After more than a century of producing chocolates and other sweets, the famed Krasny Oktyabr factory, opposite the Church of Christ the Saviour, was finally forced to close. The closure happened as part of an effort to remove industry from the historic centre of the capital. This prime real estate, which boasts the best views of the Kremlin, is being converted into high-rent real estate. However, in a rare and enlightened move, the historic industrial building is being preserved. The garages and other outbuildings have already been taken over by artists for gallery and studio space, known as Art Strelka . A small museum will remain open to document the history of the complex and the company.
