The outgoing year 2021 has shown that the combination of flexibility in finding solutions, the efficiency of implementation, and a conscious social focus(the basis of the strategy of the Kievskaya Ploshchad group of companies), allows us to gain a steady pace of development. Moreover, it allows us to successfully implement the most modern trends in the commercial real estate market in Russia, and use unique innovative technologies. Throughout the year, the Kievskaya Ploschad group of companies and its facilities have invariably received recognition from both the expert community and the Moscow citizens.

Furthermore, the number of employees increased by 1 thousand and is more than 27 thousand people.

Development of objects

One of the key aspects of the work of the Kievskaya Ploshchad group of companies has been the development of existing concepts and projects. This approach has become not only successful but also formed a significant trend in the industry. An example of such a project(which has reached the level of an ecosystem approach) is the new Depo, the implementation of which was announced in November 2021. The gastro-quarter Depo Tri Vokzala will be located not far from Komsomolskaya Square, in the buildings of the former 2nd trolleybus park on Novoryazanskaya Street, built at the beginning of the 20th century. This is a large-scale project of redevelopment and adaptation of historical architecture to modern use. As in the Depo Lesnaya, the ensemble of buildings of the trolleybus park is an object of cultural heritage. Therefore, Kievskaya Ploschad, using its unique experience, will return it to its historical appearance.

The project will create more than 2,000 jobs: more than 1.8 hectares of urban area out of 2.8 hectares of the total project area are to be landscaped at the Depo Tri vokzala. The key element of the future space will traditionally be a food mall with an area of more than 8 thousand square meters. m. But the main feature of the Depo Tri Vokzala is an ecosystem approach, a unique concept of extended multifunctionality, which allows to harmoniously combine the popular format of a gastronomic project with an extremely popular format of a business cluster.

The infrastructure of the new Depo will allow young entrepreneurs and investors interested in financing food tech startups to get to know each other. Moreover, it will allow like-minded people to gather in one place, discuss opportunities for cooperation and implement projects.

The business cluster in Depo Tri Vokzala will be supplemented by office space and retail outlets, as well as cinema parking, services, and other progressive development and innovative solutions that meet today's world’s challenges.

The concept of the Food City agricultural cluster has also been developed. For this, the Leviy bereg market in Khimki near Moscow and the Four Seasons food complex in Domodedovo were modernized. Food City Khimki and Food City Domodedovo directly connect fresh food suppliers with buyers and also ensure food security in the Moscow region. Ahead is expanding into 24 regions of Russia at once.

The Food City Domodedovo complex has also become the first regional platform where a unique digital platform(using an electronic exchange) will be implemented, to which both Russian and foreign suppliers, buyers, and service operators will be able to directly connect.

The Food City wholesale and retail grocery center continued to develop joint projects with Sberbank. At the end of 2020, food delivery from the largest agricultural cluster in Europe became available through the Sbermarket service, and in 2021, the Foodsberry digital marketplace for delicious and healthy food was opened.

The key distinctive feature of the Foodsberry marketplace is the exclusion of the long-term storage warehouses from the production chain of orders. Orders are collected directly from fresh Food City deliveries and delivered directly to customers in temperature-controlled and environmentally-friendly packages. Thanks to long-term partnerships with suppliers and manufacturers, the marketplace has attractive prices for products of the highest quality.
