The building, which houses offices and a data processing center, aims to complete the building curtain of a block situated at the intersection of three urban axes.

The design solution of the business center in St. Petersburg has been developed for quite a large site which doesn’t have any essential changes of the area topography. It is supposed to build a separate three-storied building in the form of a simple, uniform volume with a monolithic framework.
