New dwellings built around lake to south-east of neighbourhood
“Zolitūde is a neighbourhood located on the city’s western edge consisting mostly of prefabricated Soviet-built apartments; built in the early 1980s. The population is mostly Russian-speaking. The proximity to the international airport, the seaside resorts of Jurmala, and the new architecture have made it attractive for young families. Most residents commute to the central business district by the electric railway; with two stations in the area” [editted quote] [location].
