04.01.2021

The construction company “Merks” has started the construction and reservation of apartments of a new residential project “Merks Mežpilsēta” at Hipokrāta street 24, Riga. Within the framework of the first project stage, three 5-story buildings with 117 apartments will be built. It is planned to complete the construction of the buildings by the end of 2021.

“Merks Mežpilsēta” will be located in one of the greenest neighbourhoods of Riga – Mežciems, which is a preferred place to live for young families. The land plot is located in a unique place, between Dreiliņupīte stream, which is planned to be cleaned up, and a forest, which is a nice place for walks. In the three energy efficient buildings of this project 2- and 3-room apartments with the living area of 35-70 m2 will be available. The planned price of the apartments – 1750-1950 EUR/m2.

“This residential project will be our first project for young families – it will have compact apartments with well thought-out and comfortable layouts at affordable prices, maintaining the quality of “Merks” real estate projects,” says Mikus Freimanis, Head of Real Estate Development of “Merks”. “We also think about creating a common living environment – there will be a pedestrian bridge over Dreiliņupīte stream, as well as relaxation spots by the stream. The environment will include several children playgrounds for different age groups, gazebos for neighbours for socialization and celebration purposes, as well as landscaping, including fruit trees.”

The owners of the first-floor apartments of “Merks Mežpilsēta” will have private green areas with a view of Dreiliņupīte stream or the forest, while all other apartments will have balconies. There will be common areas for storage of bicycles and prams on the first floors of the buildings and private storages in the basements. Elevators will be available in all three buildings. The project will feature outdoor parking lots, which the residents will be able to buy, as well as public and private electric car charging points. Special attention has also been paid to security – the project area will be fenced and video surveillance will be ensured.
The project is near a well-developed city infrastructure with public transport, kindergartens, schools, medical institutions, sports and shopping centres, which will ensure a comfortable daily life. Biķernieki and Jugla forests are also located nearby, offering various recreational opportunities.

The construction company “Merks” is both the developer and builder of this project, as well as the warranty provider, taking full responsibility for the works performed and the quality of the materials used.
