There is no lack of construction work in the capital of Luxembourg, but the Theater Square it has remained unchanged since the early 1980s. That is now about to change, according to Serge Wilmes, the city’s first alderman.

The square, next to the Capucins theater and home to one of the city’s most central parking garages, is about to be transformed, Wilmes told the Luxembourg herbonce you work in William II Square It’s done.

How exactly does the square, which has the historic church of San Alfonso and the Cinematheque theater- will it change remains a topic of debate among local politicians, and depends on the results of studies, Wilmes said. In any case, the work will not begin before 2024.

“The Place du Théâtre is the forgotten jewel of the capital […] the problem is that [it] it is isolated from the tourist center of the city, visitors go there only by chance. Plus, there’s usually nothing to offer to attract people,” says Wilmes.

Plans are to relocate the parking lot entrance and exit, freeing up space for a food market and possibly a pavilion or restaurants that pedestrians can enjoy. “The plan is to move the new entrance and exit from the parking lot to Boulevard Jean Ulveling,” Wilmes said, referring to the highway that runs from the Côte d’Eich to the Clausen neighborhood.

“Currently, the square has an area of ​​900 square meters. After reconstruction, the area would total 4,000 square meters. […] The idea is to design a kind of food market for the capital,” said Wilmes.

Renovations do not automatically mean there will be more parking space. “Since parking spaces for modern cars have to be larger, in the end there may be even fewer,” Wilmes said.
