Building behind russian church in Sofia canseled

 The offer for building of a structure immediately behind the Russian Church in the centre of Sofia was withdrawn on April 22 by the same person who entered the suggestion, Sofia's leader architect Petar Dikov.
Dikov told he nullified the offer because he had not seen the draft  for the plan, Bulgarian daily Dnevnik told.
Next to the church is the construction of the Moscow Culture and Business Centre.
The area in the centre of Sofia is at the situation of the municipality of Moscow under an consent between the Sofia mayor Stefan Sofianski and his Russian colleague Yuri Luzhkov. The consent consists of a clause which gives the right for erection to the Russian centre on the plot next to the edifice in which currently the centre is housed. The complementary building of two floors with a total constructed are of 900 sq m was mediocre as reversion for buildings of the ex- Russian embassy which were subverted during World War 2.
In accordance with  the drawings, the Moscow Culture and Business centre was going to be spacioused with 4 floors, including subterranean.
"The offer has been withdrawn so that it can be changed and will be tabled again. Engagement towards the Russian side will be preserved," municipal councilor Atanas Cheresharov of the Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) was cited as telling.
Civic association Spasenie 2000 remonstrated against the building. The communication wanted to see the consent terminated or changed so the Moscow municipality would get property on Shipka street where the ex- diplomatic block is, which has a large yard, Dnevnik announced.
