Aavo Kokk: we want to renovate Patarei Sea Fortress by 2025

  • 2022-06-09

US Real Estate, the developer of Patarei Sea Fortress, is announcing a construction tender for the building complex, and plans to start renovation works later this year.

“Our team is working hard to ensure that Patarei Sea Fortress is completed earlier than originally planned. We have set the goal of having this unique historical complex and new buildings located at Vesilennuki 2 ready in three years, in the summer of 2025,” said Aavo Kokk, CEO of US Real Estate.

Almost 75 people work daily in preparation for the construction of the complex – architects, interior architects, designers, lighting designers, landscape architects, the client's team, and engineers.

“Together with our construction team, we have started the process of choosing a construction partner, with whom we can successfully finish the preliminary work. Also, our sales and marketing team has prepared the story and concept of the Sea Fortress. We know what environment and added value the Sea Fortress will offer to tenants in 2025, and we are ready to start concluding contracts. It would be a good idea for those who are interested in renting space to contact us early enough”, added Kokk.

Patarei Sea Fortress will become one of the most unique complexes in Estonia, where a stylish 19th century fortress meets modern architecture. A place that connects business and leisure, work and social life. The building will present a unique blend of historic and modern architecture.

The complex has a total of 32,200 m2 of rental space, which will include offices, restaurants, cafes, an event centre, a grocery store, a bakery, a flower shop, a pet store, a brewery, a youth hobby centre, an art gallery, and a museum. On the sea side there will be a 310-metre promenade, where various leisure opportunities and outdoor cafes are planned.

Patarei Sea Fortress is the first Estonian building protected under heritage conservation regulations to apply for the international LEED certificate, which confirms that the design, construction, and maintenance of the building follow the principles of environmental protection and sustainable development.

This summer Patarei Sea Fortress is already open for visitors – its guests can enjoy good tastes in cosy food and drink places of the food street, take part in various events and visit the International Museum for the Victims of Communism.

For the first time, the Lunette yard is also open to the public, and the City Theatre will perform the summer production “Kalaranna 28” there,  https://linnateater.ee/lavastused/suvelavastus/
