(ADW) Demolitions teams have swung into action in Luxembourg City, wiping the well-known Hotel Rix from the Boulevard Royal landscape, but what will be built in its place?

Apart from the mammoth Royal Hamilius project, the face of Royal Boulevard in the heart of Luxembourg City will change on the other side of the road too in the coming years with projects such as the hotel’s replacement.

The famous Hotel Rix has become one of the “victims” of change and demolition has already commenced. A permit to raze the building to the ground dated October 9, was acted on for the first time on Tuesday, explained the City’s commune administration office.

Hotel Rix was actually closed in October 2012 and has been empty ever since. In its place a new building will become home to  a large amount new office space. It will actually fill the entire gap that can currently be seen on Boulevard Royal.
