“LNK Industries” JSC begins reconstruction of historical building on Alberta Street

In the quiet centre of Riga, on Alberta Street, which is considered the jewel in the crown of Art Nouveau buildings in Riga, “LNK Industries” JSC begins reconstruction and restoration of residential building on 5 Alberta Street. It is planned to put the building in commission in December 2016. Total reconstruction costs will amount in EUR 4.120.00 (excluding VAT). The project is ordered and financed by the Embassy of Russian Federation in Latvia.

House on 5 Alberta Street rises 22,8 m in height and has 6 floors with total area of 2932 m2. General construction and finishing works in volume of 3719 m3 will be carried out during the reconstruction. This includes restoration of building’s facade and interior, as well as construction of internal and external utility networks. After the reconstruction, one wing of the residential building will host 30 luxurious 50 to 90 m2 apartments, while the other one will host 2 studio type apartments.

During the reconstruction, the building will be connected to municipal utilities. Reconstructed building will have 3 new elevators, one of which will be placed separately in the inner yard to preserve the historical planning of the main facade, but 2 others – in side bulks. Historical planning of the house will also be preserved; consequently, the entrance to the apartments will be located in the main stairwell.

 “We are glad that stone tenement house that was constructed in 1900 and until now has been in dreadful technical condition, for a long time giving the shivers to Riga’s citizens and guests, will revive again. Before beginning the reconstruction, we examined all possible technical engineering solutions in detail, so that in the process of reconstruction historical value of the building intertwined with innovative solutions of 21st century”, emphasizes Member of the Board of “LNK Industries” JSC Evgeny Lotsov.
