The Riga City central part’s model is intended to be used in the activities of the Riga City Council City Development Department, when planning the city’s development and evaluating the construction projects submitted by developers, as well as this it will promote society involvement in forming the general spatial vision of the city.
The model is created in such a way, as to provide an opportunity of viewing the Riga City territory and also its further development by placing new objects there, as well as to secure the visually spatial depiction of the city environment for its presentation needs.
The Riga City central part’s model has been made at the order of the City Development Department. The city model in the scale of 1:1000 was made by SIA O.R. Points, and LVL 69,492 have been spent for its implementation.
