International Financial Center Moscow [RU]

The International Financial Center (IFC) in Moscow is a 460 ha mixed-use development project located in Rublyovo-Arkhangelskoye and includes the construction of offices, housing and hotels, as well as commercial and social infrastructure.

The outstanding feature of KCAP’s proposal is the location of the core of IFC in and around the lake area. It is a stand-alone IFCity which will not only offer a competitive financial business environment but as well living standards comparable to leading cities such as London, New York and Singapore. The core of IFCity, nicknamed ‘The Financial Kremlin’, presents itself as a powerful urban ensemble along the landscape of Moskva River. The core will be surrounded by a landscape park. Within the landscape park, the wider areas of IFC around the core will mature into a mosaic of quarters. Each with its own character, with lively public spaces and buildings with a mix of uses.
