„In June, we won an auction organised by Turto bankas, where we acquired a small but important garage (Vilniaus str. 37) for the development of the site for the original auction price. At the end of the first half of the year, a deal was concluded for the acquisition of the Pramogų Bankas building, and with the successful completion of the transaction, we are now starting to implement our long-term plans for the redevelopment of the site and the increase in its value,“ says Mr. Bakšinskas.
