Originally finite on the Arbat-Pokrovskaya lineit was planned to make the station "Rozhdestveno". Output in this case would be carried out to the residential complex being built in 2012. However, later on in this place only cottages were erected. The need for a subway has disappeared. It was decided to build a station, the exit from which would be carried out at the intersection of Mitinskaya Street and Pyatnitskoye Highway. After all, this is a very densely populated area.

Metro "Pyatnickoe highway" was built for twoyears. In 2009, the residents of the city knew about the forthcoming opening of the station in the north-west of Moscow. However, the name in the project was different. On the metro scheme, the station under construction is designated as "Pyatnitskaya". But in the center of the capital there is a street that carries the same name. To avoid misunderstanding, the westernmost station of the Arbat-Pokrovskaya branch received a modern name.

In 2014, the question of renaming it again becamerelevant. Russia was preparing to celebrate the anniversary of victory in the Great Patriotic War. The Council of Veterans suggested calling the station "Oboronnaya". The proposal was approved by the city authorities. However, still, while driving through Mitino, passengers hear the following in the performance of a pleasant female voice: "The next station is" Pyatnitskoe Shosse ".

The metro station is usually built according to the projectengineers who won the corresponding competition. What principles are guided by the members of the jury, choosing the best project, is unknown. Probably, the practicality and the aesthetic side play a role. Anyway, the competition for the design of "Pyatnitskoye Highway" was won by the employees of the company "Mosinzhproekt".
