No, wait, to Andrius Rudamina likes, who was known in 17th century China as Lu An-te (Lu Ande 盧安德, Andrius Rudamina, zi Panshi 盤石, 1594–1632).

And, Yeah, he was not the only one. Those lithuanians and their global thinking.

Konstitucijos 21
There are some rumours in lithuanian miestai.net forum that in the next few weeks demolition of since 90's unfinished and abandoned ghost building will takes place to give way for 17th floor Office building. The other two: hotel and residential buildings will be built in a second phase. It will be the first high-rise building in NCC after Swedbank was finished in 2009. At the moment only one Lvovo 89 building is being built in NCC area located on the opposite side of Lvovo street (that white building in the forth visualisation).

Konstitucijos 29

It seems the NCC is getting a very decent "filler" building. Something that it really needs in order to look like a proper business district.

The winning project by Danish PLH Arkitekter (same people who designed Green Hall which is standing nearby) on the edge of Vilnius NCC.

Construction/completion dates are yet unknown but it probably will go ahead some time soon.

Height: 9 floors/35m
GFA: 16,291 m2
Parking places: 403

Visuals:

So yeah, it seems Vilnius NCC is getting some very decent project and construction action

Konstitucijos 21 is likely to get an official name Quadrum Business City

Demolition of the 20 year-old concrete structure occupying the plot has started

Yes, the tram project is being escalated in the municipality once again. Not sure what is the precise status of the project but there was a recent study and (?) some kind of a technical project... it looks like it may be going ahead this time but then again, it did so back in 2004 or so. My main concern is the money. Vilnius municipality is heavily indebted and I have no idea how and where from they are going to take the cash for it. But we'll have to wait and see I guess.

"Oslo namai"

Another project in the southern part of Naujamiestis (New Town) district, where we can witness a process of redevelopment (albeit slow) of an industrial neighborhood into a densely, perimeter built-up quarters that are obviously more suitable for that location.

Municipality of Vilnius will invest over a 100 mln. Litas over the next 4 to 5 years into reconstruction of 3 streets in the New City Center of Vilnius - that is, expand the engineering and communications network as well as thoroughly change the visual appearance of those streets. Intention of this project is to speed up the redevelopment of New City Center, where so far new development (because of lack of infrastructure) was limited to Konstitucijos avenue.



Lvovo street already had all the infrastructure laid down a few years ago and will only see an addition of decorative elements and Kalvariju street will be reconstructed as part of the Tram project, whenever that will happen. Thus the bulk of the sum will go to Kernavės and Krokuvos streets, that will have to be built from scratch.

Lvovo street




A pedestrian alleyway, a bicycle road, terraces for seasonal cafes and flower gardens will be added.


Lvovo street today:

And in the near future:




A few small squares will be formed around Lvovo street.

Krokuvos street




The present look of the "street" is, to put it mildly, a disgrace for a capital of an EU country.

After the reconstruction, various decorative elements will portray the historic look of the street - e.g. the lighting, imitating the facades of the wooden buildings that will be demolished.

Kernavės street




Reconstruction of Kernavės street, according to deputy mayor Adomavicius, will begin after the work on Lvovo and Krokuvos streets. Bicycle road and pedestrian alleyway with terraces for seasonal cafes and flower gardens will go along the entire length of the street. On the northern stretch of the street, a skate park () will be added.




A new square at the intersection of Kernavės, Daugėliškio and Fino streets will be built.




A tunnel under the Kontitucijos avenue at the southern end of Kernavės street will be built. But that is highly unlikely to happen before the construction of planned Kernavės bridge begins.

Kalvarijų street




A few visualizations of how it will look someday, after the addition of tram line. When will that day come however remains to be seen...




Municipality apparently also sees most Vilnians driving BMW SUV's by ~2020




More valuable historic buildings will be preserved while those of lesser value will inevitably be demolished to make way for new development.

Detail planning of a land plot between Konstitucijos avenue, Lvovo street and the "Quadrum business city" project mentioned a few posts above has begun. The purpose of it is to determine the parameters of an architectural tender that will follow soon after.






The highest building here should reach ~25 floors.

Residential/Commercial buildings deep in the middle of New City Center. A second stage of an architectural tender is now ongoing. Here's a few visualizations of a project that is an obvious favourite to win the tender. The authors of it are "Arches", who are, imho, quickly becoming the prime architectural bureau in Lithuania.

The location:

And the proposal of "Arches" for the project:








Other proposals can be found here.

You forgot to mention, that because of these streets we earn millions of euros as Western movie companies film "authentic Siberia villages" in these districts, lol

These pictures of future redevelopment of Šnipiškės look nice, but I don't expect it to happen before 2020... In 20 years not much changed here, so it will take not less than another 20 maybe...
