Pillar – the Developer of New Hanza

New Hanza project is managed by a full cycle development group of companies known as Pillar. The group founded in 2008 currently includes real estate development, management and maintenance companies employing more than 60 high class professionals. With such range of companies in hand, Pillar can successfully manage and execute all the stages of New Hanza project from start to finish, from planning, design, construction, supervision through to sale, leasing and maintenance.

The unity, functionality and elegance of the designs at New Hanza are the vision of Pillar Architekten, an architecture firm founded in 2014. Construction work is being organised and managed by Pillar Contractor, the general contractor responsible for supervision, management and quality control of the construction process. And finally, long-term comfort and amenities in New Hanza neighbourhood will be ensured by Pillar RE Services, a utility company established in 2013.

In developing New Hanza, one of the largest real estate projects in Latvia, Pillar also cooperates with over 650 contractors. The investments into New Hanza have already hit a line of EUR 60 million.

In its operation, Pillar has always had two pillars to back on: its understanding of what is important to the client and its ability to find the right solutions at all times.
