You mean that Zakusala or Kipsala or Rumbula are bad quality projects? I haven't seen similar large scale + quality projects elsewhere in Baltics. May be smaller Kvartalas or Tallinn port quartal projects can match them but those are of different league

Sorry, by huge megaproject i mean the kind like Solaris, Panorama plaza. But again the real value of Riga lays in the centre area, and all those new wonderful individual projects being built there.
As for megaproject well, we have Ülemiste city www.ulemistecity.ee plan: (http://www.ulemistecity.ee/pictures/toostus-plaan.pdf)

Certainly I was speaking basically about apartment blocks.

Hi,

I just checked the website of the Acoustic Concert Hall @ www.koncertzale.lv to find out it is under construction and will be reopened in February. Here I am posting few images of the surrounding area of the concert hall taken from the video presentation.

The gray-blue coloured buildings are ones that are proposed, built or under construction. Some of them are recognizable but some of them are not. I am just wondering what are those buddings there? I can recognise "Hansa Banka", "Symbiotic tower", "Preses Nams", "Manutent" at Balasta dambis 11 and "Da Vinci", though I couldn't find "Z-Towers"

Some Riga news media is reporting on:

- "Vertikālā pasaule" has come up with a proposal to the owners of "Preses Nams" building (AS "Ventspils nafta") to buy it for 60 mil EUR. That would be incorporable in "Z-towers" (investment130mil EUR) infrastructure.


- The representatives of ĞManutent Latviağ (the owner of the land plot in Riga at Balasta dambis 11) in the interview told that the construction on 96m high rise will start at the end of 2007 or beginning of 2008. Estimated construction costs - 40mil EUR.


- The concept of the 8 storey building on Miera 1 (picture below) was approved by Riga city council. Though they gonna need to look on increasing the size of projected parking space (there are 36 parking lots proposed now)

Unusual design for the residential project In Jurmala is being developed. There is going to be a glass wall and on the indoor surface 365 different pictures will be projected - every day a different one.

Thanks, @nomels! I don't have time anymore to "work" here

Maritum hotel is 17 or 18 floors high, it has got full approval. Can't say I love it - city asked them to redesign it several times, it got slight improvements but still looks like a hectic aggregation of boxes.


While the final outcome of design tender for Lucavsala - "Talie skati" - is just great IMHO. Authors - "Arhitektonika". They also got the necessary permits, hope - they will start soon.

Hanzas 14 will be some 16 - 18 floors high and together with another 16-floorer will form a kind of midrise "gates" when entering Skanstes Street area - here the other project:
