Reconstruction of the long-abandoned Linnahall entertainment arena in Tallinn’s port area is expected to be completed in 2019 at a total cost exceeding 100 million euros.
“During the past six months, we worked toward making sure how to proceed,” said Deputy Mayor Taavi Aas, standing in for the mayor, at a press conference on Tuesday. “I am beginning to hope that the grand house with a grand history will come to life again. We have reached an agreement with the government that we will do it together.”

The four-story building has a total enclosed area of 37,000 square meters.
