The tropical greenhouse will be biting the dust in the coming weeks. Demolition company Hooijer from Renkum has made a start by removing the glass and asbestos from the premises.

The demolition job will take a few weeks because the building is being taken apart rather than knocked down. The metal framework will be literally cut away next week so the greenhouse will be gone by Christmas. The greenhouse on the Arboretumlaan will be replaced by 20 to 25 apartments for starters on the housing market, two-person households or seniors. At the express wish of local residents there will be no place for students in the building.
