Troyitsky Shopping Mall

Last updated

Troyitsky Shopping Mall was a shopping mall in the Ukrainian capital city Kiev in front of the Olimpiysky National Sports Complex. In 2008 it was demolished and on its place was created Trinity Square (Troyitska Ploshcha).

The mall's construction has been halted because of concerns that the adjacent stadium would not have enough free space to accommodate the large number of tourists coming to matches of the UEFA Euro 2012 championship. The Union of European Football Associations has banned games at the stadium until their concerns with the Olympic Plaza are addressed. [1]

On November 1, 2007, the Kiev City Council adopted a resolution to refer to the firm responsible for the plaza's construction, with a proposal to compensate 200 million hryvnias for proposed demolition of the Olympic Plaza. [2] The Mayor of Kiev Leonid Chernovetsky stated on November 19 that he has signed a bill that would allow demolition of the Olympic Plaza. [3]

Venues of the 1980 Summer Olympics Wikimedia list article

For the 1980 Summer Olympics, a total of twenty-eight sports venues were used. The first venue used for the Games was built in 1923. With the creation of the Spartakiad in Moscow in 1928, more venues were constructed. Central Lenin Stadium Grand Arena was built in 1956 for that year's versions of the Spartkiad. A plan in 1971 to construct more sports venues by 1990 was initiated, but accelerated in 1974 when Moscow was awarded the 1980 Games. The new venues to be used for the Games were completed in 1979. During the Games themselves at the permanent road cycling venue, the first ever constructed, the largest margin of victory was recorded in the individual road race cycling event since 1928. The Grand Arena hosted the football final that was played in a rainstorm for the third straight Olympics. After the 1991 break of the Soviet Union, the venues in Kiev, Minsk, and Tallinn would be located in Ukraine, Belarus, and Estonia, respectively. Luzhniki Stadium, formerly Grand Arena, continues to be used, and it was affected by the Luzhniki disaster in 1982. The stadium served as host for the IAAF World Championships in Athletics in 2013. Another venue, the Moscow Canoeing and Rowing Basin, served as host to the ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships in 2014.
