Gazprom subsidiaries are to improve the east and west embankments at the Lakhta Center. The project is to be developed in two stages. At the first stage, coastal defense installation is scheduled, and at the second stage, infrastructure will be put in place.
After the embankments development is completed, they will be transferred to the city. The project was agreed upon between the city government and Gazprom, which built the Lakhta Center to house the company’s headquarters as well as public spaces.
According to Alexander Beglov, the new embankments will offer additional recreational space for the residents. The city government approved allocating the site for building the embankments.
