Tashir Group has announced commissioning of a business-class residential complex, Dirigible, on Profsoyuznaya Street in Moscow.
The object's unusual upper-floor architecture imitates an airship. In 2004 the project won a special Most Original Architecture award at Novy Dom 2004, a competition of residential housing designs.
This 40-storey complex with the total area of over 90K sq m is located in one of the most populous and prestigious districts of Moscow's South-West and offers one, two, three and four-bedroom open plan apartments, 55 to 160 sq m in size. There are 444 apartments overall.
Dirigible's infrastructure includes offices, a shopping center, restaurants, a kindergarten and a school. The complex is walled, and on-site 24h security service will keep the peace. There is also an underground parkade with a car wash—and a helipad on the roof.
The historical Vorontsovsky Park and estate of the same name, listed as a heritage site and garden preserve by Moscow's administration, are located nearby.
With Dirigible, Tashir not only provided more residential space for the south-western part of the city but also rid it of a long-frozen construction site. The Group bought the building when it had only 18 floors and in just one year and a half turned it into a 40-storey tower with a complete infrastructure.
