marketplace and garage were shut for the longest.
