The contract for the construction of the commercial center, located in the Khimki district of Moscow, an investment project of LLC IKEA MOS (Retail and Property), was signed in August 2003 and included all additional work.

The main part of the building features reinforced concrete columns, a steel roof structure and a façade made of sandwich panel cladding.
