Sad to see old Stalinist facade leave, it had its charm and did fit in old town surroundings really well, way better than black box that is under construction. That old facede even got into some BBC "War & Peace" tv series shots and looked perfectly, definitely not out of place.

Good, another stalinistic pseudo-neoclassicism trash will be demolished. Next will be this one:

I do not understand why you think these buildings are trash when they look comparably a lot better in this particular environment than these new unimaginative boring black boxes. Neoclassical architecture perfectly belongs in old town.
Do you simply for no reason hate Soviet architecture?
Well I think new run of the mill cubic buildings are definition of "trash".

There are many beautiful examples from soviet times that look a lot better than what we managed to build during our independence (M. Mažvydas library) I also really like "Profsąjungų Rūmai" or "Žalgiris stadium". For me that architecture with ornamentation and classical details is incomparably better looking that glass buildings like "Europa" or "Arfa". Many still retain hate for what soviets did and so many years latter for no rason want to unleash it on everything they see remaining from those times. I think this is mistake and future generations will also feel animosity towards our destruction just as we feel it towards soviet one. This is no better and no different than what they did - trying to get rid of past reminders from different rule. If we want to have healthy variety of architectural heritage with different styles and from different periods one day this destructive circle has to be stopped.

At least new buildings are what they are, not distorted copies of the former architectural style without any sense of symmetry and how classical elements should look, blend into fasade.

Or "modernization"/"looking for new way" in English, German... cities, when they could rebuild some, if not majority of buildings, that were damaged during WWII.

Before war it was an empty space where those decorated neoclassical Stalinist buildings are standing. So in this particular occasion they not only did not destroy anything classical but also build something neoclassical that fits so well it can be used to recreate Napoleonic war period envirement.

Of course I do not deny the fact that Soviets in other locations destroyed a lot of heritage.

Stalinistic style buildings are almost all pure trash, there are few exceptions, but just few, generally they are distorted neoclassicism copies with communistic sings and low quality building materials.

Soviet architects had no idea to strictly follow the traditions of real classicism, they obeyed to the spirit of the times and Stalin's personal ambitions.

For me ugly buildings are ugly, and beautiful buildings are beautiful, and you saying that wish to see 2 beautiful buildings like this get destroyed and replaced by modern carbage is stupid, it doesnt matter if most stalinist building are ugly and cheap, those 2 in particular are/were beautiful.

Few in Moscow, that looks ok, but exceptions don't make other buildings or this style beautiful.

Lima, Peru - San Luis building
An abandoned and rundown building in downtown Lima, Peru is about to get redeveloped into prime offices, a mall and a cultural center. The project takes almost a full city block. The area in which it is located was and is very dilapidated. However, restoration projects of old buildings and their reconversion to office and retail spaces are revitalizing this part of downtown.
