The project of new apartments “Skanstes PARKS” has been completed


Having built 130 new apartments in three houses, the construction company Merks has completed its work on the Skanstes PARKS residential project. The territory has a well-equipped public park with an area of ​​21 000 m2, playgrounds and an underground parking. The total area of ​​the buildings is over 12 600 m2 and it is occupied by 2-5-room apartments.

The project was launched in 2015 and started with the construction of a house at Grostonas 12, followed by houses at Dikmanu 4 and Vesetas 15, after the completion of which the general construction of the Skanstes PARKS project finished in September.

The chairman of the Board of Merks Ltd Oskars Ozolins says: “The centres of European cities are often built as not only a place for tourists and office workers, but also as a convenient place for the true owners of the city – its residents. The demand for modern housing close to the city centre is proven by the fact that all apartments in our previous projects, Skanstes Virsotnes and Skanstes Mājas, have been sold, and Skanstes Parks has sold and reserved more than half of the apartments. In the future, Merks plans to develop and implement new housing projects close to the city centre, making the area attractive for living.”

Skanstes PARKS is a part of Riga’s new development, which continues the building of the Skanste district as a modern centre. The opportunities of purchasing a new apartment close to the city centre are still limited in Riga; therefore, one of the aims of the Skanste district development is the creation of a new modern housing, in the vicinity of which there is all important infrastructure – schools, kindergartens, sports centre, medical facilities and public transport.
