Ministry of Culture to come out with legislative initiative on  maintenance of 100-year-old buildings 

ArmInfo. Following the explosion of the first printing-house building, the Armenian Ministry of Culture will come out with a legislative initiative to qualify the 100- year-old buildings as a cultural value, Minister of Culture Armen Amiryan told reporters on November 7.  

"After the relevant document is adopted, the owners of the  100-year-old buildings shall maintain them as cultural monuments,"  Amiryan said, noting that he has already given the relevant  instructions related to elaboration of the draft law.   

To note, following the demolition of the first printing-house  building, Armen Amiryan said that the building was of no  architectural value, because it was not included in the list of the  buildings considered historical heritage.   

To recall, on October 27, NorTekhShin company demolished building  No.65 in Hanrapetutyun Street in the center of Yerevan by means of  blasting operations. The fact has sparked public outcry. On October  31, the consultation chaired by Armenian Prime Minister Karen  Karapetyan covered the issue of the demolition. "This is not a field  for experiments. Is this a military training area? The impression is  that anyone in this city does what they want," Karapetyan Karapetyan  said with indignation. The Prime Minister was told that in July 2016  the owner of the building - Astoria-invest - received a permit from  the Municipality to design a hotel in that territory. Previously, the  Municipality provided the same company with a permit to demolish the  building by means of explosion. The construction company failed to  inform the relevant structures of the planned blasting operations.  Karapetyan instructed applying severe punishment against those  involved in the blast operations.
