The Digital Business Space platform won in the category ‘Best Redevelopment Project’ at the sixth annual professional real estate awards Move Realty Awards 2020. The winners in 28 categories were determined by the expert council of the competition.

“Over the past few years, the Digital Business Space has become one of the key elements in the development of the business climate in Moscow. Since 2017, about 1.5 thousand events have been held here which were attended by more than 210 thousand people. Among them there are representatives of technology companies, startups, as well as investors. With the help of this platform, they not only participate in useful events for themselves but also can procure additional funding, find partners and customers," Alexey Fursin, Head of the Moscow Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development noted.

The building where the Digital Business Space now operates was built in 1977, that time the Novorossiysk cinema was located here. Back in the era of perestroika, the cultural and business center Central House of Entrepreneurs was opened here that also acted under the current Government of Moscow. The center held events aimed at supporting small and medium-sized enterprises.

In October 2017, the building was opened after reconstruction. The facade was faced with light-conducting concrete, infused with thousands of fiber-optic threads, and the interior space was completely rebuilt. The latest audio-visual equipment was installed on the entire site: LED, plasma and LCD panels, an interactive video wall, professional speaker systems and a seamless LED screen (the largest in Moscow at that time). Currently, the Digital Business Space has two halls, six classrooms, two lecture halls, three spacious foyers, a loft and a coworking space where small events and large international business events can be held.

In August last year, the site has already received recognition from the international architectural community. The project became a finalist of the European award The Plan Award in the Renovation nomination. Experts made a note of the bold architectural solution. For the first time, the facade was completely faced with light-conducting concrete. Its plates, depending on the program, can change the color of both the entire surface and individual segments.

Digital Business Space - an innovative urban platform where entrepreneurs can find like-minded people in the field of advanced technology development. Its operator is the Moscow Innovation Agency, subordinated to the Moscow Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development.
