Riga masterplan unveiled

Fletcher Priest Architects has released the first glimpses of its masterplan for Latvian capital Riga.

The plans cover a 46ha area on the left bank of the Daugava River, adjacent to the city’s World Heritage Site centre. They will considerably expand the city centre with a network of new public streets and squares, council headquarters housing 2,300 staff, and a new railway station.

The London-based practice was asked to lead the team reshaping the mixed-use site at the beginning of last year. Arup, Davis Langdon and Ernst and Young are also working on the project, which will lay foundations for further expansion across a 206ha area.
