After successfully solving disputes on the architectural value of a former road police building in Giraitës street, the building and its assigned site of 2.2 ha will be turned into an office complex. The building was acquired in 2015 by Lidl Lietuva.
Procedures had stopped due to disagreements over the architectural value of the former police building – whether it should be treated as a heritage site and protected accordingly. Disagreement among the Department of Cultural Heritage, Vilnius City Municipality and Lidl Lietuva was resolved and a settlement agreement was signed. All the parties agreed that the building does not require a cultural heritage protection regime, so that it can be demolished and an office complex built in its place. The complex will be based on a project prepared by one of the successful bidders of the architectural contest.
Sorainen represented Lidl Lietuva in negotiation with Vilnius City Municipality, the Architects Association of Lithuania and The Department of Cultural Heritage as well as in signing the settlement agreement. The Sorainen team was led by partner Aušra Mudėnaitė and senior associate Simonas Skukauskas.
