Not bad at all - Ambrasas has created a really good design company.

Ukraine was a part of GDL. Maybe that's why you can find few correlations between some Ukrainian symbols and this one.

First time, after a lot of years, Vilnius has a positive natural population growth - There were 176 more babies born than there were deaths in first 6 months of this year.

Vilnius county however still has a negative natural population growth of -706, but that is almoust 60% less than last year.

Last year Vilnius county had an overall growth of 200. That is ofcourse not that much, but atleast it's going into very much the right direction.

From what perspective you are considering it awesome?

It creates mixed feelings in me. I like highrises so it is very rarely I would say highrise is ugly, but on the other hand copy-paste is something I do not admire because it is cheap. If one of the towers would stay as it is, but the rest would differ I wouldn't say a word, but now I am sure it there is vast space for improvement of visuals here. Am I right?

I think the building is pretty sleek, ascetic, and futuristic. Overall quite tasteful but of course only the time will tell how well it holds.

There are currently more proposed, approved and U/C residential, office and shopping buildings than Vilnius can actually handle in near future. Currently there are more shopping and office space U/C than ever in history of the city. Plus investors are scared that economical situation will get worse. So now we don't get many big new project proposals. The latest proposed biggest projects which I know of are two congress centers (one at the very city center which involves reconstruction of Sport palace) and water sport complex (no renderings yet).

Slump is not the right word. Stagnation (of the GDP growth) - ~4-5%. The result for the IQ was +7%, for the IIQ - +5.3%. You tell me if that's a slump.

Growth of the GDP should decrease for 2008 and 2009. 2009 will be the worst year. The stagnation will continue for ~2 years. Starting at 2010, 2011 at the latest, we will get back on track.

Situation now is better than in Estonia and Latvia but we are following our neighbors and I think that the end of this year and also next year will be worse. Most likely there will be no economic slump (at least I hope so ) but growth will slow down for sure.

Ok I see, of course "slump" wasn't the right word to use, especially for a EU member

Nothing particularly that much is u/c now. I'd say, the most interesting are:

National stadium
Swedbank headquarters in NCC
Rulers palace
Indeco offices
YIT highrises in western center
Ozas shopping mall
Panorama mall
Vyrokas residentiall in NCC
Ozas residentials and offices
Greenhall highrise
Kempinski hotel
National gallery
Development in Sunrise valley knowledge economy center
Last meters of Gediminas avenue u/rc

and rather lot of stuff not worth mentioning...

However, there are a lot of projects being prepared for actual development as we speak. Most of them are really big and after their completion, face of Vilnius might change rather dramatically.

Preliminary population growth of Vilnius in first half of this year is 1277, if second half will be similar the growth in this year will be 2500+. The growth numbers start to look more serious. Interesting that total growth consists not only of positive migration but also positive natural growth. I've noticed that Tallinn is also growing just at smaller speed while Riga keeps decreasing at an even bigger speed than before (quite weird, maybe Latvians can explain why?).
