5. Development of an old wooden house residential district: Supilinn in central Tartu

Abstract [en]

Supilinn is a declined wooden house residential district in central Tartu, where no renovation has occurred for decades, and many inhabitants lack water, sewage, flush toilets and hot water. Supilinn exemplifies many similar districts in the Baltic states, with considerable cultural values and a wide gap between actual and potential land values. The new master plan attempts to improve the economic performance of Supilinn and to foster gentrification, by increasing the population by one third in a decade, improving services, replacing currently rundown buildings, building new streets and expanding the use of the riverside area, without losing the very particular milieau.
