The renovation of the territory of the former ZIL industrial zone is one of the largest projects of its kind in the world. Sergei Sobyanin announced this during an inspection of the “Collection” art museum and the “ZIL” station on the Troitskaya metro line under construction.

“There will be six and a half million square meters of real estate here – jobs, technology parks, housing, embankments, parks, public gardens, cultural facilities, and a sports cluster. But for all this, of course, you need a good transport system. In recent years, we have launched two MCC stations here, one metro station – Technopark, and now construction of another station is underway – ZIL. All major construction work should be completed by the end of this year,” noted the Moscow Mayor.

According to him, about 80 thousand people will live in this territory. Therefore, it is necessary to create jobs and various facilities, including cultural centers. Thanks to this, a new point of attraction for Muscovites will appear.

The territory of the former ZIL is located in the Danilovsky district between Avtozavodskaya Street, Simonovskaya Embankment and Andropov Avenue. The concept of its development, called the “ZIL Peninsula,” provides for the creation of a new urban area with residential areas, necessary social and public facilities, public and business development and the “Park of Legends” sports and entertainment cluster. In addition, modern transport infrastructure is being created here, landscaping and landscaping are being done, including the embankments of the Moscow River.

The total development area of the former ZIL industrial zone and adjacent territories will be more than 6.5 million square meters, including 5.2 million square meters of real estate that will be built directly on the territory of the former industrial zone.

ZIL metro station

Until 2015, the only station operating near the territory of the former ZIL was Avtozavodskaya on the Zamoskvoretskaya metro line. Therefore, the transport infrastructure for the future urban area had to be created almost from scratch.

In December 2015, the Technopark station on the Zamoskvoretskaya metro line opened. In the fall of 2016, traffic began along the Moscow Central Circle (MCC), two stations of which – Avtozavodskaya and ZIL – serve the territory of the former industrial zone. On the basis of the ZIL station, located in the center of a residential area under construction, a large transport hub has been created with an elevated pedestrian crossing and a passenger terminal above the tracks, stopping points for ground public transport, a parking lot for buses and a flat parking lot.

At the end of 2021, construction began on the ZIL station on the Troitskaya metro line. It will be located along the MCC at the intersection with Likhachev Avenue.

“ZIL is the final station from which you can transfer to the MCC. In the future, a transfer to the Biryulevskaya line will open here. Thus, we are creating a modern Moscow city station, which will become the center of the transport infrastructure of this territory,” wrote Sergei Sobyanin

As a result, transport services for 105 thousand residents of the Danilovsky district will improve. Today, about 30 thousand people live within walking distance of the ZIL metro station, and by 2030 their number will exceed 50 thousand. In addition, the new station will be used by numerous visitors to the CSKA Arena sports complex, the water sports center, the ZIL technology park and the Riviera shopping and entertainment center.

It is expected that when the ZIL station opens, the passenger flow of the transport hub (metro and MCC) will be 16.3 thousand people per day. It will gradually grow as new residential complexes are populated and additional places of employment appear.

The station’s only vestibule will provide passengers with access to Lisitsky Street, Likhachev Avenue, Tyufeleva Roshcha Park, the Park of Legends sports and entertainment district, residential buildings and public transport stops. You can walk from the station exit to the Tyufeleva Roshcha park in about one minute.

The opening of the Troitskaya metro line station will allow local residents to build many new routes for daily trips around the city and will significantly reduce travel time. Thus, the duration of the trip from ZIL to Akademicheskaya will become almost three times shorter – from 17 to six minutes, and to Novatorskaya – by 2.5 times (from 30 to 12 minutes).

Like all new stations, ZIL is being built to make passengers as comfortable as possible. Turnstiles with the function of paying for travel by bank card and using biometrics, ticket vending machines and clear navigation in the same style will be installed here.

The construction readiness of the station is 50 percent.

According to the president of the contractor company JSC Ingeocom Association Dmitry Evseev, the installation of the main structures has been completed. “We are moving on to engineering and finishing work, and by the end of the year we will have done everything,” he noted.

Troitskaya metro line

The Troitskaya metro line will run from the ZIL MCC station to the city of Troitsk, providing high-speed rail transport for residents of new areas of Moscow. The areas adjacent to Leninsky Prospekt will receive an additional metro line.

