In development: ELEMENTAL Skanste office complex, Riga
Elemental Skanste office buildings are characterised by outstanding architecture, modern technical solutions, a first-class indoor climate, the storeys are three metres in height and the raised floors provide flexibility to change the spatial plan and the location of workstations. The highly energy efficient buildings are designed to meet the high level of the international BREEAM high standard of Excellent. Environmentally friendly energy from energy piles is used to partially cover cooling and heating needs.
The two interconnected buildings have 21,000 m² of Class A rental space, a conference centre, co-working area, a 400-space bicycle parking facility with shower and changing rooms, and various catering and service areas. Together with the building, approximately 500 parking spaces will be completed, including 200 spaces in the storeys below the buildings.
The Elemental Skanste development project will rise in the heart of Skanste, Riga’s new business district next to Arēna Rīga and across Luminor Latvian head office. There are two parks located near the new office building: Skanstes Park, and across Skanstes Street there will be one of Riga’s biggest, a new three-hectare public park with several sporting and leisure facilities completed in 2022. The location ensures a direct connection to the city centre and convenient access to various modes of transport. This is the first stage of the Skanste development project, and in the future Kapitel is planning to build three additional office buildings and a multi-storey car park here.
