Through the industrial development in Blumenthal and the incorporation of Lüssum, Bockhorn and Neurönnebeck the number of residents has increased fast.
It was also the fact that the management companies could no longer work properly in the offices available at the time because of a lack of space.
The management companies were then housed in an annex of the Ebberfeld house in the then still so-called Lange Straße.
Because of the lack of space, the house of master baker Warnke also provided rooms, until this also became insufficient. When this was the case, a meeting was called to proceed with the construction of a new administration building.
The properties on which usually the administration took place, were bought up.
Then, in December, the proposals for the new town hall were approved and just eight months later, in July 1908, the cornerstone ceremony took place.
In the year 1910, the new town hall was ready, and the administration of Blumenthal could continue there.
The building stands empty since summer 2016.
The local exchange is in the former BWK-arcades, in the Landrat-Christians-Straße 99a, 28779 Bremen.
Moreover, as is widely known, the Bürgeramt is located in Vegesack, at the Sedanplatz.
The town hall requires restructuring, the planning for this is currently ongoing.
