Romanov Dvor is a premium business quarter located in the very heart of Moscow, 500 metres from the Kremlin, address: 4 Romanov Alley, bldg. 2. It is listed, according to Forbes, as one of the most expensive pieces of commercial property in the Russian capital. It is not your usual business centre, but an entire commercial quarter built by RD Group as per the design of Popov and Architects, one of the pioneers in renovation work in the historic centre of Moscow. The quarter has been in development since 1996 in the area between the streets Vozdvizhenka, Bolshaya Nikitskaya, and Mokhovaya, and Romanov Alley.
The whole complex of buildings of the Romanov Dvor business quarter blends seamlessly into the surrounding architecture of Old Moscow. The period facades of the buildings skirting the quarter have been maintained, whilst the contemporary second building, and the audacious aspect of the third phase, are tucked away neatly behind the original edifices.
In addition to the elite office space, there are cafes and restaurants here: Correa’s, Paul, and Dolmama. Also business-class apartments, the World Class fitness centre, the Romanov Cinema, banking facilities, flowers by Florist Gump, and the dry-cleaners Bianca. One of the quarter’s assets is the pedestrianized street of eateries and landscaped inner courtyard, open to all. This makes Romanov Dvor an attraction not only for businesspeople, but also city residents and tourists.
With most business centres, the end of the working day means an end to activity: but not at Romanov Dvor. This development is not only a place of business but also a comfortable public space which draws active, progressive, thoughtful people, a place where they can feel a connection to the city, its history and culture. During the warm season, the inner courtyard plays host to a constant round of photo-exhibitions, masterclasses, and talks.
The business complex was constructed in compliance with cutting-edge technical and engineering specifications, and international environmental standards. In 2013, Romanov Dvor was the first project in Russia to receive certification under the updated BREEAM In-Use International standard, which confirms its meeting global standards for Class A+ office premises in terms of environmental sustainability.
Romanov Dvor counts among its tenants some of the foremost international companies: global leaders in consultancy, banking, and financial and legal services such as Credit Suisse, White & Case, Bloomberg, Boeing, Bank of Tokyo, Squire Patton Boggs and many others.
Of further benefit is the complex’s access to transport links. In close proximity are the metro stations Biblioteka imeni Lenina, Borovitskaya, and Arbatskaya. Distances to the airports: Domodedovo – 40 km, Sheremetyevo – 30 km, Vnukovo – 30 km. The complex contains a two-storey underground carpark capable of accommodating 250 vehicles.
