The Riga Port is one of the last remaining dockland areas in Europe to be redeveloped. With effective planning, the relatively late discovery of the potential of this dockland can be turned into a key competitive advantage – an opportunity to avoid the mistakes of predecessors.
With insights from the combined successes and failures of previous developments as a conceptual foundation, the New Riga Port City could become the ultimate case of informed development. The New Riga Port City is in the unique position of being able to plan its own success.
The masterplan will be developed through a two-phase process:
Riga Port City
New Riga development company Ltd
Harbour area next to old city centre
Total site area: Approx. 100 ha; Two main areas: A (40 ha) and B (60 ha); Area A, situated closest to the city centre, will be developed in the coming year; Area B will be developed in the next 3-4 years.
