The construction of the seven-storey complex with a total floorspace of 45,600 square metres, which houses both sambo and boxing centres, was completed in 2022. The facility was developed by the International Sambo Federation in collaboration with the Boxing Federation of Moscow.

The most striking feature of the building is a sloping glass ceiling with an optical effect and a glass curtain wall, which allows the public to watch athletes in training from the street. It is the first sports facility in Moscow with this feature.
