Tallinn City Government has established a detailed plan for real estate properties at a location where a spa center and hotel is planned, in the Pirita district of the capital.
The properties, at Pirita Road 32, Pirita Road 50, and Maarjamäe Street 11 and their vicinity lie in between Maarjamäe Castle and the Estonian Exhibition and Convention Center, and belong to the private limited company Kantauro, owned by entrepreneur Anatoli Kanajev, who plans to build a hotel and spa.
The detailed plan shows the immovables will be merged into one commercial land plot, and the consolidated plot has been granted the right to build one to three commercial buildings.
"Upon the implementation of the detailed plan, a public urban space will be created for Maarjamäe residences, where there will be buildings with a public function - namely a hotel and a spa," said Andrei Novikov (Center), Deputy Mayor of Tallinn.
Over the years, the residents of the area have opposed the development as, for example, they fear it will lead to the intensification of existing heavy traffic. Based on Novikov's comments, the traffic survey commissioned by the city showed that the predominant traffic load comes from the adjacent Viimsi municipality residents commuting in and out of Tallinn in the morning and evening rush hours, meaning the planned commercial buildings do not have a significant effect on the traffic load.
The building right assigned to the plot formed by the detailed plan allows the construction of three commercial buildings with up to six above-ground and one underground floor. It is planned to build a hotel and a recreation and leisure center for year-round use. in the allotted buildings.
The City Government of Tallinn confirms in a press release that the Maarjamäe cliff and the silhouette of the Old Town will still be guaranteed, in terms of being able to see them following the development. The building areas for the construction of building structures of different heights have been determined in such a way that the part of the building closest to the buildings of Maarjamäe summer manor could be up to two floors, with the aim of ensuring the observability and dominance of the summer manor complex on Pirita Road.
No building area is planned in the protection zone lying on the limestone shore at Maarjamäe, it is reported.
