In the summer of 2023 construction of a three part building with 114 apartments and seven commercial premises will be completed on the corner of Lastekodu and Odra streets, giving an entirely new look to this location that boasts a fascinating history. Did you know that a narrow-gauge railroad once ran along Odra street and a marketplace occupied the place of today’s bus station?
The Odra development in a logistically excellent location consists in three building parts – the building parts at Lastekodu 31/1 and Odra 6 have up to six above-ground floors, while the building in the courtyard at Lastekodu 31/2 stands up to five stories high. Relief concrete parts in a variety of color shades and burnt brick tiles provide the buildings with a dignified exterior look, while glass surfaces and decorative metal profiles add an industrial feel. Our material and color choices are guided by the district’s milieu and color solutions so as to ensure harmony with the surroundings.
As characteristic to the City Center, the building parts at Lastekodu 31/1 and Odra 6 have commercial premises on the street level perfect for small offices or cozy cafes. The first floor’s courtyard-facing part and the higher floors house premium-quality one to five room apartments among which investors, people seeking a smaller city apartment, and larger families that value the advantages and conveniences of city center living all will find an abode ideal for them. The Odra development’s yard area is but a green oasis in the midst of fast-paced hustle and bustle of the city. The secure landscaped courtyard has a playground and recreational areas with special solutions providing excellent opportunities to relax in the fresh air and chat with the neighbors.
It is exceedingly important for us to make sure that residents in apartments created by Merko experience sincere joy from their home and feel truly at home there.
To ensure best quality and comfort, we manage all the stages of an apartment development: planning, design, construction, sales, and warranty service. As a result of our long-standing, deliberate, and caring work we hold the title of Estonia’s most prestigious real estate developer for a number of years in a row (Emor 2019, 2020).
The Odra development’s architect is Martin Aunin who also created for Merko the architectural solution for the building at Tartu mnt 52. The apartments’ interior finishing packages were born in cooperation with Kersti Pilar.
