Šnipiškės urban study

The Šnipiškės district is changing rapidly. New apartment blocks and offices are being built, old neigh­bour­hoods, streets and public spaces are being renovated.

How to maintain the unique character of the district, create a balance between the city and nature, and ensure the principles of sustainable devel­opment in the face of such intensive devel­opment? To answer these questions, we made a detailed analysis of the Šnipiškės area and proposed an urban devel­opment strategy for this district.

For the analysis of Šnipiškės, we developed a method­ology to assess the quality of the envir­onment in all Šnipiškės neigh­bour­hoods. We also compared each point in the district with its 500-metre surroundings, based on obser­va­tions, calcu­la­tions and open data. Our analysis encom­passed ten themes – mobility, access­ib­ility, liveliness, identity, and others. Based on the findings, we identified the weaknesses of Šnipiškės and prepared an urban strategy and an action plan on what should be strengthened, changed and improved by 2035.
