Beautification Of Oranjestad Continues

March 29th 2011, Aruba.

Another eye soar in Oranjestad being demolished for a new urban square

ORANJESTAD- The Department of Public Works has sealed off the former Texas Furniture Store complex
in downtown Oranjestad on Monday. The complex which stood empty for many years will be demolished
this week to make place for a luxury urban square. The square will include trees, benches and fountains.
The square will link the downtown area of Oranjestad with the courthouse located north of mainstreet.

The demolishment of the complex and the construction of the square is part of the urban renewal
master plan that the government is presently executing for the island’s capital. The plan has picked up
steam recently with the start of many projects.

At present, the Linear Park is being constructed at waterfront Oranjestad, the water tower is being
renovated, the courthouse is being expanded and renovated, and renovation works for mainstreet have
started early this month. Soon the parking lot behind the Parliament building will be demolished to make
way for the expansion of the Parliament which will include an inner square.
