The 62 comfortable apartments (35 to 101 m2) are on offer with high-quality full interior finishing, energy efficiency, an underground car park and storage for your property.
Each apartment is all the more charming because of French balconies, while residents on the sixth floor will enjoy a large roof terrace with a great view of the Riga skyline. A particular advantage for the building is private gardens for people who live on the first floor.
