The building was built in 1960. In Soviet times, there was a popular shop “House of Toys” here.

The overhaul of a nine-story neoclassical building on Kutuzovsky Prospekt has been completed. The building is located next to the hotel “Ukraine” on the front of the street and is visible to everyone who enters one of the largest highways of the capital.
