Construction of a multi-purpose complex belonging to Russian oil giant Gazprom in Belarus is suspended, a Deputy Chairman at the Committee for Construction and Investments of the Minsk City Executive Board, Nikolay Butrim, told RIA Novosti news agency on Tuesday.
“At present the construction is freezed,” he told the news agency. At the same time, Nikolay Butrim didn’t clarified the reason for the suspension. “Ask Gazprom about that,” added the official.
According to the plan, a multi-purpose complex located near the National Library in Minsk, the capital city of Belarus, was scheduled to open in 2018. Preliminary cost of the project was estimated at $500 million.
The facility was designed to unite nine buildings of different height, with a 36-storey glass tower located in the center of this architectural composition. It was supposed that Gazprom Group’s companies would be headquartered there.
