Russian rail start-up

Construction has started at the new Moscow rail terminal in St Petersburg, which will serve the proposed high speed rail link between the two Russian cities. The terminal is part of a multi-million dollar commercial centre including office buildings, international hotel, apartments, shopping arcade, and multilevel basement parking. Preservation of the existing Moscow railway station, built around 1850, together with adjoining buildings has been an influential factor in the design of the scheme, which is set for completion by 2001. The professional team comprises architects HOK International, structural engineer Scott Wilson, mechanical and electrical engineer Lehr Associates and engineer Gibb.
