Planning projects for two cycling and pedestrian bridges and the Moskva River embankment in the Mnyovnikovskaya floodplain have been approved. There will also be a music academy, a sports and educational facility, a residential complex with an underground car park and a secondary substation.

Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies is the operator of several major urban development projects in the capital, including the Mnyovnikovskaya floodplain territory.

“The construction of two BCL metro stations, Terekhovo and Mnyovniki, and the implementation of the integrated development model gave a strong impetus to the development of the Mnyovnikovskaya floodplain territory, which was changing in a quite noticeable way”, said Yuliana Knyazhevskaya, Chairperson of the Moscow Committee for Architecture and Urban Planning.

According to Yuliana Knyazhevskaya, the new infrastructure facilities will connect the three districts at once and increase the comfort of their residents. For example, the bridges will be linked by a continuous bicycle and pedestrian path, which will make it possible to organise the public spaces of the Krylatskoye, Khoroshyovo-Mnyovniki and Filevsky Park districts into a single park cluster.

“The implementation of the project will enable to preserve natural uniqueness and cultural identity of these places, ensure the integrity of the space structure, and organise new pedestrian routes”, specified Sergey Kuznetsov, Chief Architect of Moscow.

He specified that the Mnyovnikovskaya floodplain would be linked to Fili Park, the Rowing Canal and other points of attraction.

The Mnyovnikovskaya floodplain covers an area of 352 hectares. The site planning envisages the creation of residential and business development, facilities of social infrastructure and park areas, both at the expense of the city budget and by private investors. The development of this major urban planning project in the capital will create around 30 thousand jobs.

The Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies acts as an operator for a number of major urban planning projects in Moscow, such as the Mnyovnikovskaya floodplain, the vacated territory of M.V. Khrunichev Space Center, as well as the Kommunarka ABC in New Moscow. The total area of the facilities scheduled for construction exceeds 12 million square metres.
