    „Rotermann square” is in the active city centre, near two of the city’s largest thoroughfares – Brīvības Street and Čaka Street. It is 15 minutes away by foot from Old Rīga and is located between Tērbatas, Lielgabalu, Artilērijas and Krišjāņa Barona streets.

    The central location makes it easy to get there via public transportation or by bicycle. Tram, trolley bus and bus stops are three minutes away by foot.

    In the past, there were artillery barracks and warehouse barns here. An 1883 map shows that the barracks also had internal parade grounds. Locksmiths used to have their workshops opposite the building lot in Artilērijas Street, which meant that at one time it was known as Locksmith Workshop Street. Cannon repair workshops were located in Lielgabalu (Cannon) Street. The barracks were torn down in 1948, when the military moved elsewhere.

    During the latter half of the 1950s, there were plans to build a cinema and concert hall on the lot, but that did not happen. In 1964, in honour of the centenary of Lenin’s birth, a competition was announced for a design of a new Rīga Sports Palace. The winner was Oļģerts Krauklis, work on the building began in 1969, and it was first opened in 1970. The Rīga Dinamo hockey team began its legendary career there. In 2001, the Sports Palace was privatised, and in 2007, it was torn down.

    Permission received for detailed plans related to land in the territory of the Sports Palace.


    SIA Rotermann Latvia has received permission from the Rīga City Construction Board to draft detailed plans for the territory of the former Rīga Sports Palace at Kr. Barona Street 75. The Rotermann Block is to be developed in accordance with the traditions of Rīga’s historical centre, also improving the environment of Rīga as a modern city.

    The plan is to construct a modern and unique block of flats, offices, and locations for relaxation in a special and publicly available internal courtyard. The project is aimed at becoming an organic part of Rīga’s environment, respecting the fact that it is in the historical city centre. There are two be six buildings with semi-private internal courtyards, thus ensuring architectural compatibility with the surrounding environment. The land is 20,240 m 2 in size, with the planned area of an underground level to cover 20,000 m 2 . Above-ground buildings are to have total floor space of around 70,000 m 2 .

    After consultations with the proponents of the project, the detailed plans will be drawn up by SIA Grupa 93 for the whole territory. There will be six rounds of construction, each on a separate plot of land. The buildings are to be built around the external perimeter of the block.

    “We are sure that the Rotermann Block will supplement the historical centre with a modern environment that will strike a balance between urban and natural life, also ensuring a high level of quality for people’s lives and work,” says SIA Rotermann Latvia board member and project director Kristīne Stabiņa.

    History of the territory

    Historical maps of Rīga show that in 1812, there were artillery barracks and warehouses at the location that is now Kr. Barona Street 75. The land belonged to the city. During the latter half of the 1950s, there were plans to build a cinema there, but that did not happen. In 1964, plans began to build the Sports Palace, and the design was entrusted to Oļģerts Krauklis. The Sports Palace was built in 1969, and the Rīga Dinamo hockey team launched its recognition and fame there. The Sports Palace was privatised in 2001 and torn down in 2007.
