This residential compound was built on the territory of the former tobaccoo processing plant and is the premium class housing.

The second object are “Viktoria” and “New Center” residential compounds are also located in the center of Perm. Its building contractor is a local Komstrim company. The thirs micro-district was called “Griboyedov”, which investor was PIK company.

At all three sites the building contractor's representatives told about the applied materials and technologies of the German producer.
