The area is situated next to the Moscow International Business centre “Moscow-city”. The concept design proposes organizing two distinctive zones: residential and business. Due to insolation conditions of the plot, residential part can only be situated in the northern part of the territory, along the Shmitovsky lane.  Office buildings are therefore situated in the south, overlooking the City. The residential part consists of two 30-storey buildings, one municipal and one private, forming an angle.

The office part of the complex consists of 5 several irregularly shaped and various in height business towers. These buildings, all situated on a common stylobate form a sort of a honeycomb. The designed district represents well the historical name of the area – “Kamoushki”, meaning “stones”.
