«The first residents are to be housed in the beginning of 2018. We plan to build a pedestrian boulevard where Hermitage-Moscow Museum will be located. It is to be commissioned in 2020. This is a thematic center having the capacity to annually host about 15 thousand guests», noted Mr. Molchanov. Also, we plan to build embankments of four kilometers long having width from 90 to 200 m. The first part of the embankment is to be ready in 2018«.
According to the Mayor’s opinion, the territory of the former automotive factory will become one of the strategic megaprojects of Moscow development for the foreseeable future. «Obviously, it is very important to improve the transport accessibility on this territory, because even now it is in a bad condition. That is why, it is planned to build about thirty kilometers of a road network and several bridge crossings», emphasized Sergey Sobyanin. «This year we are to commission a Moscow Ring Railway line with two platforms on the territory of the complex under construction. Thus, two metro stations, two Moscow Central Ring line stations, and the relevant road network will operate».
