When will the reconstruction of the Children's World on Lubyanka
Shop "Detsky Mir" on Lubyanka Square in Moscow, built in 1957, was closed for renovation in 2008. The duration of repair work was more than planned, but after a few years is expected to be completed.
Work on the project store "Detsky Mir" on Lubyanka Square began in 1953 under the direction of Alexei Nikolaevich Dushkin. The curator of this work was the Minister of Trade of the USSR Anastas Mikoyan. Opening facilities to the public was held June 6, 1957. In the 1990s, the area's unique areas of the building began to be leased to companies that do not have the realization of children's products is not the slightest relationship. On the territory of the store located travel agencies, banks. It even sold cars. But most of the area of the construction is still used for the sale of goods for children. In 2005, the "Children's World" was declared a monument of architecture. But the status of the protected object received only the building itself, but its interiors. And in July 2008, the store was closed for reconstruction. Lack of interior architectural monument status store has allowed the company's employees "Sistema-Hals" to destroy them almost completely. Leaders of the organization was justified by the fact that thus saved the building from the disaster threatening him collapse. It was assumed that the interior of the updated "Children's World" will in no way similar to the original. Marketing of these plans did not come. In 2009, the barbaric "reconstruction" was suspended, and resumed in 2011 by the same company (change of name to "Gals-Development"), but under the direction of architect Pavel Yuryevich Andreev. He proposed a new concept of preserving the "Children's World", according to which many of the store interior elements although rebuilt, but to make the most similar to the original. This building adapted to modern standards of fire safety and accessibility for people with disabilities, and its spontaneous collapse will be fully excluded. According to specialists, an updated "Children's World" once again open its doors for big and small visitors in 2013 or 2014.
