Krasnodar, 15 September. Merchant Kirkor Kior Ogly’s Mill in Krasnodar will reportedly be restored.
The owner of the building, the regional directorate of Rosimushchestvo (Federal Property Management Agency) has assigned 1.3 million roubles for the reconstruction. The regional administration’s press service released that Kior Ogly’s Mill was erected at the end of the 19th – the beginning of the 20th centuries. It was the biggest mill of the prerevolutionary Yekaterinodar. This sample of late classicism is a remarkable specimen of industrial architecture. For a long while, the building has not been used or heated; its roof has been totally lost; the walls are dilapidated.
Vice Governor Sergei Boldin was quoted as saying that local people had more than once asked to restore the building which is one of the symbolic constructions for the city. Following the approval of protection obligations, the authorities began to coerce the owner into performing restoration works. They are to begin soon.
Currently, a competition has been arranged for the elaboration of design estimates for primary conservation works.
