This project was developed by MGP (Minskgrazhdanproject) in 2009-2010 for the strategic inverstor (at the time) of the High Technologies Park Belarus – Svitland Development Ltd. by Fishman Group (Israel). Clear and logical masterplan conception was designed by Giora Gur Architects (Israel). In my responsibilities were to adjust the conception to the local building codes, analysis and corrections according to the requirements of the involved parties, such as HTP administration, Minsk municipality, Belarusian Academy of Sciences (owner of the land), Road police etc. We also designed the detailed plans for first two buildings out of the 500+ millions USD development program.
Unfortunately Svitland Development HTP plan was badly affected by the World economic crisis of the 2008-2009 remained only one office building and several low-cost residential towers of prefab panels. The rest of the HTP territories were teared apart between other stakeholders, losing the integrity and value.
