Moscow, Russia 2009
September 14, 2009
One of the main residential districts of Moscow, Kropotkinskaya has been almost entirely demolished and rebuilt by many new and young Russian architects. It is now a highly fashionable district to live with new elite residential compounds. Apartments in this district sell for as high as $80 million US. Much of the older architecture has been lost and heritage groups are fighting the government on this. Security in the district is strict and building by building.
