The abandoned territories will be replaced by industrial quarters with housing and new jobs.
The capital’s industrial zones need to be developed in an integrated manner, combining residential development with the creation of new jobs. Sergei Sobyanin told about this in an interview with RIA Novosti.
“Industrial territories should be developed in an integrated manner, and no one should speculate on this land. Therefore, with the help of federal law, we are introducing the so-called integrated development of territories, on the basis of which we buy out real estate from the owners at the cadastral value, design integrated development, including the creation of jobs. Then we put it up either for an auction or for a competition, we attract investors in order to equip them comprehensively, ”the Moscow Mayor noted.
The industrial neighborhoods are characterized by mixed development: new housing, social facilities and convenient infrastructure, as well as high-tech production and offices appear there. The creation of new jobs allows avoiding pendulum migration in the city and preserving the economic potential of the territories.
“To date, we have mapped out hundreds of hectares of industrial areas that should gradually be transformed into modern, complex neighborhoods so that residents can work and live in approximately the same area. So that they do not think every morning that they have to travel tens of kilometers to other districts, to the city center, creating a pendulum migration, creating traffic jams, problems with the environment and comfort of living, ”concluded the Moscow Mayor.
The Industrial Quarters project makes it possible to bring unused and virtually abandoned urban areas into circulation. The integrated development of the territories will provide the city with about 500 thousand jobs and almost three trillion rubles of budget revenues. The total investment will amount to over seven trillion rubles.
The first agreement on the integrated development of territories was concluded in July 2020. This year the city approved reorganization of 40 sites of former industrial zones with a total area of more than 590 hectares.
