Valmieras iela 28



Valmieras street 28 (1903), one of nicest buildings in centre's southern area of Grīziņkalns, has recently became renovated. Developer has named it "Imperial Residence" and are selling flats there with such texts: "the elegant multi-apartment building is located in the center of Riga, it is surrounded by landscaped, green parks, prestigious restaurants and the most exclusive buildings and offices in Riga". Everyone who knows this area laughs out loud. There are nor "prestiogious restaurants" neither "most exclusive buildings and offices", also nearest parks (Grīziņkalna park and Ziedoņdārzs) are more than km away. Actually this is a run-down, neglected area with lots of traffic on this street (I had to wait some 10 minutes to take this shot with only 2 cars). Apart from that, of course, it's great that Riga has got another tied-up historical building.
