SBA tower is not U/C it's on hold
Also I'm expecting to see something taller U/C than this bunch of various 12-16 floorers. Anyway this shows that RE market in Vilnius remains very active with lotsa new constructions ongoing and even more planned

It's even quite hard to count them all. I think there are also some high-rises U/C about which we don't know yet. Three "commieblock" 12 floorers:


Akropolis office building 16 floors (on hold - maybe it will not have 16 floors because of opposition by city architects). Anyway there should be more than 20 high-rises U/C in Vilnius today.

This is a graph showing number of new apartments built in Baltic capital cities, this might explain why there are so many new "commieblocks" in Vilnius. One of the problems is that there are not many landplots prepared for construction (documentation, various plans etc.) so some companies just built tall buildings. And that's a good thing because I wouldn't like to see many new 3-4 storey "commieblocks" widespread all around the city

Yeah, I thought it is, but the things are moving

The fact is that 2 years ago there were 4 high-rises projects with 2 built, few months back there were already 12, now it became something bigger + few projects are waiting. Nice to see we're getting taller

Also there are some signs of Vyrokas residential to be made higher (see the Vilnius projects thread last posts)

@Mantaz: If you didn't count those three 12 floorers then even without that 16 floorer and sba tower it's still ~20 U/C.

Commieblock, commieblocks.......
C'mon, all new residential towers can't be glassy, it would be way too expensive. So they have to use concrete...
Or maybe I just don't like the word commieblock.

In examble, this one looks very nice IMO http://img.************/zirm.jpg

Don't you think that it depends from the population too.
Im very annoyed about this graph. There should be something like:
apartment per person.

Sorry to repeat once more - Riga has loads of reconstruction in historical residential houses on-going. There is much more to reconstruct as in Tallinn or Vilnius. New construction in Riga is not the main item yet... but it is becoming.
- - -
We have only 9 buildings with 12 floors or more u/c
But there are 22 approved and 21 proposed highrises according to my data. Among them - 20 buildings with 20 floors and more. I am sure that in short time this list will increase.

yes, and riga has better clouds...

no we all know that Riga is the sleeping(but awakening) giant of baltic capitals... and it will overtake us soon...but dunno, the quantaty isnt that important imo, but where they situate, what they look like so on...if they are all scattered, like in Moscow it doesnt give effect.

I'm not very sure is there is "much more" to reconstruct in Riga than in Vilnius (not sure about Tallinn because there are not really many old buildings outside the old town). Vilnius was really lagging with reconstruction of old buildings what is a shame (not only the ones in the old town but in entire "New Town" disctrict where are quite many late 19th - early 20th century buildings, I'd say about 70% of them still are in bad shape and were not repaired for decades, if ever were. This is the case even in the most central parts of the town). While in Riga reconstructions were ongoing on a high pace for years and most of buildings were repaired.
