A conversion project has been planned for implementation in the very heart of Kaunas City, in the old town of Kaunas, next to the Kaunas Tower. Upon its completion, the territory of the former Lituanica shoe factory will be converted into a modern complex of active leisure, retail, offices, and residential blocks.
. The detailed plan of the development of the territory between the Petro Vileišio Bridge and the streets of Jonavos, Šauklių and Šv. Gertrūdos was drawn up on the basis of the summarised results of the "Lithuanica Kaunas 09" international creative workshops organised in 2009, which was approved on 21 September 2016. The total area is approximately 11 ha. The approval of the detailed plan took nearly seven years.
The next stage of the territory’s development is the preparation of project proposals.
