THE NEW Old City

The A-Station Project is a meeting point of the new city life, new citizens formation and new big ideas with the rich historical heritage. Located in the very center of the capital city of Ukraine, former industrial area and military giant, abandoned and neglected, became anew relevant cluster of the urban living appreciated by the most demanding critics – the people. A success story – the A-Station Project became indeed the symbol of innovative thinking, just as its predecessor - the outstanding Arsenal Plant.


Five monuments of architecture and one of the first city squares were restored and renovated within the A-Station Project. One could learn city’s history with these objects.


The A-Station Project had a very symbolic start with the renovation of Pavilion 1 of the former Arsenal Plant.
This building is the best known of entire complex, built in 1849-1854 under the project by Alexander Gemilian – the famous Russian architect and member of Russian Academy of Arts.
The former production workshop shaped as an open polygon is considered to be one of the most sophisticated constructions of that time period in Kyiv: to build this monumental construction on bulk soil, the architect applied a complex system of foundations composed of deep beams, the bases of which are built-up with arches.

The most complex construction in 19th century Kyiv.

The fascinating story of the glorious Arsenal Plant finds its beginning in 1763: it was a number of modest wooden manufactures producing ammunition for Pechersk Fortress. Who could have thought back then that these manufactures would participate in numerous historic events and develop into a military giant?
The Arsenal Plant in XIX-XX was the largest entity in the city accounting more than 800 employees. It was the center of innovation: in 1855 the first fixtures with sewage and two 65 HP steam machines for foundry production were constructed here. 1884 the plant was already electrified. Since back then Arsenal has become and remained the industrial and development avant-garde: a pre-school and a two-grades school, a library and a free clinic – it all was established by the Plant.
Throughout its history, Arsenal has produced cameras series Kyiv and Salut, optoelectronic orientation targeting systems, medical equipment, gas meters and even LED lights.
Today A Development Company implements the ambitious A-Station Project, that aims at redevelopment of these neglected historical buildings of Arsenal and integration of its glorious history within the prosperous future of the new unconventional Kyiv.


Arsenal Pavilion 5 was constructed in 1880. It was used as blacksmith workshop. Nevertheless, it’s architecture was rather interesting. Its east side frontage is an example of Classicism. The building gained features of Modern style in the north and west frontages as the result of renovation of 1907-1910. Over the last decades this beautiful building wasn’t in use and fell to decay.
In September 2019 it became home to Kyiv Food Market – a contemporary format in food-service and restaurant industry, which commenced the great A-Station Project.
Arsenal Pavilion 7 was built in 1914-1917 and designed by outstanding architect Fleischer in rational Modernism style. Late in the 20th century the building was remodeled.
In 2020 the new working environment – Creative States of Arsenal was established here. It introduced this successful sought-after concept of co-working to the local market.
Arsenal Pavilion 12 – another work shop built in 1912-1914 under design by the architect Fleischer turned into another co-working space and a parking for residents of the A-Station Project.

Old Workshops, New Conventions

Arsenalna Aquare has witnessed the October Revolution, both World Wars and occupation. It has not always been like we know it nowadays.
The great St. Nicolas Gate or, as the locals call it, Mykilska Brama is situated next to the entrance to Arsenalna subway station – one of the deepest in Kyiv. The Gate was named after St. Nicolas monastery of 15th century torn down by Bolsheviks. The Gate is part of Kyiv Fortress, that once used to be the unified fortification complex. It was conjoined with the Building 1 of Arsenal and demolished when Hrushevskogo Street was built. Throughout different time periods, the building has been used as the military commandant’s office and the archive. Today once reserved restricted building and the great Gate hidden behind ugly fence is renovated by A Development Company. So the monument of architecture of great cultural and historic value now can actually be seen by the citizens and guests of Kyiv. The renovation of the Arsenalna Square became a logical development of the surrounding area sponsored by A Development Company and UDP by Quarter Partners. As the result, one of the oldest city squares regained its actual intended use – a public space to rest and leisure.
