CONSTRUCTION in project
Vladivostok, like many other port cities of Russia, in fact, doesn’t have a sea front. The coastline of the “Golden Horn” basis occupied mainly with port facilities intended to serve the cargo fleet and tankers, as well as bases and berths of the Navy and Russian Border Services. The situation in the new realities is the main obstacle to the development of the city as a major commercial and tourist center of the Pacific Basin.
At the same time, the coastline between Nizhneportovaya street and the train tracks is an ideal place for the continuation of the existing landscaped waterfront, that can be further developed for attracting residents and passengers of ocean liners.
Currently, the city has taken some measures to facilitate the access of residents, using the suburban trains, to the platforms. First of all it is the pavilion box office located on the viaduct, with an access from the main square and the pedestrian promenade along the railway paths. To a certain extent, these solutions help commuters avoid using the over-congested Aleutian street. But these decisions also contain a potential for the organization of pedestrian traffic on the newly developed area for high quality arrangement of public space and formation of the sea front of the city.
The architects were set a clear task: it was necessary to use the area of the four business center floors to maximum effectiveness and organize workplaces for the greatest number of employees of the law firm.
Moving into the newly built BREEAM certified modern business center of A Class "Arcus III” has been considered not only as a technical consolidation of two Moscow offices, but also as an opportunity for qualitative improvement of workspaces
