Holy cow! Alot going on in Riga! Is the demand that high!?
Ever heard of high profits going hand in hand with high risk? Riga is one of those places:) Right now no one really knows what will happen to the economy next.

The housing mortgage market in Riga seems to have steadied itself, while there are still absolutely huge shortages of decent office space, warehouses, stores and industrial park facilities.

You also have to realize that Riga is waaaaay behind Western European cities in terms of quality and area of housing per inhabitant. The private business both in terms of revenues and number of enterprises is only trying to reach the Western levels. Business facilities have long way to go as well.

So, all in all, you shouldn't compare developments in Eastern Europe to over-saturated, stable and mature markets in the West. It's the whole different ballpark in EE.

im sad that a large portion of those projects are pretty much commieblocks which add nothing to the city. Only a notch in the old highrise count, but nothing else.

but on the flipside.
Andrejsala, Zvirgzdusala and Kliversala are awesome!

You are just jealous because:eek:hno: :

What about Gaismas Pils, Da Vinci, Z-Towers, Rietumu Banka (class A offices), Hanner, Zakusala? They've got nothing common with commies!!! The only architecture that has a distant resemblance with commie type buildings IMO are Metropolia, Astra Lux and Ezerparks:) :) :)

But this is sad reality (07.06.2007):

Looks like dead zone...:(

It is better this way than quickly built low quality cracking crap floating down the Daugava river after first sring high waters. They can not afford to have a publicity and technical failure because of the technologies integrated in this building; it is supposed to be "one of" in the world and the only in Europe.
