At the moment, the Moscow City Heritage Agency has agreed on a project for future conservation work. The restorers will have to dismantle the structures that distort the historical appearance, restore the basement, and put the facade of the building in order. Specialists will pay special attention to decorative elements: cornices, sandrids, window frames and door frames, ”said the head of the Moscow City Cultural Heritage Department
