Moscow’s redevelopment programme

Preparations for implementation of a programme for redevelopment of built-up areas with prefab five-storey apartment blocks or “khrushchevki” - that came to be called after the then Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev who launched the mass housing project in the 1950-60s – is well under way.

These days (from May 15 through June 15) the residents of the apartment blocks are voting to join the redevelopment programme] in accordance with the Decree by the Moscow City Government “On the Procedures for Consulting Public Opinion on the Redevelopment Project in Moscow”. The approval of the Decree was preceded by an expert discussion “How to Organize the Procedures for Consulting Public Opinion on Implementation of the Redevelopment Programme” held on April 24th at a ‘round table’ event hosted by the HSE. Most expert proposals were accepted by the Moscow City Government.
