The development of the Vidzeme Riga Central Market AS market development concept will cost 35,000 euros, excluding value added tax, is indicated on the website of the Procurement Monitoring Office.
In October, Colliers International Advisor won the announced competition.
The concept should be developed by the company within four months but not before February 28 next year as provided in the contract. Both parties will organize working group meetings at least twice a month.
Colliers International Advisors bought € 2.49 million last year, with a profit of € 1.13 million per year. The real beneficiaries of the company are the chairman of the board, Ēriks Bergmans, Deniss Kairans and Mihails Morozovs, according to information available to Lursoft.
The information available at the Procurement Monitoring Office indicates that Colliers International Advisors analyzed real estate belonging to the University of Latvia in 2015, and in 2012 organized sales of unpaved land from the Property Department of Riga City Council.
In turn, SIA GR Art & Print won the tender for the development of Vidzeme's business plan, concluding an agreement with Riga Central Market worth 15,000 euros.
GR Art & Print, in 2017, makes a total of 1.28 million euros, earning almost 15 thousand euros. The company belongs to Evita Nihnidovič and is dedicated to the printing of publications.
This year, "GR Art & Print" has won several acquisitions, including the printing of catalogs from the Latvian National Museum of Art, printing services from the University of Riga Stradins and the right to deliver the trinkets of the victims to the Service of Emergency Medical Help.
It has been said that the topic of the future of the Vidzeme market has been updated in Riga City Hall this summer. The mayors of the Riga Central Market in May asked to invest a number of properties in the company's share capital but did not accept the RD decision until the Riga Central Market was able to present the idea of developing the Vidzeme market.
Currently the Vidzeme market is managed by a sub-leaseholder of SIA Kaufmann Concepts, which was leased to the territory until December 31, 2019. The "Riga Central Market" plan is to find a long-term tenant who would not be investing in development from the market.
Artis Druvinieks, chairman of the board of the Riga Central Market, said that it is imperative to maintain the market function by creating a place for cinema holidays and other public activities, but the abandoned meat pavilion door should be kept in food stores and cafes.
