Large shopping centers to be built near all Moscow metro stations

Large shopping centers to be built near all Moscow metro stations

Large shopping centers will appear near all underground stations in Moscow.

The project will yield billions of rubles in additional profits to the city metro.

The bulk of construction and maintenance costs will be financed from the metro’s own budget and the rest will come from private investors.

At present, the metro rents areas in underground passages to small retailers but these rent payments are only a tiny fraction of the profits collected from ticket sales.
