In 2004, the site was acquired by Iranian investors, NMT Company, registered in Belarus. The President and founder of the business is Dr Jamshid Aminazad.
The design was proposed by the architect Anrei Ilyinov, who lives in Vitebsk, Belarus. That was one of 22 proposed designs that won.
That is a multi-purpose complex, consisting of the former 11-storied building after 3 upper stories were dismantled and a new 3-storied building along Sovietskaya Street.
The construction goes on in3 stages. The first stage of the complex was commissioned in 2013 with the opening of the shopping area and a restaurant. The total amounted 37 Mio US dollars.
After the completion of the project, that will be a big international trade center, comprising numerous offices, exhibition halls, services and a 5-storied underground parking for 260 cars. The top of the Y-shaped old high-rise was decorated with a dome in oriental style. Its balconies were decorated with expensive railings. The 3-storied building adjacent to the old one accommodates the shopping center today.
At last the work started.
