One more office building here

Few days ago I saw that the construction fence was built right in the city center here. This time its seems that finally will be reconstructed so called "Pramprojektas" building (or former Institute of the industrial construction design). This reconstruction wasn't unexpected (as early as two years ago the building was bought by one of the biggest real estate developers in the country and they were very open that they want to rceonstruct this building).
The problem with this building is that it is one of the best buildings of that period not only in Kaunas and Lithuania but in the wider region as well (built in 1963-1966, designed in 1961, arch. Algimantas Sprindys and Vladas Stauskas):
