It is the intention of the client to invite the winner of the competition to supervise the project during its further development towards realisation.

Deadline for Portfolios: 30 June, 2014

Design Challenge: Design of a masterplan for a mixed use development located on the outer side of the Moscow Ring Road not far from the Headquarters of the Moscow Regional Administration.

The master plan will include offices, retail, a multiplex movie theatre and parking facilities. Moreover, its waterfront can develop into a major place for entertainment and recreation with boulevard, beach, restaurants and cafes. The combination of business, entertainment and the natural qualities of the site make it also attractive for residential developments such as apartments and hotels.

The total net floor area (saleable/lettable space) of the complex is 1.000.000 sqm. As part of the project team real estate consultant Jones Lang LaSalle will give a detailed recommendation concerning the program at a later stage.
