About the project

RIX Airport City is a new mixed-use development at RIX Riga Airport: the leading aviation hub for the three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. Located just 15 minutes from downtown Riga, Riga Airport is an important growth engine for one of Europe’s most dynamic regions, providing quick connections by air, road, and high-speed rail to all three Baltic capitals.

RIX is currently transforming into an emerging hub of Northern Europe and a next-generation air-rail hub thanks to its strategic location along Rail Baltica, a high-speed link that connects all three Baltic capitals to high-speed rail networks in Finland, Poland, and Germany. When finished in 2028, Rail Baltica will offer comfortable connections from Riga Airport to Tallinn and Vilnius in less than 2 hours. Frequent transfers to Riga central station — a mere 8 minutes away—will transform RIX into an extension of the central business district . The Rail Baltica station will be fully integrated into a new state-of-the-art passenger terminal, which will also be completed in 2028 and will serve up to 12 million passengers annually.

Located on the doorstep of this new air-rail hub, we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform RIX Airport City into the best connected business district in the Baltics. Our mixed-use vision for the 24ha site includes an airport hotel, offices, and retail; along with services for passengers, cargo handlers, and the local community.
