Currently on-going public hearings about the development of new highrise quartal in Daugavpils City. This quartal is located between Sporta, Cietoksna, Kandavas Streets, close to center.
This quartal will include several 17-20 floors high apartments buildings and office buildings, underground car parking, reconstruction of streets. High attention is paid to architectonic skyline from riverside.
Developer - local "Marta Plus".
It seems, this is not the only highrise proposal for Daugavpils, some weeks earlier "Ditton" announced that they are going to build hihgrises in the city.
Announcement about the public hearings:

Why not? They can afford it architectonically - although the city has numerous historical buildings it hasn't real historical centre. Area around hotel "Latgola" - most central place in the city - has a mix of architecture from different times. Thus they can try to make modern, dynamic centre nearby instead.
I suppose that Daugavpils has quite good perspectives in future.

Some pictures of the city (not mine):




A bit more than hundred of Art Nouveau buildings are in Daugavpils:

Hotel "Latgola"

A lot of new architecture has been built recently:


Ice hockey hall

University of Baltic Russians - new part

Churches

One smaller square in Centrum. I have noticed that they care a lot about their greenery:

Project "SKYLINE" will start in this year, will have two highrises, each 25 floors high
Developer of this highrise project - "Ditton nams" - have announced that this project will be started in this year, completed in 2007. Height of buildings has been increased - both would be 25 floors high. Each building will have 15 000 m2 area. 7-floor office building nearby will be 7 500 m2 large. There will be underground parking. Costs of this project - some 15 mio EUR. This project will form the entrance from Riga side into centre of Daugavpils.
