Approved the results of tender for the first group of highrises in Lucavsala. It will consist of four midrise buildings - two will be 17 floors high and two - 14 floors. The higher ones - 62,4 m and the lower ones - 51,6 meters high. Architect - Finnish CEJ


Highest buildings in Zakusala are designed up to 131,5 meters, 36 floors. Just enough to beat Z-towers :P

What's up with the supporting pillars of the leftmost building? Is the whole 14 floor structure going to be carried on those thin columns?

@nomels - this is not the land plot in question. The big fuss is about the major part of Lucavsala, but central part silently is "taken" by "Merks" some years ago and is developing irrespective of the other part.
@raz - the building is kept by a central core, which is hidden from that view.

"Hyatt" today has confirmed that they have signed agreement with "Tango projekts" about 5stars hotel in their new quartal. Every day am passing by the construction site - it's large and impressive.

Public hearings about this apartment house in Anninmuizas boulevard on-going now.

In last autumn this project was well started rising above - now it should have reached full height. M. Kempes 4 - some 12 or more floors high apartment building with quite interesting designe IMHO. This place is close to Mezaparks.

Close next to this building there is project of 24 and 16 floor apartment buildings with interesting design - in early approval stage.




- - -
Hotel Maritim has changed the design of their 18-floor addition - the new one looks better, altough it is nothing special. If all goes well, they might start soon.

Hm. There are many things happening in Riga lately - but nobody reports it here

Sorry - imageshack does not work for me - thus no pictures.
- - -
Riga Technical University has decided to stay and develop in Kipsala. They own their land plot in Kipsala already with a bunch of delapidated Soviet time buildings - it will be renovated and intensified. Currently University is scattered around Riga City.

In this year will be started elaboration of unified architectonic plan for the University. Calculated investment - 295 mio EUR. As the land plot is pretty small, University has got 16 000 students and this part of Kipsala is destined for highrises... I smell new university highrises coming up in future.
- - -
3 26-floor affoce and apartment buildings in Plavnieki today didn't get full approval - they have to elaborate on kindergardens a bit more.
- - -
"Panorama Plaza" costs have increased to 150 mio EUR now.
- - -
Started public hearings about the development of Andrejsala, first stage (49 ha, apartments for 65 000 people, working places for 80 000). Two options proposed, both with highrises. One envisages buildings up to 120 m high along Eksporta Street, another option - separate highrises in middle of Andrejsala. Project to be realised during next 10 - 15 years. There are two more stages afterwars - total project area is 123 ha.
- - -
There will be extended tramline to Rumbula in coming 5 years time. THis will be needed in order to cover the needs of the new Rumbula district.
- - -
Two tower type apartment buildings in Anninmuizas boulevard will be 28 floors and 96 m high. Tomorrow these will go through Construction Board.
- - -
Three glassy 18-floor office highrises at Southern Bridge were reviewed at City Architect's office this week.
- - -
Eight unusual 12-floor office and apartment buildings got full approval for Skanstes Street area today. Time to build them now
- - -
Interesting 10-floor apartment and office building proposed for Ostas prospekts - "other side" of Mezaparks. It's height - 44,5 meters.
- - -
Announced international architecture tender for building next to Central Railway station, where until recent time was "Latvijas pasts" - Latvian mail office. They moved to airport area recently.
- - -
Proposed enormous musical/light fountain for Daugava in front of Kipsala highrise district. City garden and park agency is assessing the costs of it.
- - -
Local company "Plus punkts" has started construction of 100 mio EUR worth office and storage capacity complex in Airport City (outside Riga). It will include also 16 floor high office building - but that one will come a bit later.
- - -
"Hanner" has started pile driving for three 16-floor apartment-office buildings in Ropazu street. In few month time will start construction works.

OK, now come pictures.

First picture shows Kipsala with planned, buil;t and existing highrises. Red lines show the Technical University area - as you see there is not too much place for 16 000 people. That's why it seems logical that there will be highrises.


Three 26-floor office and apartment buildings which were not approved today yet because of unsolved kindergarden problem.


Andrejsala project - there is planned row of up to 120 m high buildings


Group of 5 12-floor buildings which got final, full approval today. I hope that they will start soon


Pile driving for three of these buildings has started in these days:
