Rūpniecības iela 21 - Viesturdārza mājas

Viesturdārza mājas is housing project located to the north of Riga centre. From many aspects, it is a nice place to live - beautiful park next by, close to centre. But there is a big con too - the proximity of Riga industrial port which sometimes tend to pollute air with coal dust or some other nasty things. I don't know whether inhabitants of these houses feels these "effects" of port.

See this place in Riga map.

  1. It is very difficult to find all the good along, there is something that is not good.


  2. There is a great failure about those houses and it's the access road. The only one goes through park Viesturdārzs. It's in the second picture where a two people are walking. It's really annoying to walk there or feed the ducks while at least every couple of minutes you have to let go an approaching car. There is no seperate pavement for walkers left.

  3. I used to live in this area about 20 years ago. There is one building in Petersalas street, which port built for workers, so my grandfather got an appartment there. I remember a strange smell in the park, but I guess it was from "Hanzas maiznica", smell of yeast.

  4. I got a feeling I had already seen these buildings somewhere, then it ringed to me there's an almost identical development in Tallinn that was built back in 2002. Apparently Merko (Merks) was the developer of both of these projects and they seem to have made only some slight changes to the buildings that were erected in Riga.
    Here's a link to some pictures, in case you're interested:
