"Central Children's World" will open in late February 2015

Hals-Development announced the completion of reconstruction of the former Central Children's World, and now the Central Children's Store in Lubyanka. The official opening is scheduled for late February - early March 2015.

At the moment, about 80% of the space of the legendary store has been leased, many of which, including the Hamleys "anchor", have already started finishing. “We want to open with at least 75% of operating stores,” said Maria Shulutko, project manager for the CDM project.

The seven-story building will house 250 stores, including H&M Kids, Gucci Children's, Armani Junior and many others. Also, a large food court, a cinema and a supermarket will be opened in the shopping center, and about 20% of the total area will be allocated for the format of "educational entertainment". The building can be accessed directly from the Lubyanka metro station, and on the 1st floor there will be parking for 182 cars.

The famous children's store has been under reconstruction since July 1, 2008. Its owner was Sistema-Hals OJSC, whose main shareholder at that time was AFK Sistema, which also owned the Detsky Mir chain. The reconstruction project of the department store assumed the preservation of the building's appearance and the store's image as one of the symbols of the Russian capital, but with a complete reorganization of the internal space. Due to the 2008 crisis, the department store was transferred from the control of AFK Sistema to VTB Bank, after which the end of the store reconstruction was shifted first from 2011 to 2012, and then to 2014.
