The Riga City Council (RD) intends to exchange multiple properties, including a number of properties owned by the insolvency administrator Marim Sprūd, for the implementation of the Scanstreatment project.
The repayment on Monday, August 20 was supported by the RD City Property Committee. Next week this problem will also be discussed during the regular meeting of the RL.
Four fifths of the real estate on Bukultu street belongs to JSC "Projekts B10", but one fifth belongs to Sprūdas, the chairman of the Oleg Burov commission (GKR) was opened during the meeting.
RD needs 5660 square meters of this land, which will cost a total of € 366,550. This amount was determined by the appraiser of the property. The repurchase of the supposed shares of Springs costs 73,310 euros of this amount.
The information in the land register shows that "Project B10" acquired real estate in 2007. Sprud bought a tenth of the company's ownership in 2012, but in 2013 he bought a tenth. The Sprud for the property has paid a total of around 280 thousand euros.
The shares of Sprud are currently being arrested and can not be sold. The Burov meeting, however, indicated that the supervisory prosecutor could authorize the transaction.
The purchase of all lots needed for a project carried out by the RD costs about 900 thousand euros.
RD plots are necessary, as the cabinet of ministers stipulates that if the RD intends to put the Skanstes development project into operation, all built-up land must be owned by the municipality.
RD Urban Development Department predicts that the first construction activities in the Skanstes revitalization project can start early next year, but end at the end of 2022.
Sprud was allegedly accused of extortion and money laundering. Sprud is accused of squeezing around one million euros into a group and legalizing this amount.
Despite the concerns of RF dissenters about the impact of ABLV Bank's position on the project, the Finance and Administration Committee approved in February its plan to channel € 10 million for the development of Skanstes.
In May, VARAM granted the implementation of the Scanstes District Territory Planning.
The total costs of the first phase of the Scansted Territory Revitalization project amount to € 10 million. This amount comes from the co-financing by the European Regional Development Fund of € 5.1 million and the RD funding of € 4.9 million.
The municipal co-financing of four million euros exceeds the originally planned amount, so the municipality must now look for opportunities to borrow this amount. The project should be completed by 2021.
There are plans to build different streets and sidewalks for the purpose of these funds in the Skanst district, to create a utility system, to dig a canal along the Lapeņu street and the territory of the former farms. to create a park around this canal. The costs also include author supervision, construction supervision and project promotion.
As stated, ABLV Bank shareholders decided at the end of February on the liquidation of a credit institution. The decision was taken after the bank paralyzed the proposal of the Financial Crisis Fund of the United States of America to impose sanctions on ABLV Bank in order to prevent the bank from using US correspondent banking services and thus prevent access to the US financial system. obstruct.
ABLV Bank emphasizes that the goal of self-leveling is to fully comply with all obligations of customers and creditors. The Bank's self-liquidation project was submitted to the Financial and Capital Market Commission on 5 March and the committee continues to review.
The collapse of ABLV Bank means that the construction of the New Hanza district in the Skanstes district will also be stopped, as ABLV Bank, one of the largest investors in this project, is one of the largest investors in the Pillar subsidiary.
ABLV Bank is not the only investor in the Skanst district. More than 10 developers have joined the Skansted Development Agency, whose board chairman Martins Vanags has previously told Delfi that Skanstes' development plans will not stop.
As Vanag emphasized, "New Hanza" is an important Skanst development project, but it covers only 11% of the total area of the neighborhood. & # 39; & # 39; & # 39; & # 39; New Hanza & # 39; & # 39; is an excellent project, it is necessary to overcome the difficulties and find ways to implement this project in a new situation, "Vanag said.
Several real estate experts also believe that New Hanza is likely to be realized. The change of the developer is also not excluded. To date, EUR 245 million has been invested in the development of Skanst.
Also, the municipality SIA Rīgas satiksme is not worried about the future of Skanst, because the Skansted tram company, which has almost 100 million euros, does not intend to stop.
The portal "Delfi" has already reported on the Skanst district development scenario, where by 2024 the number of jobs would increase from 8,000 to 37,000, one of the treasured objects of ABLV was a $ 30 million Contemporary Art Museum, which is now frozen.
