This former Roman Catholic church dates from the 1920s, but in the early 2000s the congregation moved out due to a lack of worshippers. The episcopate decided to level the church, but the local government prevented demolition as the building is a listed historical monument. In 2004, the church was briefly inhabited by squatters, but they were eventually removed by riot police. Shortly after that, a large real estate company bought the building, but due to the economic crisis they sold it to a wealthy businessman in early 2011. The current rumour is that the Chassékerk will be converted into a cultural centre, but for now that's just speculation.
