One of the top 20 most interesting buildings in San Jose, Costa Rica is the crumbling Botica Solera art-deco style building in Barrio Mexico. The municipality of San Jose has announced that $25,000 worth of emergency repair work will begin shortly to save the building from rain and vandal damage.
In 2006, the mayor of San Jose had promised this building would be restored and converted into a library. After battling with the ownership, 24 people in total, repairs can finally move forward. This immediate work is expected to be finished by the end of 2011. Time will tell when a full restoration will take place, $200,000 was alloted for the project.
Once an old drugstore, this building’s intrigue factor is it’s triangle formation. It forms a peak at a main intersection and juts back towards the south. Botica Solera joins Casa Jimenez on the list of recent rescue repairs being carried out in San Jose. It is best to visit this building by car as it’s a precarious neighborhood for tourists and locals alike.
