New life for neglected peninsula

ESTONIA: Scandium Kinnisvara and Everaus Kinnisvara have acquired a unique peninsula in Haapsalu on the left bank of Suur-Viik. They plan a development centred on luxurious seaside villa apartments, a marina, restaurants and a spa hotel.

“The peninsula by Suur-Viik is a unique place in Estonia where a total of 20 low-rise apartment buildings can be built, with virtually all windows offering enchanting sea views,” says Maido Lüiste, CEO of Scandium Kinnisvara. “Due to the elongated shape of the peninsula and the established detailed plan, the houses will be located only 30m [98ft] from the sea, which means that the views will be exceptional both to the sea and to the nearby islands and peninsulas.”
At the beginning of the last century, a popular port was located at the top of the peninsula and several heads of state and important visitors landed there. The existing deep water will enable developers to rebuild a marina in the second stage of the development for locals and visitors. A swimming area, café and personal boat bridges for apartment owners are also planned.
Everaus Kinnisvara CEO, Janar Muttik, comments: “The Haapsalu project is truly large-scale in terms of the whole of Estonia. We want to reopen the area, which has been forgotten for decades, to the people of the city, so that it becomes a diverse urban space with a place for homes, summer resorts and many recreational opportunities – from health sports to sea sports and authentic food culture.”
In order to protect the buildings from possible floods, the ground will be raised, a move that will further enhance the views.
