Residential Complex Planned for Beer Factory

Moscow's urban planning and land use commission has decided to build a 150,000-square-meter multi-purpose residential complex on the territory of the Badayevsky brewery, a spokesman for investment group Absolute told Vedomosti. An unidentified official confirmed that use of the central-western Moscow property had been decided.

Plans for the 10 hectare space had earlier included building 480,000 square meters of residential and office real estate, though the idea was scrapped in 2012 due to concerns about the proposal's effect on Moscow's traffic situation and the fact that the area only has one road entrance.

The land commission also recently decided to let Rosneft build a 200,000-square-meter headquarters on 5 hectares of property located partially on the brewery's territory and partially on land belonging to the former Sacco and Vanzetti pencil factory.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
