The 58 ha (143 acre) site has been the subject of a high profile international design competition organised by the City of Moscow and the developer and owner of the site, Donstroy Invest. The masterplan, due for completion by 2021, will create over 1.8 million square metres of prime mixed-use space with an estimated investment of 180 billion Roubles (over €3.76 billion). Out of the 52 applications made up of 157 companies from 17 countries that the design competition attracted, the LDA Design and UHA London team emerged as the preferred team.

Bernie Foulkes, Partner at LDA Design, said: ?What set our scheme apart was the idea of using a new city park to act as the catalyst for transformation. As the designers of the London 2012 Olympic Park we used our knowledge and experience from one of Europe??s biggest regeneration projects to guide our vision for Serp and Molot.??
