The Vilnius multipurpose complex project in Šeškinė (Lithuania) is entering a new stage with the construction permit issued on May 23rd for the National Stadium and the sports museum that will sit there.

‘VILNIUS’ stated that the construction work of the stadium – together with the entire multipurpose complex – is scheduled for completion in 2025. The project is carried out by the concessionaire UAB ‘Vilniaus muthifunkis kompleksas’.

Stated Šarūnas Stepukonis, Head of UAB ‘Vilniaus muthifunkis kompleksas’, “The above development will pave the path for a multifunctional complex to come up in Vilnius in the near future. The construction of the National Stadium will begin next month.”

‘VILNIUS’ further stated that the National Stadium will have three above-ground floors and facilities in the basement. The basement of the building will house a sports museum, players’ rooms and a media area. On the first floor will sit the regular and VIP spectator areas and a commercial area where various eateries will tickle fans’ taste buds. Another VIP area will sit on the second floor of the building and the auxiliary and administrative rooms will be lodged on the third floor. The total area of the stadium is 15.9 thousand square meters.

A park will skirt the National Stadium and it is being planned to plant new larch trees, pines, maples, oaks, lindens, apple trees, lilacs, and various shrubs and ornamental plants in the park, which will not only freshen the environment but will also provide a healthy ambience to the community on which the stadium will sit. The trees will also help in keeping the surrounding areas cool. The park will be built at a price of more than 2 million euros. Measures will also be initiated to reduce noise pollution.

The above project will be implemented in phases. The construction of the stadium along with the sports museum will take considerable time so would be taken up in the first phase. Later, at the end of this year, the construction work of the cultural center, the athletic facilities, the sports center, and the kindergarten will begin.

The multifunctional complex in Šeškinė will span over more than 228,000 square meters of area.
