An important component of the reorganization project is attention to the preservation and improvement of nature protection zones and green areas.

Residents of the Khoroshevo-Mnevniki district will have a comfortable urban space for work and leisure. It will be created on the site of the former industrial zone, next to the future Presnya metro station. The planning project for this territory has already been approved, said Juliana Knyazhevskaya, chairman Moskomarchitecture.

The former industrial zone, which is located next to Shenogina street, possession 2, will be reorganized.


At this place, it is planned to build a residential quarter and social infrastructure facilities – a kindergarten for 350 places, a school for 775 places with a stadium, a multifunctional complex, which will house an outpatient clinic and a sports center.

“In Moscow, unused territories are being reorganized, which are actively involved in city life: new modern quarters, art clusters and business centers appear. The concept of the project provides for the creation of all the necessary infrastructure within walking distance for the convenience of residents. On the territory near which the metro station will appear, it is planned to create a public and business zone with an area of ​​347.5 thousand square meters, which will undoubtedly have a favorable effect on the development of the region and create additional jobs for the population, ”said Yuliana Knyazhevskaya.

During the development of the project, much attention was paid to the issues of improvement and preservation of nature protection zones and green areas – the natural-historical park “Moskvoretsky” and natural complexes in the valley of the Khodynka river and along the Karamyshevskaya embankment. Two squares on Svoboda Street, a square at the intersection of Raspletin and Marshal Biryuzov streets will be laid out, and other common areas of 2.26 hectares will also be landscaped.

According to the project of reorganization of the former industrial zone, streets and roads will be reconstructed, as well as new ones will be built – this is a section of the road from the 1st to the 3rd Silikatny passage, streets of local importance, four stopping points of surface urban passenger transport will appear. All this will allow to redistribute the traffic load without creating additional traffic jams.

Active reorganization of industrial zones began in 2010. During this time, houses, social and industrial facilities appeared on their territories. The total building area already exceeds 23 million square meters.
