It is a complex of storage facilities situated on the cognominal island

New Holland has a central basin which in 1765 was linked with the Moika River and the Kryukov Canal. The island's perimeter is made up of wooden storage facilities (1732-38, architect I. K. Korobov), where ship timber for the Admiralty Shipyard was dried and stored employing the so-called Dutch technique. This was also where small row boats were built. In 1765-88, an architectural monument, a complex of stone storehouses in the style of early Classicism (architects S. I. Chevansky, I. K. Gerard; facades from 1765, architect J. B. Vallin de la Mothe) was erected along New Holland's southern and eastern sides.
