About the place
This is a 7-story tower building built in 1949 according to the design of the architect I. Kozliner. The first floor initially housed a café, later a department store, and today this floor is rented out to shops.
Residential apartments occupy floors 2 through 6, and the top floor is a covered terrace that serves as an observation deck. The facades of the tower building are horizontally divided into tiers, with the upper tier being the most grand and solemn, with decorative elements giving an impression of monumentality.
The main element of the second tier is the “palace window,” which is stylized in the Italian Renaissance style. The balconies have different shapes and placement principles, and on the 7th floor there is a terrace decorated with triple arched openings with vaults and balustrade railings.
In 2002, the building was covered with a metal gable roof with a belvedere and a spire, which gave the building even more refinement and grandeur.
