Kuntsevo Plaza

Situated within central Moscow, Russia, the new live-work-play Kuntsevo Plaza delivers a modern community gathering destination rooted in art, nature, and urban connectivity. Providing a new stage for dynamic public activity and distinct commercial offerings, the pedestrian-oriented center will establish a vibrant leisure, shopping, business, and residential complex reconnecting the urban fabric of the historic Kuntsevo district, while creating a new landmark for the city. The project’s key urban design principles establish vital connections to the surroundings, including to the nearby transit line with a grand public plaza at the front entry closest to the metro, and multiple entryways and accessibility from the various streets, taking advantage of the site’s unique topography and grade change. 

Consisting of over 200,000 square meters of GFA, including 70,000 square meters of spectacular light-filled retail and entertainment spaces, and three contemporary Class-A office buildings with rooftop park terraces, the new complex delivers an integrated mixed-use destination in Moscow that will attract regional visitors and serve as a catalyst for future sustainable development.

The project’s design enhances its potential to become a continuously active public realm. Through its synergistic combination of retail, entertainment, dining, cultural uses, state-of-the-art office and modern residential, within a single, world-class facility, all designed at an experientially articulated pedestrian scale, Kuntsevo Plaza enhances its respected, historic city, breathing new life into Moscow.
