That building’s income in the first nine months of the year was EUR 1.69 million, or 35% more than in the same period of 2021. The Žygis Business Centre’s income increased 49% over the same one-year period to EUR 0.35 million. The occupancy of both properties at the end of September 2022 was 91%-100%.

“Since the start of the year we’ve advanced significantly with the design of the reconstruction project for the buildings at the intersection of Palangos and Vilniaus Streets. We publicly presented the design for the project at the start of the year. The Vilnius City municipality later approved those proposals and issued the design requirements for renovating the complex. We are currently working with the Viltekta design firm to prepare the technical design for reconstruction of the buildings,” says Vytautas Bakšinskas, the real estate fund manager at INVL Asset Management, which manages INVL Baltic Real Estate.
He says targets have also been met in the development of the property at Vilniaus Street 37. Studies of this distinctive building in the protected Old Town of Vilnius have been completed, details of the site's valuable attributes have been updated, and the preparation of reconstruction and management projects has begun.
“During the studies of the building, valuable wall and ceiling paintings were found, and we started work to preserve those paintings already at the end of the summer. We plan to publicly present the design proposals for reconstruction of the building, which is subject to strict heritage protection requirements, by the end of this year,” Vytautas Bakšinskas notes.
In early July, Dommo Grupa, a subsidiary of INVL Baltic Real Estate which is developing the 58-hectare Dommo Logistics and Industrial Park alongside Riga, sold a 3.4-ha plot of land for EUR 0.4 million. This industrial park in Latvia is attractive for those seeking built-to-suit solutions (where a property developer builds a facility for a client under a long-term lease agreement) and land that already has infrastructure in place and an approved detailed plan for developing commercial real estate projects of various types and sizes.
