The Moskva River is a unique city vector, along which the majority of the city's sights, recreation areas, administrative and financial district and most attractive parts of the city are located. They all follow a particular chain of locations.Berezhkovskaya Embankment is the missing link in this long chain, a white gap on the city map. The area is a prime site of real estate in the city, with enormous potential – it has every opportunity to become an attractive urban location comprising both residential and civic buildings.The hidden potential of this area is that it is built into an already-existing transport infrastructure, including two kinds of train transport (the rail system and the metro), easy access to the Third Ring Road, and the presence of the River as a way to key into river transport systems.A real advantage of this area is the opportunity to use its landscape potential. The low-level nature of the area's buildings allows us to make a visual trip around the viewpoints – a panorama which includes the Vorobyovy Gory and Lomonosov State University, the Setun River Valley, the Poklonnaya Gora and Victory Park, the Moscow-City international Business Center, the Luzhniki Olimpic Complex, Novodevichi Convent, the Government House of the Russian Federation and the towers of the Moscow Kremlin. Permission to create a planned building with heights up to 70 metres is offering great opportunities to capitilize on the unique position.In accordance with the General Plan For The City of Moscow, this area comes into the category of multi-purpose public zones with a planned building capacity of 1100 thousand square metres.The idea of the project is that the residential and public areas would be encompassed by a park, which would transform the area into a kind of island. A boulevard would run through the centre of the area, providing a central axis. The ground floors of the buildings along the boulevard will have social functions – cafes, shops, and galleries.
