In 1884 the lights turned on inside the Bolshevik Factory. It was the first building with electric lights in Moscow. Today, over a century later, a new revolution is happening inside the factory. This incredible red brick building, founded in 1855 by Adolf Sioux as a perfume and confectionery factory, is now being sensitively restored and transformed into a world class business destination.

Bolshevik, with its unique history and prime location on Leningradsky Prospect, offers an exciting opportunity to create a new workplace for international business. The site occupies a 6 hectare landscaped site, located in the heart of Moscow's premium commercial district. It is a short 7 minute walk to Belarusskaya metro and train station, from where Sheremetyevo Airport can be conveniently accessed in just 35 minutes. Moscow city centre and the Kremlin are a straight 10 minute drive from the site.

The Bolshevik Factory occupies a 6 hectare landscaped site, located in the heart of Moscow's premium commercial district on Leningradsky Prospect. The Belarusskaya district is a well established destination with many prime businesses and high quality supporting amenities abundant in the area.

Connections to and from Bolshevik are excellent - the site is only a 7-10 minute walk from Belarusskaya train station, from where Sheremetyevo Airport can be conveniently accessed on the express train in just 35 minutes.

The Bolshevik Factory has a unique history and is a famous heritage landmark in the city. It was founded in 1855 and has produced high quality confectionary until very recently. The origin of the existing buildings and estate reflect the French origins of the company founder Adolf Sioux. The continuous historic relationship of the building use with its enduring architectural presence in the city make the factory one of the great landmarks within Moscow’s remarkable industrial heritage.

Confectionery factory 'Bolshevik' is one of the oldest and largest enterprises of the confectionery industry in Russia. It specialized in the production of flour confectionery products, such as biscuits, cookies, crackers, wafers, cakes, and pastries. On October 1st 1884, the French architect Oscar Dio successfully completed the construction of the factory. The building had the first electric lights in Moscow.

Bolshevik provides over 80,000sqm of Grade A ‘loft-style’ office space with a wide selection of different office environments, ranging in size from 300 to 15,000sqm, to suit your specific business requirements. Great ceiling heights (from over 3m to 4.5m clear), coupled with large window areas, make for extensive natural light and ventilation. Green spaces and a combination of hard and soft landscaping surround the buildings, providing intimate and relaxing break-out spaces.

There is ample parking provision on site (both surface and underground) with a parking ratio of 1:90; however, intelligent use of space retains over 2 hectares of the site dedicated to landscaping design. A number of amenities built into the development will compliment the vibrant range of shops, restaurants, cafes and leisure spaces in the surrounding neighbourhood.

Any development with heritage at its heart is by its nature sustainable. Bolshevik is no exception - sensitive restoration of this nature effectively limits the amount of building material wastage and creation, significantly reducing energy outlay.

Advances in modern technology and improved data have recently shed more light on the true nature of sustainability. The common misconception is that an environmentally considerate building is one that is covered in solar panels and other hi-tec gadgetry. In fact, naturally well-lit spaces with good natural ventilation and shading control are the building blocks of good sustainability.

The Bolshevik project brings to light the most experienced international team on a Moscow-based refurbishment project. Collective expertise within the development team has seen the lights switched on in many successful and similar projects, such as Stanislavsky Factory, Lefort and Lootch.

Owners of the development, O1 Properties and Tactics Group, have rallied the expertise of London-based, award-winning architect, John McAslan + Partners. The practice has an extensive portfolio of international refurbishment projects, with previous experience in Moscow gained on the successful refurbishment of Stanislavsky Factory.
