Synopsis >

Not far from the Kremlin lies a prime piece of real estate that will eventually be transformed from barren to beautiful. One of the few remaining underdeveloped sites in Moscow's historic downtown, it used to house the landmark Hotel Rossiya until it was demolished in 2006. Now, Moscow authorities plan to build a 13-hectare, 32-acre park on the site, a project meant to showcase President Putin's effort to make Russia's capital more liveable.
