Another joint Belarusian-Chinese project has started today - the construction of a modern hotel and business complex in the Tsentralnyi district of Minsk. On July 20 a capsule was laid here with a message to future generations in Belarusian and Chinese.
The design occupies an area of 140,000 square meters and is unique for Belarus. The high-risers, from 9 to 25 floors, will house offices, a hotel and even a clinic. A fitness center and 8 tennis courts are also included in the plan.
The multifunctional quarter with good infrastructure is focused primarily on modern lifestyle.
The amount of direct investment from the Chinese corporation will be $120 million.
