On the Orlinoe Gnezdo hill, STG-Vostok builders are completing the construction of the cast-in-situ frame of the Cultural and Educational Complex. Its readiness has reached 89%. The area of the complex is almost 70 thousand square meters.

“The facility is growing by the minute. Only for a month the future theater has grown by another 10 meters. Over the summer we built six floors. Now the reinforced concrete frame is being built at a height of 33 meters from the ground level," - says Evgeny Koshelev, General Director of STG-Vostok.

According to Evgeny Koshelev, the heart of the Mariinsky Theater branch will be an auditorium for 1,300 seats. At present, the site is being prepared for the construction of a steel frame for the auditorium. The parterre has already been built and the construction of the second tier of the auditorium has begun.

The branch of the Mariinsky Theatre will be the highest and largest section of the multifunctional center. The area of the theater will exceed 45 thousand square meters.
