A park will replace the Judicial Quarter on Petrograd side / ASN-Info
The Judicial Quarter will move from Petrograd side to the Smolnaya Embankment where the Museum of Defence and the Siege of Leningrad was once planned to be built. A park and the Boris Eifman Dance Palace will appear on the site of the former State Institute of Applied Chemistry.
The news received a mixed reception from the experts who were interviewed by the ASN Info portal. Many disliked the fact that the authorities are once again changing horses in midstream.
Maya Petrova, Head of the Real Estate & Construction Practice at Borenius Russia, shared her views with the portal’s editorial office concerning the need to create a judicial quarter in St Petersburg.
