THE FAMOUS ZUID LAMBERMONTPLAATS: Less than 80 years after the start of the development of
the South neighborhood,
Statue and fountain at Lambermont Square
the decline started with the closure of the Hippodrome in 1958. In 1965 the South station was demolished, in 1968 the docks were filled and in 1973 the Hippodrome building was demolished as well.
Together with the loss of landmarks and harbor activity, many people left the area, also due to the deteriorating state of the houses. In 1990, only 23000 people lived in the area, compared to 50000 in 1920. Fortunately, the neighborhood survived: plans designed in the seventies by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill to demolish the whole of the South and replace it by a cluster of North side of the Filled-in docks
skyscrapers where never realized.
