The former industrial zone will turn into a multifunctional area with a residential quarter River Park, three business centers, hotels, mixed-use complex with retail and entertainment options, garages, a fire station and a chapel at the river spit. The project is based on idea of creating a maritime atmosphere. Thus, there will appear a sailing school, a yacht club, a playground and even a beach with fishing bridges. The developer also plans to hold landscape works, in particular, to plant tree species that grew up in the capital 50-60 years ago and forgotten presently, and to organize public spaces at the territory.
