Bierger Centre moves to new home
The capital's administrative hub for residents is to move to a new address ahead of an ambitious city centre overhaul.
The Bierger Center at Centre Hamilius will be closed until Tuesday for the move.
From then on, residents will be able to access the same services at the Bierger Centre's new temporary address at 26 Boulevard Royal, where the road joins Avenue Monterey.
The building was formerly occupied by Crédit Lyonnais. From Tuesday, the ground floor of the new residence will host the customer contact area, meanwhile the sixth floor will house management facilities.
The centre, which this week celebrated its tenth anniversary, was opened in 2001 by former mayor Paul Helminger to simplify personal administration for the public. In a recent interview with The Wort, the then out-going mayor described its creation as a “milestone” in his career.
Following the temporary move, the centre will be relocated to its permanent home next to the town hall, in 2013. A police station, housed next to the Bierger Centre, has already been vacated leaving the way open for the building to be demolished.
Anyone with an emergency is urged to call 4796-1 until the centre reopens on Tuesday.
