The Tallinn city government intends to endorse the detailed plan for Linnahall shortly and is still planning to complete the renovation of the now disused entertainment and sports arena situated not far from Tallinn's passenger port by 2018, informs LETA/BNS.

"We set out with the Linnahall detailed plan some time ago and it's been an awful lot of work. All the authorities have their wishes and questions, which is making the process difficult," Tallinn Vice Mayor Arvo Sarapuu said at a conference of the Estonian Association of Hotels and Restaurants on Thursday. 


"Before we put things before the public we wish to agree about the bigger things – to how big an extent and what we will renovate and what will become of the surroundings of the city government," he said, referring to the new complex of the city government to be built in the same area.


"It is our clear wish to renovate the Linnahall by 2018. It's a big project and the city government intends to follow through with it," the vice mayor said.  


Originally made up of an amphitheater shape entertainment arena and a separately lying ice arena, Linnahall was completed in time for the 1980 Moscow Olympics the sailing events of which were held in Tallinn.


Mayor Edgar Savisaar has previously said that reconstruction of Linnahall will cost an estimated 65 million euros.
