Pichilemu City Hall

The Pichilemu City Hall served as the city's administrative headquarters where the Pichilemu City Council meets. It was constructed from 1891 until May 6, 1894.[1][2]

The building was located in the Ángel Gaete street,[3] in a terrain of 1,660 square metres (17,900 sq ft) that descends suddenly from the street level. It was conformed by a 2-floors building, a zócalo, a complementary construction (260 square metres (2,800 sq ft)) and a yard. The yard serves as car parking for the municipality trucks, has a store and the corral municipal.[2]

The building was not constructed for that purpose, and worked as four separate parts rather than one unit.[2]

The Pichilemu City Hall was scheduled to be renovated in 2011, by the Government of O'Higgins Region.[4] According to the Municipality of Paredones, the Pichilemu City Hall "will be completely repaired."[5] Mayor of Pichilemu Roberto Córdova said on a Pichilemu City Council meeting that the new City Hall will be constructed with the earthquake reconstruction funds, and it was expected that by late 2011, the construction work will begin.[6]

The Municipalidad de Pichilemu building was demolished between December 2011 and January 2012. No construction work has begun as of March 2012.
