This is an exception to the general rule. The Soviets did not burn the church and some adjoining buildings.

Apparently yes. But the tower waits for its turn. The repairs of this church have started only recently (it stood empty for decades after the war).

Are they also going to build on the empty spaces around the church? Like a few reconstructions and modern houses et cetera?

Some of them. You see a corner of a building site covering a whole street block on the left of your modern Tandeta St. photo.

Also some housed directly adjacent to the church have been recently rebuild:

How did this one end up looking so different?

It would appear that the original brickwork survived the war for the most part.

What happened?

It looks like before WW2, gate was 'upgraded' into turbo-german neogothic style, here is pic from 1904:

Theese lines on photo looks like project sheet.
