TALLINN | Coastal Area Development Plan | Rannaala arenguplaan

The time has come for me to do this, as projects are picking up pace at the harbourside . This is the Fjordcity or Orestad of Tallinn
The area of it is bloody massive 500 HA, it includes parks, new city, and a nature reserve , and ofcourse harbours .
Current situation overview of the designated "downtown" bit, (pic is a year+ old)


now, the plans... heres the work of Architecture bureau "kosmos" (or Space), they are also doing the UC rotermanni quarter.

The "big picture", overview of the designated dense area:

the northern pier:

a vuew from a cruiseship to the northern pier, yes those are buildings

another overview:

northern pier:


the bit of the development that is near Kadriorg park and the New road Northern Pass. The big structure is the location of our very own Waterfront Opera

some "streetscape" renders:


another overview:

backside view, the blank area in the foreground is another more elaborate plan they did, i will feature it in a second:

another streetscape:


now to the more elaborate plan of the Admiraliteedi Basin quarter:
in their mind it would be a multilevel city, walk on different levels, there would be cafes, markets etc

WTF








All this is by Architecturebureau KOSMOS...
In later posts ill concentrate on what has been done, and what will be done

Interesting. Are the plans from "kosmos" aproved, or is it just one out of more proposals? Do you know anything more about how much of it will be apartments, offices, retail, etc? What's going to be inside those buildings at the northern pier?

actually, seems like Kosmos just did the General plan for the area, individual buildings are for anyones pick.
The area near Linnahall and Northern pier recently got a more elaborate detailplan showing what how much so on...
if you want you can see the detailplan here
according to it the area will have 400 000 sqm of new space. 150 000 Residential space and 250 000 office and business space, that means there will be approx 1500 new apartments in that one area. The northern pier by that plan which is approved and will go like it is) will get a "roof" built overit making the entire thing 2 storeys high, on it, other buildings will be built, and along the whole thing a promenade

IF you did check the plan i gave the link for... the green area designated the pedestrian areas

Some of those houses are a bit.. weird..

But oh my god, will they really destroy all the cranes? One of my worst fears is that all cranes will disappear in Helsinki after Vuosaari harbour is completed, and the same will happen in Tallinn too.. The harbour city/seaside feeling will disappear in both cities, what a shame!

But anyway, Reisisadam needs some development, currently the whole area looks a bit abandonded.

Looks very urban. But the street-level renderings so far are not very easy to understand. This is funny how architects around the world place those cheesy personalities in their renderings Why don't they render street fights, dead cats and communist demonstrations instead - just for a difference???
That's interesting about the Opera. Do you know more exact plans, when it would be built?

Looks really impressive! It will give Oslo Fjordcity and Orestad some serious competition!

Awesome, just awesome. Buildings in northern pier look weird indeed, but they`re actually quite cool and differ from usual modern architecture.

more news on the harbourfront:

The developers of the Admiraliteedi area: see the purple buildings lot:

say they will start construction in the coming year - 2006. About 10 news buildings will be built there. construction will take 3 years. On the first floors of the buildings shall be offices, shops, cafes and onwards from there to the 6th floor (buildings are 6 floor high) apartments. According to the plan next to the admiraliteedibasin will be a 40 meter wide promenade, and through the quarter will go a 24m wide main pedestrian street, which will be awesome, will be lined by cafes, shops, trees. The plan also sees the crossing of the heavily trafficated Ahtri street - by galleries or something, so the new area will be connected with the "old" city centre and Rotermanni quarter. The plan calls for about 600 apartments.

in a related article:
Harbour area will drastically change in the coming years:
Speaks about the new huge building with a hotel, spa and the biggest waterpark in the nordics(?), which should be ready by 2007. Next to it is UC Rotermanni area, where 300 new apartments are UC. A first for downtown would be a 24 meter "street" running through the quarter and which will be covered by a transparent glass roof 16m high.



EXITING times!

"White house"? So, my prediction has been correct, Estonians are planning to take over the world, huh? What's next, Pentagon to Rotermanni?
