In the place of demolished houses in the center of Moscow there will be squares and parks.
As Prefect of the Central Administrative District of the capital Sergey Baidakov told reporters today, in the near future it is planned to create squares and parks at the site of the demolished houses.
According to him, the concept of development of the historical center of the Russian capital, which was adopted today at a meeting of the city government, implies a complete rejection of the construction of new offices and the creation of additional recreation areas. “If earlier a new commercial or urban building was being built on the site of the demolished house, now a fundamental decision has been made to improve the liberated territories: they will be planted greenery, new recreation areas will appear here for the convenience of the residents of the center,” the prefect said.
According to him, the concept is focused on the "peaceful" coexistence of 700 thousand "indigenous" residents of the capital's center and more than 3 million "arriving" here daily from other regions, from the outskirts of the city, employees, visitors to shops and cultural facilities.“We are in favor of developing a unified transport concept, we propose using the Moscow River, not only as a transport artery, but also as an ecological zone,” the prefect said, adding that now the work on the withdrawal of industrial enterprises from the city center is almost complete. “Non-ecological production is not the place here, but in the center, if necessary, high-tech enterprises can open,” said the prefect.
