Opened in 1900, the bridge made this prime property, which is why Klotild Maria Amalia, a grand duchess, bought the land in 1899 and asked two architects, Korb Floris and Giergl Kalman, to build a pair of palaces. They complied, thoughtfully naming the place the Klotild Palace and putting ducal crowns up top. The buildings in 2011 were under renovation by an Italian firm transforming them into a combination of retail spaces, offices, and residences.
