@Zinedine - I can't say how high will be the spire of Panorama Plaza but it sure should be higher than Hansabanka.
http://www.panoramaplaza.lv/webcam1.htm
You can see that the spire is quite serious - some 3 - 5 floors high.

@LV_Elf - yes, they asked to remove the top floor, just as you say.

What? As if without one floor it would be so different! Ridiculous!

No, it looks much better one level down. The tower looks overwhelming when it as tall as in the rendering. I absolutley agree with the City that the proposed building on the site of the destroyed pre-WWII, should dominate the intersection, just as it was before the war.

To my mind this Brīvības and Miera streets corner building looks too much 80s - in bad meaning! But, as always, there is a good thing about this project! At last Riga city council is starting to do something in this after-war scared place!

There is another place witch is in really in bad situation and this time this is in very heart of Riga - I think all Riga citizens know this bad example of "how to rule the city"! Marijas and Elizabetes streets corner! I guess for almost 15 years this building is like in these pictures! Very very beautiful building but such a shame for Riga! As i know, there is a unsolved property right problems with some owner witch live in Australia! Few years ago i heard that this building will be expropriated! Anybody knows this story and what is going there right now???

Nothing going on There have been tested several ways to solve it - but private property here is a holy cow - if owners ensure that building does not create danger, it can stand forever. He can get comparatively small fines for bad looks of building, but again - if he doesn't pay, court case costs a lot more than these fines and there are many chances that City will not win because... private property is a holy cow.

Legislation should be changed IMHO. But it is not a simple thing to do because at the same time we should support private owners of such buildings.

This situation is similar to one that frustrated Philadelphians some years ago, when real estate speculator, the late Samuel Rapparport, sat on some significant Center City properties and let them go to pot. The city was generally powerless, it seems, to do anything, except impose fines. Only after he passed away, did his estate have to deal with the situation at hand, and things begin to move. One of his beleagured buildings now stands freshly rehabbed, the Victory Building on the corner of Chestnut and 10th Streets. I wish Riga the best!

Yes, there is such a thing as demolition by neglect.

And I, too, do wish Riga the best!

Balasta dambis 11 got initial support but they have to revise some things in their project:

Just reporting to those who missed it out. Despite fierce opposition to develop Riga Airport to become a major airport in Eastern Europe the carrier Concors opened a 10 million euro repair hanger at Riga Airport. It will be able to repair up to 60 Boeing-737 and A-320 airplanes and more than 100 airplanes of the average size.

Quality Nami is long-known project to me, they are fighting with local people some 3 years already. Locals are against construction around the small pond in Kengarags and they have some truth - this place really is pleasant now. Quality Nami propose to develop very interesting building with unusual views to inner yard which would be pond instead.

That project with two highrises is unknown to me. I believe - this is one of tender proposals, where this project won:

Paldies for the info. It seems those houses would be built directly on the bus stop.

Many elegant midsize projects appearing lately. This certainly is one of them - apartment complex in Jaunciems (far north-east of Riga City behind Lake Kisezers). Architect - "Silis, Zabers & Klava":
