Riga Flatiron

900 Pixel Beta Version

Today I will continue my search for Flatiron-Buildings and Flatiron-Like-Building.
This building 21 Elizabetes Iela, Riga, Latvia may not be the real prototype of a flatiron building, but is has certain values so we can at least speak of a flatiron-like-building.
And besides it is a very elegant building. If you can see at the picture and read in the info below this building was renovated at the moment I took the picture.

Residential complex "Elizabetes Park House" is located in the quiet city centre, in what is called the Embassy District, at the intersection of Elizabetes and Strelnieku. The building was built in 1910. The renovation took place from 2010 till January 2013. Investors have spent €11 million to purchase the building and to reconstruct it.
Nearby there are Albert street where one can find Art Nouveau buildings constructed by famous Eisenstein, and the Kronvalds park with the channel and pedestrian bridges. In this area there are many fine restaurants and cafes. In twenty minutes of walking through the park one can get to the Latvian National Opera and the Old Town.
There are 18 luxury apartments in Elizabetes Park House. The ground floor provides space for offices. Charity fund , branch of the bank, jewelry shop and currency exchange rent it, so residents won't suffer from noise.
Most of the apartments have been sold during the reconstruction phase. But now two -, three- and six-room apartments are still available. For example, two-bedroom apartment of 146 sq.m goes for €1,025,000.
