The Bolshevik business center is located on the site of the legendary confectionery factory of the same name, near Belorusskaya metro station. The owners of the project, the company O1 Properties and Tactics Group, bought the factory building in 2012. The project was developed by the London-based architectural firm John McAslan + Partners. The business center is located on six acres and envisages the construction of 80,000 square meters of class A office space.
This year, the first tenants moved into the Bolshevik business center. These were the Russian representative offices of the agencies Leo Burnett, Publicis, Saatchi & Saatchi, Starcom MediaVest, ZenithOptimedia, the VivaKi Media Exchange group and a subsidiary of Re:Sources, which belong to the French advertising and communications holding company Publicis Groupe. They have settled in the historic building of the former candy factory on the first line of the complex.
By the end of 2016, the Bolshevik complex of buildings will be completely transformed into a modern cultural and business center which will house, in addition to the business center, a museum of Russian impressionism, cafes, restaurants and shops.
