New residential buildings planned for relocation programme presented at Moscow Urban Forum
An example of a floor from one of the residential buildings to be built under the relocation programme can be found at Pavilion 75. Apart from flats, the expo also features courtyard improvement elements with playgrounds and lawns.
A Moscow housing relocation programme showroom can be found at VDNKh. “It shows an example of a floor from a new block of flats intended for the relocation of Muscovites,” said Head of the Urban Development Department Sergei Lyovkin at the Moscow Urban Forum. “Anyone who wants to see the future flats can come here to Pavilion No. 75 and see for themselves what the doors and the floor will look like and how security will be provided.” Apart from flats, the expo also features courtyard improvement elements with playgrounds and lawns.
The programme stipulates the construction of new-generation monolith and panel buildings. Quality and comfortable housing, built upon up-to-date designs using energy-saving technologies, will replace the old five-storey buildings. “Certain tested materials are being used under the control of our labs; the best Russian technologies will be used,” Mr Lyovkin said.
The Moscow Urban Forum, dedicated to the development of agglomerations and a new world map, opened today at VDNKh. It will continue until 12 July and bring together over 400 speakers, over 11,000 participants in the business programme and 30,000 visitors. The business programme of this year’s forum, the largest in its 7-year long history, will feature panel discussions, roundtables, presentations, public interviews and also conferences. Visitors will be offered lectures, workshops, MUF Fest films and the MUF Expo.
