The Riga Central Business District of the future lies in the centre of a well-connected web. This site is seated precisely at the crossroads between the historic Old Town and the rapidly evolving Pārdaugava. The former reflects the unbelievably rich history of this Baltic capital. Pārdaugava, on the other hand, is now a vibrant area full of potential, a hub for education, urban-dwelling, commerce, and socialising all in one. This site bears the value of a landmark – here was freedom of speech nurtured via the historic Preses Nams (House of Press) modernist building erected in 1978. This site is also seated at a transit hub as the Vanšu Bridge connects it directly to the city centre whilst its location provides swift passage to the Riga International Airport.

Through the triple glazed windows and the green, floral terraces you will witness the magnificent flow of Daugava. Its neverending current changes by the hour and evolves throughout the distinct Latvian seasons. Daugava river is a national symbol of Latvia. Just as Paris has the Seine, and London has the Thames, Daugava is Riga’s cradle. Since the founding of the city, the river has served as an important trade route and as an industrial engine that made Riga prosperous throughout the centuries. Now a popular sightseeing destination for Latvians and tourists alike, the promenades on its banks are filled with visitors throughout the year. Encompassed by Zunda kanāls, Preses Nama Kvartāls will offer future opportunities for transport, leisure activities and creative solutions for the public space planning.


Moving forward, making progress, and remembering one’s roots and legacy should go hand in hand. Preses Nama Kvartāls will provide numerous opportunities for so many. It will become a place where brilliant business ideas emerge, corporations are established, and people’s dreams are achieved – all in a historically significant location. The original Preses Nams building was built in 1978 and designed by the renowned Latvian modernist architect Jānis Vilciņš. This building was once buzzing with reporters, journalists, and editors as it hosted several publishing offices of newspapers and magazines of those times. Since this was the place where Latvian journalists and editors brought free thought into print during the late 1980s and early 90s, it could be said that the idea of a newly independent Latvia was partly created here. Now, this location will once again be the birthplace for more tremendous ideas for new business opportunities and future growth of Riga.

Knowledge mile

Preses Nama Kvartāls is located within the Knowledge Mile, in the vicinity where the largest universities of Latvia are situated, creating a hub for studies, science and entrepreneurship. 

A future collaborative network for University of Latvia, Riga Technical University, and RISEBA University of Business, Arts and Technology holds more than 40 000 students. The strategic location of the object will allow profound interaction with the already blooming educational facilities in this area. There is a certain ambiance to the Knowledge Mile – that of intellect, fresh and inspiring ideas, and young, open minds ready and well-equipped to conquer the world. Being within the Knowledge Mile is a great advantage of Preses Nama Kvartāls, also making it a frequent port of call for students as interns or new employees.
