Vibrant quarter: when wholesale and residential go together
METRO Russia has operated a successful wholesale store in Komendantsky Prospekt in St Petersburg since 2003. The site is located along the district’s central avenue, near many of the city’s attractions as well as a variety of public transport options. The area has undergone a metamorphosis in recent years. Formerly industrial in character, it has become an attractive neighbourhood featuring modern residential quarters, shopping malls and social infrastructure.
METRO PROPERTIES identified the potential of the location early on. As the site is adjacent to high-density residential areas and close to public transport lines, METRO PROPERTIES initiated a partial redevelopment of unused parking space.
