METROPOLIS [MOSCOW, RUSSIA] PROMINENTLY LOCATED ON A MAJOR HIGHWAY ENCIRCLING MOSCOW, METROPOLIS REPRESENTS A NEW GENERATION OF COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT FOR A BURGEONING REGION OF THE CITY. The goal for the 315,000-SM retail and office development was twofold: introduce a modern mixed-use environment that supports aroundthe-clock activity while creating a sophisticated space that integrates into the local setting. Inspired by the energy of city centers, the design of Metropolis mimics an open-air street scene. Retail corridors that resemble shopping boulevards utilise colours, patterns and finishes that transform individual storefronts into dynamic and alluring facades. A grand plaza and garden serve as a junction between the retail component and three office buildings. With close proximity to a metro station, bus interchange and a future light rail stop, Metropolis becomes a celebrated extension of downtown Moscow.
