The cylinder tank was assembled fr om several acrylic panels having the width of up to 24 cm; these were glued together into 30-ton cylinders. The latter were then delivered to the site wh ere a giant aquarium was put together using a 90-meter crane through the dismantled roof of the shopping center.

“The crane operator cab was out of sight of the tank installed,” said Mr. Kuznetsov, “and for the proper installation of cylinder panels we used video surveillance technologies.” In his words, a hydraulic elevator will run inside the tank so that visitors would be able to move between different levels, sliding as it were through the water column, surrounded by numerous marine creatures.

The shopping mall on Kutuzovsky Avenue with the gross built area of 140,000 sq m. and the gross leasable area of 60,000 sq m. is slated for opening in 2016.
