Uku Tint, Development & Construction Director of the Volta Quarter, said that apartments in the Volta Quarter are being bought both as a home and as an investment, with Estonians and other nationalities among the buyers. “Volta is also seen as a good long-term investment by foreigners,” said Tint. “The events in Ukraine have not changed this view. There is also a lot of interest in commercial premises, particularly for accommodation and services, but also for retail and offices. Businesses that don’t yet have a location in the northern part of the city are keen to set up shop here in good time.”
The Volta Residences are the first new buildings in the Volta Quarter and are characterised by their diversity, ranging from apartments with one to four rooms to lofts with mezzanine floors and exclusive penthouses with views of the sea and the Old Town. The two-storey underground car park will provide 230 parking spaces for both cars and motorbikes, freeing up the streets of the quarter from parked cars. The buildings will also have a total of four bicycle storage rooms. A total of 1360 parking spaces will be created in the Volta Quarter.
The architects of the Volta Residences were inspired, among other things, by the legendary Volta waffle maker. The architecture of the new buildings is in keeping with the historic industrial quarter, with the modern minimalist form combined with a timeless brick façade, enhanced by bespoke floor-to-ceiling gridded windows and balconies with decorative borders. The buildings are located in the Volta inner quarter, along the new Uus-Volta and Mootori streets.
