Since the early 1990ties all this district stood with more then 10 unfinished buildings. Since last year the construction has restarted and this is how it looks now.

Still under construction

@ch1le
Don`t think so ... there are no plans of reconstructint the existing comies atleast in the surrounding districts (or I haven`t heard of them) ... only to finish the unfinished ones

@zippo21
Not anly 10 years ago ... but the last 10 years

It's good that they are finished/renovated but they could have used some better colors for some of buildings. The best choice ofcourse would have been to demolish these unfinished commies and build something new.

These unfinished commies were used by the mountain climbers and army units for close combat CQB and fighting in the build-up areas FIBUA.

Commies - there are too many of them to renovate and finish. It`s just Mission:Impossible.

Most of Riga population live in such a commieblocks. So to demolish them is an impissible task. Renovating? Yes. But there's another question - money.

Lol, try as one might, a commieblock is a commieblock!

Yet I'm glad to see this change ... these certainly look much more pleasant than an endless sea of grey concrete. :)

Thanks, Hybrid! :eek:kay:
