The competitive draft design of the complex of buildings of the Mezhregiongaz LLC branch was completed in 1998. The complex of buildings was supposed to be located on the embankment of the Uvod river, behind the building of the old drama theater. The main entrance of the building was oriented towards the embankment, and the high-rise part - towards F. Engels Avenue, thereby emphasizing the importance of this highway in the transport scheme of the city. Together with the construction of the building, it was planned to carry out the improvement of this part of the embankment of the Uvod River.
