Kievskaya Ploshchad builds the Schelkovskiy transport interchange hub with the first roof-top bus station in Russia

29 October 2020

Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin and Moscow Region Governor Andrey Vorobyov have opened the Schelkovskiy transport interchange hub, built by the Kievskaya Ploshchad Group of Companies in the style of the world's best modern transport hubs. The multifunctional complex, with a total area of more than 150,000 sq m, combines the Central Bus Station and Schelkovskiy shopping and entertainment centre, which has more than 250 boutiques and chain stores, cafes and restaurants, and a multiplex cinema. The Schelkovskiy transport interchange hub will operate on the "dry feet" principle and will be able to serve more than 200,000 people per day.

The Schelkovskiy transport interchange hub includes the Central Bus Station, the Schelkovskaya metro station, intercept car parking and stops for the city's overground passenger transport system. The multifunctional complex will allow passengers to make quick, comfortable transfers between different modes of transport, as well as use the services of the shopping and entertainment centre, all without going outside.

The new building has 11 floors - 6 above-ground and 5 underground. Externally, it resembles a "house-boat", designed by the famous international bureau Global Architecture Development. The translucent facade with its wave-like geometry is lined with corrugated aluminium panels and decorated with nine-metre golden clocks with the designer’s pattern and red arrows, which will become the hallmark of the complex and the entire neighbourhood.

The Central Bus Station occupies part of the first and sixth floors, which are connected by three lifts designed for 26 people each. At the bottom, there are seven platforms for local and interregional buses, while on the top floor of the building, there are six platforms serving long-distance routes, which buses access via a 200-metre overpass with an integrated smart system. This engineering solution, chosen by the Kievskaya Ploshchad Group of Companies, means transport and passenger flows can be divided up within the transport interchange hub site.

The commissioning of the complex will help reduce traffic in the Schelkovskoye Shosse, 9th Parkovaya and Uralskaya Ulitsa districts (buses will leave the station only heading out of Moscow). Passengers will have access to 150 intercity routes in 12 directions - to Yaroslavl, Rybinsk, Nizhny Novgorod, Suzdal and other cities.

The Schelkovskiy shopping and entertainment centre is home to more than 250 tenants, including famous-name boutiques, chain stores of the world's leading brands and new restaurant concepts, making the transport hub one of the largest employers in the Eastern District and an iconic location on the map of the capital.

The building houses help terminals, vending machines, an information kiosk, a mother-and-child room, cinema, fitness club and swimming pool, children's entertainment centre, plus underground three-storey parking with 957 places, equipped with charging for electric cars. High-speed Internet access is provided by a next-generation Wi-Fi network based on professional equipment from HPE Aruba - Wi-Fi 6. The entire infrastructure of the complex is accessible to reduced-mobility visitors - the building has a special ticket office, doors and lifts adapted for wheelchair access, and a special recreation area for people with disabilities. 

God Nisanov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Kievskaya Ploshchad Group of Companies: 

"The construction of the multifunctional complex is one of the most important socially significant projects of the Kievskaya Ploshchad Group of Companies. I am glad that Muscovites and visitors to the city can now use a convenient, comfortable, multifunctional space organised on the "dry feet" principle. The capital now has a new, modern, world-class bus station with well-developed infrastructure. It will improve the transport situation in the Schelkovskoye Shosse area, create more than a thousand additional jobs and provide residents in the east of the capital with quality leisure and new shopping opportunities."

 

 

Reference: During construction of the Schelkovskiy transport interchange hub, the most modern construction technologies were used. One of these is UP-DOWN, the so-called semi-closed construction method used in projects with underground floors. "Wall in the ground" technology was also used, which meant the reinforced concrete walls of the underground structures could be built even before the excavation stage.
