Chinese electronics maker Huawei, which has been plagued by U.S. sanctions for the past couple of years and has been unable to release new 5G-enabled smartphones, is doing great in other segments.
As it became known, the company bought the Kantemirovsky business center in the Petrogradsky district of St. Petersburg for 5 billion rubles. The transfer of employees to the new office will allow the corporation to receive a number of benefits from Smolny and solve the problem with personnel, since it is easier to find IT specialists in the St. Petersburg market than in Moscow.
Business center “Kantemirovsky” has an area of 50 thousand m2… The seller of the asset is Felix Dlin, a business partner of Mikhail Gutseriev, co-owner of Russneft. It is believed that the company will carry out renovations to create a new research and development center. As part of the object there are historical buildings, so it will not be possible to demolish and rebuild.
The successful location of the Kantemirovsky business center in St. Petersburg will allow attracting personnel and building relationships with universities. Now Huawei occupies space in several objects in Moscow at once. The headquarters of the corporation is located in the Krylatskie Hills business park, where the company rents 20 thousand sq. M.2… The corporation occupies additional space in the capital in Smolensky Passage II (12.5 thousand sq.2) and the SOK Rybakov Tower coworking space (2.3 thousand sq.2). The R&D center of Huawei is located in the Beta Center on Altufevskoe shosse.
This company was not enough, but earlier it became known that Huawei was unable to buy out the Novospassky business center from ex-bankers Dmitry and Alexey Ananyev in Moscow.
