The Riga Port City project concept will set the stage for several scenarios of development, and demonstrates the maximum development opportunities of this Riga center area.
Riga Port City's total area of development is 470 000 square meters, including residential, commercial and leisure projects, parks and playgrounds, public parking and quality urban public space.
The concept will consider the country’s economic growth forecasts, Riga’s development opportunities and trends. Investment environment, real estate market, infrastructure and transportation issues are being thoroughly analyzed, as well as foreign experience in the development of former port areas. Attention is dedicated to the assessment of air quality, noise level and wind effect.
The 4,5 km waterfront in Riga Port City will be public, including direct water access, promenades along the riverside. One of the main aims of the project is the improvement of mobility solutions for pedestrians and cyclists.
Creation of public landscape will encourage greenery already at the initial stage of development. Temporary parks and public space projects are being considered.
