Merks starts construction of “Merks Duntes Zīles” and apartment reservation

The construction company Merks has started work on the new residential project Merks Duntes Zīles in Riga, Pededzes iela 3, along with apartment reservation. Two buildings are envisaged within the framework of the project, a four-storey and a five-storey, with a total of 84 apartments. The buildings are expected to be completed by May 2022.

Merks Duntes Zīles will be located in one of the least built-up neighbourhoods of Riga, near Skanste, which is a popular place for families and young professionals. There are many historic oaks in the project area, which will be preserved and supplemented by new trees to make the location greener and friendlier. The project’s energy-efficient buildings will have 2 to 4-room apartments with a total area of 40 – 95 m2. Apartment prices are expected to be 71 000 – 183 000 EUR.

“This is our second residential project for young families. Taking into account market trends, we are continuing to develop compact apartments with convenient layouts at an affordable price, emphasising two and three-room apartments,” says Mikus Freimanis, Head of Real Estate Development. “The well-being of the residents of our homes is important to us, so the apartments in both buildings will have high ceilings, a specially designed lounge with billiards tables and several outdoor picnic tables, at the foot of the historic oaks.”

Within the framework of the Merks Duntes Zīles project, special consideration has been given to the residents of the buildings. In the basements, there will be comfortable private storerooms, a trolley room, as well as a 42 m2 lounge for residents or parking spaces for purchase, depending on the residential building selected. Both buildings will have an elevator that connects to the basement. All apartments will have balconies or loggias with space for plant boxes, while 2.75m-high ceilings will create a feeling of spaciousness and cosiness. The project will also have access to outdoor parking spaces, which residents will be able to purchase for their own needs. The fenced project area will create a private and safe atmosphere for residents and will also include two children’s playgrounds, a recreational picnic area and several bicycle parking stations. For additional security, a video surveillance system is planned.

The project is close to well-developed infrastructure: public transportation, kindergartens, schools, medical institutions, office buildings, sports facilities and shopping centres. The excellent location of Merks Duntes Zīles by Duntes iela will ensure its residents convenient transport to other parts of Riga, as well as to nearby Mežaparks and Vecāķi Beach.

The construction company Merks is the developer, builder and guarantor of this project, taking full responsibility for the work performed and the quality of the materials used.