More than 1.5 million people live near the Trinity Line, of which over 850 thousand are within walking distance of future stations. At the same time, thanks to real estate construction, the number of residents will increase. In addition, the emergence of the metro stimulates the creation of tens of thousands of new jobs.

The Troitskaya Line will reduce the load on the southern sections of Sokolnicheskaya and Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya, as well as on the Butovskaya Line of the metro and will reduce the intensity of vehicle traffic on adjacent roads. This will improve the environmental situation. In particular, the Sokolnicheskaya metro line will be unloaded to 20 percent, Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya and Butovskaya – to 15 percent. Traffic intensity on Kaluzhskoye Highway and Leninsky Prospekt will decrease by five percent.

Thanks to the Troitskaya line, the transport accessibility of the Krasnopakhorskoye settlement, as well as the important urban facilities located there: Europe’s largest electric bus fleet, a traction battery manufacturing plant and a maintenance center for urban and commercial transport “KAMAZ” will significantly improve.


The 43.4-kilometer-long line with 17 stations will become one of the longest radii of the Moscow metro and the largest beyond the Moscow Ring Road, and the ZIL and Krymskaya stations will be interchange stations to the MCC stations of the same name. From Novatorskaya you can transfer to the Big Circle metro line, from Akademicheskaya to Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya, from Kommunarka to Sokolnicheskaya. At the ZIL station it is planned to create an interchange to the Biryulevskaya line.

The predicted passenger flow of the line at the entrance is more than 300 thousand passengers per day, and for transfers from the MCC and other metro lines – almost 230 thousand passengers per day.

Now the construction of the first stage is underway – sections of the Troitskaya line from the ZIL station to the Kommunarka station with a total length of 26.6 kilometers with 11 stations (ZIL, Krymskaya, Akademicheskaya, Vavilovskaya, Novatorskaya, ” Peoples’ Friendship University”, “General Tyulenev”, “Tyutchevskaya”, “Kornilovskaya”, “Bachurinskaya” and “Kommunarka”). For the second stage (Kommunarka station – Troitsk), design documentation is being developed.

The tunneling of the future line is carried out using traditional technology for the Moscow Metro – with the construction of two single-track tunnels with a diameter of six meters.

Completion of the main work on the construction of the first stage of the Troitskaya line from the ZIL station to Kommunarka is scheduled for 2024.

The maximum traffic intensity can be up to 36 pairs of trains per hour at intervals of up to 1.5 minutes.

In the first years of operation, the trains of the new line will be serviced by the Zamoskvoretskoye electric depot, and then by the Stolbovo depot. The construction of the Troitskoye electric depot is planned to be completed in 2028–2029.

Museum and Exhibition Center “Collection”

Construction of the art museum on the territory of the former ZIL industrial zone began in December 2021. It was carried out using extrabudgetary funds. Investments in the project amount to 7.2 billion rubles.

“In the coming months we will complete the construction of the Collection museum and exhibition center at ZIL. It will become part of an art quarter with recreation areas, a summer terrace, restaurants and cafes. The museum will house permanent and temporary exhibitions of painting, graphics, and sculpture. Up to 1.5 thousand people will be able to visit them at the same time,” wrote the Moscow Mayor.

It is planned to house the “Collection” museum and exhibition center in a modern building with an area of 13.8 thousand square meters in a futuristic style. The main architectural feature of the museum space will be a self-supporting wooden pergola structure. The design of the building uses cassettes made of natural copper and large-format structural glazing.

On the underground floor there will be photo laboratories and rooms for preparing and storing exhibits. On the first floor there is a showroom with ticket offices, a conference room for 85 people and a restaurant. Temporary and permanent exhibitions will be located from the second to fifth floors.

According to Andrey Molchanov, General Director of PJSC LSR Group, a classical music concert hall will also open in the building.

The façade work is now being completed. Specialists carry out interior finishing and installation of elevator equipment. The construction readiness of the facility is 83 percent. It is planned that the Collection museum and exhibition center will receive visitors until the end of 2024. It is expected that it will become one of the vibrant cultural spaces of modern Moscow.
