About New Hanza

New Hanza is a territory near Central Riga that is about to become the capital city’s new central business district. Convenient traffic, major city landmarks within walking distance and well-developed infrastructure are just a few of the advantages of New Hanza sites.

New Hanza will be an open and dynamic business and residential neighbourhood with the future Latvian Museum of Contemporary Art and the Hanzas Dārzs Park at its heart. The principles of artistic creativity and excellence are interwoven throughout the development of this district, starting from the choice of architects and construction partners through to the requirements for the finest details.

New Hanza Office Buildings

New Hanza is not only a solution to the growing shortage of spacious Class A office premises on Riga’s slow-growing real estate market. The territory could provide 270,000 m2 of commercial premises and 80,000 m2 of residential space, but what makes this project unique is its diversity: apart from offices and apartments, the neighbourhood is going to be rich in quality modern public amenities, making it a place where various streams of creative energy converge and coexist.

At its core, New Hanza is dedicated to enterprise and audacity, manifested through the pursuit of excellence, in the form of the creation of an environment for outstanding success in business, service and culture.

Art and Leisure

Hanzas Perons

Hanzas Perons is a venue for culture — concerts, exhibitions, conferences and festive events. In the New Hanza territory, this is the only evidence of the former Riga Railway Goods Station’s scale and infrastructure. Being an industrial monument, it is reborn into a new qualitative public venue to continue honouring historical heritage in the new age.

The total space of the main hall of this culture and entertainment center amounts to 1,230 m2 that makes it suitable for large-scale events, conferences, concerts or exhibitions. Thoughtful design and modern technologies provide options for transformation of the hall into two or three halls separated by acoustic walls that stop the sound in one hall from disturbing the event in the hall next door. The space of the separated halls (460 m2, 300 m2, and 460 m2) is well-adjustable for various occasions, while the production area with dressing rooms, showers, storage space and kitchen area ensure comfort in servicing any event. The total space of public premises amounts to 2,800 m2, while the ceiling height reaches 9.2 m.

In 2017, the initial phase of the construction of the new territory’s infrastructure was completed. Over EUR 8 million were invested in the construction of streets and modern utilities including water mains, drainage, heating and power systems. The total area of streets and developed land spans 15,400 m2, while the drainage, water mains and power networks extend for a total of 12 km.

The first phase of infrastructure construction included the installation of a high-power hydraulic powered pumping station for gathering and channelling rainwater into the city’s drainage system. The pumping station will ensure that, even after the heaviest downpours of rain, the New Hanza territory will remain clear of large puddles. The most essential part of the rainwater drainage system is the water reservoir, which has a capacity of 5,000 m3 or 5 million litres. This is the first time in Latvia’s history that this kind of project has been implemented.
