The investment project is being implemented by philanthropist and temple builder Alexei Kakhidze with the support of Tavrida and the Synodal Department for Youth Affairs of the Russian Orthodox Church. Completion of the first stage of construction is scheduled for the first quarter of 2024. In the future, when investment proposals are received, cultural objects of other Russian religions may appear on the territory of the art cluster.
