The developer reconstructs 39 outdated cinemas and creates on their basis modern multifunctional leisure centers for the whole family. The renovated buildings will again become the centers of attraction of the districts, as it was in the Soviet era.


The district centers will open in 2019 and 2020 and will combine cultural, shopping and entertainment functions, taking into account the needs of residents of each district. The creators of the project plan to make the roofs of 25 out of 39 of them landscaped summer terraces for sports, family leisure and meetings with family and friends. Sun loungers and umbrellas, tables and chairs, kiosks with drinks and ready-made food, flowerbeds with seasonal flowers and shrubs, and, of course, protective fences and warning signs for the safety of visitors will be installed on the roofs.

Comments Alexey Belyakov, chief architect of ADG group:"The roofs of our district centers will become new urban public spaces, where seasonal exhibitions, fairs, master classes for different age categories will be held. Parks and squares are being actively landscaped in the city, but there are still few exploited roof terraces open for free visits by residents.On our roofs, residents will be able to play sports in the fresh air, meet friends or just enjoy the views of their neighborhood.


Exploited roofs will appear in 25 out of 39 district centers: among them the famous roof of "Homeland" (metro station "Semenovskaya"), which will be carefully restored, and new observation decks as in "Budapest"raquo; (metro «Altufevo») with a view of the Lianozovsky nursery or «Hangar» (metro «Varshavskaya») with a view of the pond and the square on Vishnevsky Square.
