Topping out ceremony at Merks Magnolijas – the latest project by Merks

On 4 November, the construction company Merks celebrated the topping out ceremony at the Merks Magnolijas residential project to honour the commencement of the final phase of construction. This is Merks’ first residential project in Pārdaugava and its first stage will consist of two 3-storey buildings with 96 apartments in total. The project is scheduled to be commissioned in summer of 2023.

“Today we are holding the topping out ceremony to celebrate the point at which the building has taken its general shape and it is now time to transition to the next phase of the construction cycle – the finishing works. This project, and its location in particular, is a hidden gem of Pārdaugava that is not yet widely known to the public, but holds a great future potential. I would like to thank the project architects, building supervisors and the entire Merks team for their immense efforts to ensure that the construction progresses according to the plan and schedule in these challenging conditions,” says Andris Bišmeistars, Member of the Board and Construction Director of SIA Merks.   

Keraterm construction blocks made of burnt natural clay and manufactured in Latvia have been used in the construction. Keraterm blocks are good at retaining heat, resistant to moisture absorption and loads and are a natural, breathing and durable material. Looking forward, these qualities will help the future residents of Merks Magnolijas save on energy and everyday living costs.

“Merks Magnolijas marks the start of development of a new residential housing project in Pārdaugava. From the outset, this location has been special and offering a sensation of cosiness, helped by the green neighbourhood of Skrīnes Street and the calm residential area. I would like to sincerely thank the entire team that helps to bring this project to life and see you in the summer – at the project launch celebrations!” says Mikus Freimanis, Member of the Board of SIA Merks Mājas.

As reported earlier, reacting to the buyers’ preferences and needs, the construction company Merks has expanded its residential portfolio on the left bank of Daugava, in the picturesque Šampēteris neighbourhood. Currently it is possible to preorder apartments in the first building of phase one of the project where a total of 48 apartments ranging from two to four rooms will be available. Prices start from 114 000 euros.

Merks Magnolijas apartments will be available with high-quality full interior decoration. To provide a feeling of spaciousness, each apartment has a 2.90 metre-high ceiling as well as a balcony or even a private terrace up to 11.8 square metres in size. The buildings will feature shared pram storage rooms on the first floor. For convenience and safety of the residents, the premises will be equipped with controlled access and video surveillance. As for leisure, while children play at the modern playground, their parents will be able to enjoy a waterside recreation zone. The project will offer the option to purchase outdoor parking spaces.
