In the manner of the Bon Marché in Paris, at the end of the 19th century, Francisco Seeber and Emilio Bunge created the Bon Marché Argentino. A place that would offer the latest expressions of world fashion. Thus was born an imposing architectural work, with intersecting streets, glass vaults and a spacious and elegant central dome.
After the economic crisis of 1890, in 1908, a sector of the construction was sold to the railroad Buenos Aires to the Pacific. In 1945 the architects Jorge Aslan and Héctor Ezcurra projected the remodeling of the building, separating the gallery of trades from the offices of the railroad and including the murals in the central dome.In 1989, the building was declared National Historic Monument.Subsequently, it was delivered to Galerías Pacífico S.A. and on May 18, 1992, the magnificent Commercial and Cultural Center was inaugurated, thus beginning the most flourishing stage of that secular and dreamy Bon Marché Argentino.
