The United States embassy in Estonia, now ensconced behind car barriers on the closed street of Kentmanni in central Tallinn, has been for years considering relocating to another part of the city. According to a local daily, a plan has been developed for a possible move to a location on the outskirts of Kadriorg Park.

However, in an assessment of the American plan by park officials, according to Eesti Päevaleht, a street would be built through the nature preserve to a planned building on Valge street, with a back road to Oru street, which has a potential of damaging the limestone escarpment (klint) on the northern side of the park.

The assessment also suggested that the water system of the park would be affected in the area of the Japanese garden, and the water feed to the ponds would decrease because of the plan.

The press representative for the US embassy, Evelin Kokkota, said they are far from making the final decision.
“We continue work with the local authorities in order to assure that the solution that would be implemented would be in accordance to all regulations,” she said.

The US has maintained continuous official diplomatic relations with Estonia since 1922. The US legation was first placed in their current chancery building during the first period of independence, from 1930-1940.

After Estonia regained its independence in 1991, the US Mission to Estonia resumed operations on Kentmanni street on February 6, 1992. The street was closed to vehicle traffic following the terrorist attacks in the US in 2001.
