The classical style mansion was built in 1875 by the architect Melgren. In 1863, entrepreneur Gustav Ivanovich List acquired the estate on the Sofiyskaya Embankment for his workshops. After the fire, the complex of buildings was rebuilt into a factory workshop for the production of pumps and fire equipment. There used to be an office of the plant. During the First World War, the sons of Gustav started the shells production. Today the mansion is listed as a cultural heritage site.
