A tower that is part of the former paper mill at Fahle Park on Tartu Road in Tallinn will be redeveloped as a viewing tower in the coming years.
The area, close to Tallinn's bus station, is being developed by Fausto Capital and the building is almost 100 years old.
The boiler house with its chimney is one of the most interesting monuments left over from the former paper mill and will become the symbolic centre of the district as well as a tourist attraction, the developers said in a statement.
"Inside the chimney, the design envisages the construction of a spiral staircase and a glass elevator, which will bring the visitor right to the top platform providing stunning city views. The top of the chimney features a terrace covered with a glass dome. The chimney is connected to the former boiler house whose core will be formed by covered city street several storeys high as well as architecturally distinctive office and commercial spaces," said Einar Niin, the sales manager of Fahle Park.
Fausto Capital plans to start renovating the house and chimney at the beginning of 2022.
