Otto Engler is asked to design a "house for exquisite clothing for men and boys" by Paul Carsch.
The department store is opened.
The city considers demolishing the building that was damaged in WWII and then used as a cultural center.
The building is listed as a landmark saving it from destruction.
An expert report concludes that it is possible to move the building 23 meters to the east which is necessary for the construction of the subway station Heinrich-Heine-Allee. The costs are eventually borne by the department store chain Horten AG.
The department store is re-opened as Carsch-Haus by Horten AG which later merges with Kaufhof AG.
