“Today we are presenting the first six area planning projects. They are located in the Western, Eastern and North-Western District of Moscow, they are different in area, complexity, and planning features. We were trying to create a high-quality and accessible urban environment in the renovation areas, and all the projects were designed with due respect to the existing social and cultural facilities, daycare facilities, schools, clinics, and transport infrastructure,” said the chief architect of Moscow Sergey Kuznetsov.
The first public hearing will take place in the following neighborhoods: Solntsevo, Ochakovo-Matveevskoe, Ivanovo, Metrogorodok, Northern Tushino, Mitino. They will have new contemporary areas with social and transport infrastructure, parking lots, landscaping, safe playgrounds, recreation areas and athletic facilities.
The planning projects were developed by Moskomarkhitektura, Institute of General Plan of Moscow, NIiPI Gradplana, GlavAPU. The area planning projects contain such indicators as population size in the neighborhood or district, possible demolition and new construction, as well as the “red lines” – the boundaries of areas under existing facilities or facilities to be built. During the public hearings, the residents will see the planning projects they have provided feedback on.
Kniazhevskaya reported that after the public hearings the deadline for new construction and resident relocation will be determined.
