CK Designworks presents regeneration plans for Minsk Central Business District 


Melbourne international architecture and planning firm CK Designworks has designed a major upgrade to the Central Business District of the city of Minsk in Belarus. When constructed the $US1.2bn project will provide 360,000 sq m of commercial, retail and residential development space in the centre of the country’s capital city of approximately 10 million people.

The new development would include 87,000 sq m of office space in two iconic 50-storey towers with a revolving restaurant on the 45th level. More than 100,000 sq m of retail shopping would extend across a pedestrian bridge linking the commercial and residential sectors. The design also includes a major transport hub linking the existing road network with a subway station.

Janusz Kowal, Director of CK Designworks said: “This is a tremendous opportunity for Belarus. A substantial development like this in their capital city would attract major international investment in the retail, commercial and residential sector. CK Designworks was asked on behalf of a key development company to prepare the designs for the city to totally redevelop two key city sites and it was recently presented to the Federal Government of Belarus and municipal authorities in the city of Minsk.

“There is also a sector within the development area that would preserve the old village lifestyle which remarkably survived the Second World War,” Mr Kowal said. The Minsk development is one of the latest iconic projects designed by the firm with other major projects in UAE, Iran, Azerbaijan, China, and Vietnam as well as a number of significant building projects in Australia.
