    Other plans for the Presidential House

    The current Presidential House has housed the Executive Power since 1980, that is, since the administration of former President Rodrigo Carazo.The building was conceived as the headquarters of the Ferticacompany and its design was in charge of the renowned Mexican architect Pedro Ramírez Vazquez.

    During the second administration of Óscar Arias (2006-2010) a first attempt was made to settle in the headquarters of the Ministry of Culture. Then an international loan was valued to build offices near the Legislative Assembly.

    In the previous four-year term, a project came to the Legislative Assembly to generate the so-called Bicentennial Civic District. This would cover from 8th to 9th Avenue and from 5th to 23rd Street, for a total area of ​​about 15 km².

    In the area, currently made up of the Cathedral and El Carmen districts, there are already important buildings such as the Judicial Power, the new Legislative Assembly and the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE), with the Presidential House being the great absentee.
