Improvement of public spaces
About the project
The goal of the public space improvement program is to create a comfortable environment in Russian cities - so that it is clean, beautiful and comfortable in the city centre and sleeping areas.
The transformation of squares, parks, embankments, central streets will improve the transport situation in cities, increase safety, and contribute to the development of the service sector - street trading, catering, tourism, new businesses. In such cities, one wants to live, work, study and rest. They will become places of attraction for young professionals who create the future of the country.
Future cities map
Since 2016, the Ministry of Construction, DOM.RF and Strelka KB have been implementing the priority project “Formation of a Comfortable Urban Environment” - the renewal of public spaces in 47 cities of Russia. The renewed territories will become an example of transformations in other cities.
Why develop cities?
Many Russian cities developed according to Soviet standards, which prioritized production rather than people. In a modern post-industrial society, the basis of the economy has become not production, but people - human capital.
A person who is not tied to a plant or a factory chooses where to live. According to sociologists, in 2001-2010, almost 2 million Russians moved to Moscow from the regions - much more than to other Russian cities. Residents of the areas travel to the capital of Europe for cultural experience and quality of life. They choose a safe, comfortable and varied environment. Therefore, public spaces are becoming the main "currency" of cities in the struggle for promising specialists.
The economy of the 21st century is an economy of knowledge, services and technology, which is impossible without a city dweller. And public spaces provide communication and exchange between residents and affect the quality of the urban environment.
