The Polovtsev Mansion is one of the best St. Petersburg Neo-Classical edifices, built to the design of I. Fomin in the years of 1911-1913. In ground plan, this two-story building has the elongated U-shape with two wings, typical for classical architecture. The central part has a portico comprising two rows of Ionic columns which lends splendor to the front entrance. The enfilade of rooms is also a traditional classical feature.
After the Bolshevik revolution of 1917, the building was converted into a senior citizen assisted care complex for elderly industrial workers.
