MLA+ wins design competition Lermontovsky shopping mall and transport hub in Moscow

The winning proposal of MLA+ consists of a 47.000m2 shopping centre with an underground transport hub connecting two subway stations, a train station and a bus terminal. It is located in the southeast part of Moscow. The new Kosino metro station is still under construction and located directly underneath the site.

The MLA+ design concept revolves around the idea of providing clear visual connections and access ways across the building, so both commuters and local residents feel visible.

The program incorporates not only typical transit shopping program, but also offers social experiences suitable for the whole family like a children’s play areas, fitness centre, cinema, roof restaurant, bar areas and an open-air leisure area with a seasonal activity program including sports and culture.

In the near future, the detailed design of the transport hub and its construction will begin.
