The Pillar Development, SIA share capital increase is aimed at paying for the construction works already done in the multifunctional culture centre “Hanzas perons” that is a former Riga’s cargo railway station at the New Hanza territory, as well as to complete the principal construction works under the reconstruction of this historically important building. The New Hanza Centre, SIA share capital increase is also related to the construction works at New Hanza – building the block of office premises: the started works need to be paid for and the piling has to be completed.

The said construction works are important to prevent long-term losses regarding these unfinished objects.
