The Park City masterplans provides a strategy for the development of an important waterfront site located on the edge of the historic centre of Moscow. The project supports a mix of uses including office, residential, cultural, leisure and retail on a 15 hectare site.
The development is organized along two axes. One takes the form of an urban boulevard that runs parallel to Kutuzovsky Prospect. It is lined by residential perimeter blocks and terminates in the west with a public square framed by office towers. The second axis, at a diagonal to the first, takes its orientation from the existing 19th century red brick brewery buildings, which will be renovated and used for retail and public functions. This axis connects the development to the Moskva River, where it culminates in a dramatic viewing point hovering over the water.
Along the river, a series of towers developed by a number of different architects, step up in height to the Hotel Ukraine, one of the famed “seven sisters” of the city built in the Stalin era that are now landmarks on the city skyline.
