Different Approaches to the Reconstruction of Vosstaniya Square in St. Petersburg

The paper is devoted to the analysis of project proposals for the construction of the multi-functional underground complex at Vosstaniya Square in St. Petersburg. It shows various options for the reconstruction of the complex transport hub to address broad social and urban problems. The first project proposals date back to the early 80-ies of XX century and provided for the creation of a transport tunnel in the cross-section of Ligovsky Prospekt and development of tunnel space under the square connected to the Moscow railway station. Later, commercial proposals were submitted providing for private investment in the construction of underground shopping malls and parking lots, which failed to address the problem of public transport. At the beginning of this century, the idea of a tunnel under Vosstaniya Square was readdressed.
