The peace is reigning here, the birds are singing, and the wind whispers to the leaves of the century-old oaks. Putnu Street is one of those little streets in Ziepniekkalns, hidden from the hustle of main nearby roads and crowded residential areas. This quiet corner next to Bieķengrāvis canal used to be an outskirt of Riga in the days of old, with a few small manors and the cows grazing on the meadows. Such street names as Mālu (Clay), Kāļu (Turnip) or Kartupeļu (Potato) bear the evidence of the rural living. Although the Putnu Street is located only 10 minutes away from the city center by car, it still bears a peaceful ambience of a suburb.
The new project is developed by SIA NCC Housing and will be located in Ziepniekkalns, at 31 Putnu St. (near the Road Traffic Safety Directorate). Here it is planned to construct a six-storey building with 60 two- and three-room apartments and surface parking at 31 Putnu Street. Each apartment will have a spacious balcony and an individual storage room in the basement. There will also be a place for a spacious courtyard and playgrounds near the house. A short walk – and you will enjoy the sceneries typical of the countryside. Another couple of minutes – and you reach Riga Plaza shopping center or Iki supermarket on Mūkusalas Street. The construction of the house is planned to be finished by the end of 2015.
