The project was commissioned Baltass Longen . The project was ready to 1649 year. But the construction has begun in 1667, until they freed the construction site, having demolished the former buildings. By 1682, the construction was, as today they say, "frozen", because Longen died, and the Customer family itself experienced serious financial difficulties. And for quite a long time on the Grande Channel stood an unfinished dominary with forests around the first floor and the non-flavored facade.
