Lopukhinsky Garden

The fate of Lopukhinsky garden is being decided at the Arbitration Court of St. Petersburg and Leningrad Oblast. RBI holding company went to the court to appeal against decision of the Committee of State Control on Protection of Culture Monuments in Saint-Petersburg to restore Lopukhinsky garden within company’s protected borders.

      The holding was going to erect a 9-storey hotel on garden territory across the street from Kamenny Island on the banks of Malaya Nevka River. In 2004, after the historical and cultural examination carried out by "Association of St. Petersburg Researchers" LLC, a lot of 4.6 thousand m² was excluded from the monument territory, and then RBI got the permission to use it for construction. However, after protests of St. Petersburg dwellers, All-Russian Society for the Preservation of Historical and Cultural Monuments carried out another examination.

        In August 2013, on the basis of this examination CSPCP issued an order requiring inclusion of the former water-motor station area, owned by construction company in the territory of Lopukhinsky garden. Furthermore, the Smolny Committee on Governmental contracts already placed an order for general overhauling of Lopukhinsky garden. The contractor has to repair the fence, bridges and roads, to strengthen the riverbanks, to plant new trees, shrubs and flowers till mid-summer of 2015.
