For us Petrovskaya Embankment is not just an area that needs to be developed. From a city-planning point of view, this is perhaps the most significant territory for today. With the concept of development and then with the design decisions that will be implemented on this territory, I would like to look not ten, or even twenty, but fifty or more years into the future. For people to say decades later that we were not mistaken.
