We see Originals Moscow in Kuznetsky Most as a unique retail project following the hottest trends in design, concept and ambience music while fully understanding the target audience interests.”
Natalia Ozernaya, Deputy Head of Street Retail, Moscow, JLL, commented: “For many years now, Kuznetsky Most has remained one of the most-wanted streets for flagship retail projects. Recent pedestrianization turned the street into a comfortable urban area and a place for regular festivals, making Kuznetsky Most a locals’ place of choice for going out as well as a tourist attraction. There is always a heavy traffic which makes the street attractive for the largest brands, Russian as well as global. For adidas Originals’ unique concept, we have found a TSUM-area space with high arched ceilings and huge windows, fully meeting the image of a country-unique brand’s flagship store.”
