The first phase of this development, commissioned by 0.1 Properties and the Tactics Group, will deliver 50,000sqm of office space by September 2013.
Aidan Potter, Project Director, comments: “This unique piece of Moscow’s heritage is the setting for one of our most ambitious adaptive reuse projects. The Bolshevik Candy factory is an architectural and social landmark in Moscow and its return into active use is part of the city’s revaluation of its remarkable cultural heritage.”
