Construction works for a building of supervisory authorities kicked off at the site of the Big Port St. Petersburg based Marine Multipurpose Complex Bronka (MMPK Bronka), the project investor Fenix LLC said.

This building will house the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) and the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor, CPS).

The total area of the two-story administrative building is 1,267 sq. m. The building will be completed in March 2015 and the MMPK "Bronka" commissioning is scheduled for the autumn 2015.

The Marine Multipurpose Complex Bronka (MMPK Bronka) is being built on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland, in the place where the dam and the ring road border the territory of Lomonosov. The Bronka Complex will comprise three specialized facilities: a container terminal encompassing 107 hectares, Ro-Ro terminal of 57 ha and logistics center of 42 ha.  Container terminal will feature the 1.176 m-long waterfront (including 5 berths). The waterfront of rolling cargo terminal will be 630 meters (3 berths). The Bronka Phase 1 capacity is projected to be 1.45 million TEUs and 260,000 units of Ro-Ro cargoes. The facility’s container throughput is planned to be increased to 1.9 million TEUs.

The Bronka Multipurpose Complex will be able to handle Panamax containerships and the ferries of Finnstar class. Private investors are expected to inject nearly RUB 43.7 billion in the project with the Russian Government investment at some RUB 15.2 billion. Implementation of the Bronka project is expected to help generate 2,300 jobs at sea terminals alone. Upon completion of the outer harbor facilities annual direct tax payments to the budget of St. Petersburg will be at RUB 1.7 billion (plus indirect tax due to a multiplier effect – RUB 5.1 bn), the federal budget will get RUB 2.0 billion a year (RUB 5.9bn).
