Zaryadye Project Moscow Building

This development is located adjacent to the Kremlin and Red Square. Foster + Partners extensive mixed-use urban development in Moscow occupies a pivotal position in relation to Russia’s historical and political past, with the Kremlin and Red Square as its neighbours.

Replacing the Hotel Rossia, the new development will recast this significant site as a vibrant new quarter, with hotels, shops, offices and apartments, and create a backdrop for significant cultural events. The masterplan respects the historical street grid and integrates views across the site to notable buildings, including St Basils Cathedral, the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, Red Square and ten significant historic Zaryadye buildings.

Colonnades mark these principal routes, which converge at a central public square that faces key cultural venues a multi-purpose concert hall, philharmonic concert hall, museum, variety theatre and banqueting hall. Generous spaces for retail, commercial and hotel accommodation adjacent to the plaza will further support its renewed character, creating a scheme that repairs the scars of Hotel Rossia and, like the capital itself, has ambitious prospects.

Zaryadye Park Moscow
Zaryadye is a unique historic district in downtown Moscow, on the bank of Moskva river, adjacent to the UNESCO World Heritage sites at Kremlin and the Red Square. After the demolition of Hotel Russia, the site has remained abandoned for over 6 years.

Vladimir Putin proposes to turn this 130 000 sqm area into a multi-functional public park. This challenging project has the potential to become the most significant public space development in Moscow for the recent decades, likely to set a new benchmark for the quality of public space in Russia.
