The Salvador Urban Development Department (Sedur) granted environmental authorization for the demolition of Oxum Casa de Arte, located on Ladeira da Barra. The request for the execution of the work was made by the current president of Bahia, Guilherme Bellintani, who recently acquired the site and is now responsible for the intervention that will be carried out on the site.
The place was founded in 1986 by Nancy Bernabó, wife of Carybé. The store was recently sold to the representative of Tricolor de Aço, along with the entire collection. Among the items available in the store were silverware, sacred art, paintings, prints and objects from the 18th and 19th centuries.
The demolition permit will have a period of two years, with the land having a total of 540 m², with a forecast of generation of demolition waste of 349.05 m³. Despite the demolition having been authorized, Bellintani will only be able to start the works of implantation of a project of “uni-residential building”, already proposed for Sedur, after new authorization. The permission appears in the official journal of Salvador, this Thursday (22).
