Construction started of first plot of ‘Golden City’

The construction of the first phase of Vasilievsky Island development in St. Petersburg is started in July 2017, as planned. KCAP+ORANGE, in cooperation with local architects A-Len have designed block 6, consisting of two buildings, based on the winning masterplan scheme for Vasilievsky Island in St. Petersburg, also known as ‘Golden City’.

In late 2015, KCAP and ORANGE Architects won the first prize in the urban and architectural competition for the most western tip of Vasilievsky Island in St. Petersburg. With the urban plan, the 15 ha site is set to become a new part of the city with a diverse mix of urban functions facilitating and interconnecting the surrounding areas. It will become a new face of St. Petersburg as entrance of the city from the water.
