Two administrative districts - Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Administrative Districts - were created in the new territories. They include 19 settlements and two urban districts - Troitsk and Shcherbinka.

“New Moscow is extensively growing: eight metro stations have been built, about 13 more stations are in design and construction, 280 kilometers of roads have been laid which is a huge amount of road construction. More than 100 social and cultural facilities have been built: outpatient clinics, hospitals, schools, kindergartens, etc. And, naturally, new jobs are very important. The population of New Moscow has more than doubled, adding 300 thou residents. At the same time, 180 thou of jobs were created. Those jobs are different, with various conditions, but on the whole this is a large number which allows people to choose where they can work” - Sergei Sobyanin noted during his visit to the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Administrative Districts.

General Development plan of Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Administrative Districts

In March 2017, the Moscow City Duma adopted a law on amending the general plan of the city of Moscow with regard to the development of new territories. It was completed with the following basic principles:

- holistic development. Creation of areas for living, studying, work, and recreation. Infrastructure facilities must be accessible within walking distance;

- polycentrism. Creation of new points of growth, centers of production, business, and social activities. This will take down the shuttle migration of the population and evenly spread the social, public, transport, and economic burdens on the city territories;

- outstripping development of infrastructure. Housing is being built simultaneously with or after the required transport communications and utilities, as well as community facilities are arranged;

- environmental friendliness. The recreational role of natural areas is preserved, and their ecological potential is carefully and effectively used in the interests of the residents and for the sake of preservation of biological diversity.

According to the general plan, by 2035 the population of the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Administrative Districts will strike the figure of 1.6 mln. The number of jobs is expected to reach 1.1 mln.

In development of new territories, much attention is paid to social infrastructure, natural areas, and the restoration of cultural heritage sites.

Housing development of the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Administrative Districts will be based on new principles of creating comfortable urban environment, such as:

- perimeter block housing principle, separation of internal and public space (courtyard and street), formation of an organized urban structure;

- human-scaled urban environment and a variety of architectural solutions;

- compactness, focus on walking accessibility of social infrastructure facilities, retail outlets, places of resort and employment, and predominant use of public transport;

- multifunctionality of buildings; shops, and other services providing facilities are located on the ground floors of the houses;

- sustainable building;

- conservation and improvement of natural areas.

By 2035, nearly 100 cultural and leisure facilities, about 320 kindergartens, 170 schools, and 125 polyclinics altogether are scheduled for construction in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Administrative Districts. A hospital in Kommunarka with a perinatal center is planned to be completed by that time.

The general plan takes into account the boundaries of specially protected natural areas and green conservation areas. The document defines water protection zones, coastal, protective and coastal belts, boundaries of flooding and underflooding zones. All this will make it possible to preserve the landscape and biological diversity of the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Administrative Districts.

There are 372 cultural heritage sites in the new territories, including the manor houses of Ostafyevo, Valuevo, Voronovo, Filimonki, Krasnoye, Staro-Nikolskoye, Izmalkovo, Guseva Polosa, and Krekshino. The general plan provides for their protection, recreation and restoration. Besides, these territories provide for arranging historical, cultural, and tourist and recreational centers which will foster international and domestic tourism.
