The leading western architectural companies take part in project realisation (Irish Murrayolaoire Architects and IMB ASYMETRIA Architects from Poland) and the building companies (the general contractor - the Polish firm BUDIMEX).

The rent price will depend on many factors: From that how much the tenant large, known and a leah is it the strategic partner, from the area and a site in a complex, from an imprisonment term of the lease contract and set of other factors.

“ Europe - the Center “
the Victory Area
Company Gamma Development engaged in realisation of investment projects in sphere of commercial real estate and entering into holding Gamma Management Group, starts building opposite to a film concert hall “ Russia “ new object - a multipurpose complex “ Europe - the Center “. The basic idea of this project is subordinated to formation of new modern city space for dialogue. As speak in Gamma Development, thus eshaetsja a problem of comfortable association of interests kaliningradtsev and the future city visitors. “ Europe-centre “ becomes the central public quarter where it is possible both to work, and to have a rest, and to shop.
complex parametres correspond to the European standards: From hostel of world famous French network Accor to an accomplishment of surrounding territory, including reconstruction of city square at a monument “ Mother - Russia “.
Over the complex project the international command of architects and designers (kaliningradtsy Oleg Kopylov, Sergey Gulevsky, Alexey Arhipenko and Tatyana Koblova, Ed Jenkins from Dallas, as Tony Brown from London, Marek Archishevski from Warsaw) worked.

The complex centre becomes main atrium with the panoramic lift and a new city fountain. In a complex the big underground parking place is provided. The general contractor chooses the Turkish company “ KONTEK “. The total amount of investments will make an order of 70 million dollars.
a film concert hall “ Russia “
the Victory Area
One more large-scale project in city centre - film concert hall reconstruction “ Russia “. It will be at all reconstruction, and building of a new modern building with a huge cinema hall on 2000 places, hostel, numerous cafes and shops, the three-storied underground parking which possibilities will allow to unload seriously city centre from cars.
- in a word, a multipurpose complex, - Arthur Cherkassky, the general director of the company " speaks; the Baltic whale “ which rents today “ Russia “. - The matter is that now actually on a cinema money to earn hard - it is unprofitable. And we are urged to develop a corresponding infrastructure. So, the object is necessary for developing - that the building corresponded to the European level.
the project prepared by known British firm Chapman Taylor together with architect Vasily Britanom, it is live reminds samples of modern West European and American architecture: in a design it is supposed to use actively glass and easy designs, and in height the building will reach almost 70 metres. By the way, altitude new “ Russia “ has called ambiguous reaction from the public - a pier, it is impossible to destroy historically developed low building of the centre of Kaliningrad. However, according to Britana, no destruction will occur.
- the matter is that the city centre should have the high-rise dominant, - the architect believes. Is a sign element which works both from streets Chernyakhovsk and Garage, and from Leninsky prospect and Mira prospectus and reflects architecture of city centre. The project is made very competently from the point of view of space planning.
while it is difficult to name realisation terms, cost of the project and potential investors who will want to put up money in building of the second Kaliningrad skyscraper (the first as all know, House of Councils). As Arthur Cherkassky, " speaks; kind “ on building governor George Boos should give. The matter is that now at “ the Baltic whale “ uneasy there are relations with agency on property of the regional government which while opposes to a pulling down of an existing building “ Russia “.
- It is necessary to spend additional coordination, - admits Cherkassk. Is a building and morally, and it is structurally obsolete. As present “ Russia “ - absolutely standard project of a cinema what it is a lot of on the country. On the other hand, after reconstruction the area will receive absolutely new modern object in the property. All it is strange, considering that the offer on the concept of building of the central part of a city has arrived from us in 2002.
now anyway the project will be necessary for finishing according to the designed complex “ Europe - the centre “ which will erect in the neighbourhood.
