18 April 2011 (09:56)

A member of the Russian Academy of Architecture & Construction Sciences (RAASN), Russia’s deserved architect, and the chief architect of UralNIIProyekt Institute Gennady Belyankin spoke against the construction of the Radisson SAS Hotel at the intersection of Malyshev St and Krasnoarmeyskaya St. in Yekaterinburg at a recent urban development council’s meeting.

The project developer Atomstroycomplex promises to finish the building off by the end of 2013.

Moreover, the director of Demidov Creative Workshop Boris Demidov suggested making the building lower and simpler. The idea of putting up fewer storeys was backed up by the director of Arkhstroyproyekt Sergey Aleynikov and Sverdlovsk Region’s chief architect Anatoly Zakharov.

As a result, a decision was taken to redesign the upper and the stylobata sections of the future hotel, elaborate a number of versions with fewer storeys, and place an order for a transport solutions project for Malyshev St, Mamin-Sibiryak St, and Krasnoarmeyskaya St. that will account for the new transport to be involved around the projected hotel.
