Important to know!!!

School Of Management To Move to 18th-Century Palace

By Yekaterina Dranitsyna

Staff Writer

Setl City has won an open tender for the reconstruction of Mikhailovskaya Dacha, an ensemble of palaces and parks in Petrodvorets, the company said Tuesday in a statement. After the reconstruction, Mikhailovskaya Dacha, which is an 18th-century architectural monument, will house the Higher School of Management of St. Petersburg State University.

Setl City, which as the general contractor should complete the project by 2010, according to the agreement, will carry out the planning and reconstruction.

We will reconstruct the buildings of great historical and cultural importance. In addition, we will have to adjust old buildings for their new educational purposes and ensure that they meet all the modern standards of business education. This makes the project considerably more difficult,” said Maxim Shubarev, president of Setl Group, a holding company that owns Setl City.

The parks and palaces at Mikhailovskaya Dacha occupy 104 hectares of land. At present, the total area of the existing buildings is 22,000 square meters. After the reconstruction and construction of new buildings, the total area will increase to about 100,000 square meters. According to the contract, the total cost of the project is about $300 million.

The complex will comprise the main building, a scientific research institute, administrative facilities, dormitories and infrastructure. By the end of 2010, the Business School Center, a hotel and fitness center with a pool will be opened.

A real estate expert suggested that the reconstruction of Mikhailovskaya Dacha will hardly generate any significant profits, and that for Setl City it is a promotional project rather than a commercial venture.

“The project of the so-called ‘St. Petersburg Harvard’ could be compared to the Baltic Pearl, Okhta-Center and new football stadium on Krestovsky Island. It will be of the same importance, not in terms of the total investment or total area of the construction, but in relation to its influence on the image of St. Petersburg,” said Mikhail Vasiliev, head of marketing at Central Real Estate Agency.

“This project will improve the State University’s image around the world,” Vasiliev said.

He pointed out that in 2005, a ‘scientific city’ was established in Petergof, after which authorities announced a project to create a St. Petersburg Silicone Valley.

“A Northwest region educational center is being specially constructed at Petergof, and the new business schools will be located in the same area. These large-scale projects could be followed by the development of residential buildings, and modernization of infrastructure in the nearby districts,” Vasiliev suggested.

The Graduate School of Management of St. Petersburg State University aims to combine a traditional university education with the latest innovations and business practices. By joining forces with leading education centers and international corporations, the Graduate School of Management hopes to create “new knowledge and a new model of business education”.




In contrast with the Skolkovo Moscow School of Management, which is financed exclusively by private companies, the Graduate School of Management is a state-run project. In addition to private donations, the school receives considerable funding from the state budget. Its advisory board includes a number of high-ranking state officials



In 2006, the Management Faculty of St. Petersburg State University began to transform into the Graduate School of Management.


A new campus is being constructed at Mikhailovskaya Dacha palace and park ensemble in Strelna and about 100,000 square meters of facilities should be created there by 2010, worth about $329 million in investment.



The Graduate School of Management currently employs 65 tutors and about 1,400 students are enrolled on its programs. By 2015 the school expects to have 1,800 students and 400 graduates of MBA and EMBA programs a year.



The International EMBA will be run in cooperation with HEC-Paris.

This is my translation of a Russian newspaper, I am sorry for all the mistakes that I've done in my understanding ...

Matvienko said that the palace of music would be finished by the end of the year.

Currently, are already completed the work of the roof, attic, balconies and decorative facades; no more than paint and finishes to complete. In October, technicians installed ventilation systems and fire (which is difficult in such historics decors).

The pre-condition of the palace should be respected; on the restoration, the ballroom has regained its original colors (the porphyry was found under layers of paint).

A very nice ornamental painting was discovered in the former chamber of the Grand Duke.


The specialists concluded that the restoration was not so enormous because the palace was finally in a good state of preservation, as a consequence the operation has nothing to do with a reconstruction. The  restored , remains furnishings to restore and rebuild the other things thanks to images from the period.

Vassili,
This probably should be moved to Grand Duke Aleksei Aleksandrovich's Palace as that is what is seen in the picture.  I got a little confused that you will still talking about the Mikhailovskaya Dacha.  It is still good news that the palace is coming along so well.

Bob,

I created this topic in order  to deal with restoration projects and renovation of the city in general that's why I posted here this article on the Alexander Alexandrovitch's palace, on another hand, I'm confused I totally forgot that a special page had been made on the website. I beg your pardon for my mystake.

As you may read it, my English is a wreck (I did not done much except studying law this two last years), as a matter of fact I did not understand the words on Mikailovskaya ... my apologies once more.

Good day,
V

V.,
I hope you didn't think my suggestion was a criticism.  You add so much to the Forum.  I just thought your last post would be more appropriate in the GD Alekseii Alexandrovitch topic, because that is the palace being restored for the Palace of Music.

Please keep posting---but don't let it take away from your studies!

Some news I recently red on russia websites:

The imperial Mussorgsky (on Nevski prospekt)  is currently  engaged in the whole restoration of the monument: the balconies will refind tits original colors, the sculptures will regain their gilding, the ventilation system will be changed, the ceiling restored etc...



In the Michel castle, the restoration of interior is going on especially in the apartments of Maria Feodorovna nevertheless their prosecution in 2009 is suspended to the federal remittances.
 


The naval museum should move from the building of the former stock exchange (vassilievski Ostrov) for a new building where restoration should begin; a few images below.I do not recognize the building,do some  have any idea on the place it could be?








Thanks in advance,
Vassia
