The project for planning the territory of Bogorodskoye microdistricts 15b–16b became the winner of the prestigious annual international award UDAD (Urban Design & Architecture Design) Awards in the category of Urban Planning Concept. This was announced by Andrey Bochkarev, the Deputy Moscow Mayor for Urban Planning Policy and Construction.

“The renovation project in the Bogorodskoye District of Moscow has received the prestigious international UDAD Awards. Such a high assessment from the professional community indicates that the principles laid down in the Moscow housing renovation program fully meet the international standards of sustainable development and the formation of a comfortable environment,” Andrey Bochkarev said.

According to him, the area of the projected territory is 41.62 hectares, and the proposed landscape-planning pattern has been formed taking into account the historical framework of the village that was located there earlier. In the project, the visibility zones of the Church of the Transfiguration in Bogorodskoye were also taken into account.

The residential environment in microdistricts 15b–16b will be organized according to the quarterly principle, the space will be divided into courtyard and public one, and the concept of courtyards without cars will be implemented. In addition, a modern kindergarten, a school and a sports and health center with a swimming pool will be built in the district.

As the chief architect of Moscow Sergey Kuznetsov noted, the capital's renovation program not only improves the living conditions of Muscovites, but also makes the city more convenient for living and working. “I am very glad that the capital of Russia was able to stamp itself at one of the most prestigious international contests, and our colleagues could fall into line with internationally recognized architects. This win once again showed that we are moving in the right direction,” he concluded.

Design solution

The project of microdistricts 15b-16b territory planning was developed by experts of GAU NI and PI Gradplan of the City of Moscow (State Autonomous Institution of Moscow Research and Design Institute of Urban Planning of the City of Moscow) on behalf of Moskomarchitektura (Moscow City Architecture Committee).

“We are proud that the jury of the UDAD International Award highly appreciated our approach to the planning of the territory,” Dina Sattarova, Director of the GAU NI and PI Gradplan of the City of Moscow said. “The Institute’s specialists have proposed a design solution that will create a modern, rich, comfortable and balanced urban environment in the renovation districts.”

As part of the project, the area will be landscaped and improved, there will be new pedestrian and bicycle paths. Bike routes will pass along 1st Myasnikovskaya and Millionnaya Streets with access to Krasnobogatyrskaya Street, as well as along Kuznetsovskaya, 3rd Grazhdanskaya, Igralnaya and new streets being projected.

There are also plans to make public transport more accessible to residents — new bus routes and stops will appear in the microdistricts, and reconstruction of the existing tramway is planned.
