Construction underway on the next stage of apartment buildings in Lahekalda

The construction of the Lahekalda residential quarter located on the limestone shore of Maarjamäe in Tallinn is moving forward at pace. Next, two apartment buildings with a total of 108 apartments will be completed as part of the fifth stage of the development.

The apartments in the 8-storey energy class A buildings at Paekalda 19 and 21 will range from 36 to 125 square metres in size.

“Lahekalda quarter is already home to nearly 350 families. More than half of the homes in the recently completed apartment buildings at Paekalda 23/1 and 23/2 have been purchased. Even in today’s market situation, we will continue with the next stage of construction activities as planned in order to ensure the comprehensive development of the quarter and offer people a better living environment,” commented Jaan Mäe, head of real estate development at Merko Ehitus Eesti.

The architectural solution for the apartment buildings at Paekalda 19 and 21 was developed by PLUSS Architects. Merko will incorporate green recreation areas for adults and children around the buildings and install solar panels on the roofs of both buildings.

The first eight buildings of the Lahekalda quarter containing more than 380 apartments are ready. The previous apartment buildings with 98 apartments at Paekalda 23/1 and Paekalda 23/2 were completed at the end of 2022; currently, more than half of the apartments have been sold and the remainder are ready for new homeowners to move in.

Lahekalda quarter is located in Tallinn on the beautiful Maarjamäe limestone cliff, at the boarder of the Pirita and Lasnamäe districts. The development project comprises approximately twenty-five new residential buildings with more than one thousand apartments, which will be built in the next ten years. The courtyards of the buildings contain green recreational areas and playgrounds; in addition, buildings with commercial and service functions to support a comprehensive living environment are also planned for the quarter. The close proximity of the Pirita health trails and sea promenade also add value to the rapidly developing neighbourhood.
