Real estate developer promising to preserve historic Kalasadam fishing port in Estonia

BC, Tallinn, 22.05.2020.Print version
Listed Estonian realtor Pro Kapital Grupp, which is developing the Kalarand area in North Tallinn, said that the fear of the Kalasadam fishing port becoming a pond is unfounded and the port will be preserved, the daily Postimees writes, cites LETA/BNS.

"The basin of the fishing port is separated from the sea by a temporary dam, which made it possible to lower the water level and thus carry out construction and renovation works in the port basin more efficiently. The temporary dam will be completely removed after the work is completed. The entry channel will not become narrower. The previous partially collapsed quay was not in line. Thus, the entry channel will not become narrower and the width of the entry channel has not prevented the use of the port in the past," representatives of the company said.

"It is a bit surprising that locals are now worried about the port being preserved. During the detailed plan procedure, the main opposition was to the planning of the port and, as we recall, the port was taken out of the detailed plan of Kalarand. Pro Kapital affirms that our goal is to tidy up the area and not eliminate the port," they added.

Tallinn Deputy Mayor Andrei Novikov said that the city is certainly interested in the preservation of the port, and also during the planning process the aim was to create a seafront promenade and tidy up the port basin. Novikov said he believes that the hub to be created there will allow to enjoy the sea promenade from Noblessner in North Tallinn to the Russalka monument in Kadriorg.
