Plans for fells

Head of VEB.RF Igor Shuvalov promised to improve the urban environment of Vladivostok

Plans for fells
Last Thursday, the State Development Corporation VEB.RF signed an agreement with the Primorye Administration, providing that the corporation will financially support the projects implemented in the region in the field of road facilities, housing and communal services, housing, assistance to small and medium businesses.

The chairman of VEB.RF, Igor Shuvalov, who signed the agreement, explained that the development of the urban economy is a primary stage of the agenda.

“We will deal with master plans, reconstruction of old districts, we will try to help, which is possible only in cooperation with the administration of the Primorsky Territory and the mayors of cities, with old emergency houses, the construction of new housing,” he explained.

VEB-Leasing, the Development Fund for the Far East and the Baikal Region, HOUSE, the Russian Export Center, the Small and Medium Business Corporation are planning to attract plans to improve the urban environment. Thus, VEB-Leasing is ready to assist in the renewal of the urban passenger transport park and the construction of heat supply facilities and water treatment systems in the region.

In general, these plans fall within the sphere of interests of the Primorye authorities. According to Acting Governor Oleg Kozhemyako, the region is primarily waiting for the support of already started projects in the housing and utilities sector, as well as in the construction of the Vladivostok ring road and work with the Japanese company Nikken Sekkei, which has developed a master plan for Vladivostok.

To make Vladivostok jointly a modern and comfortable city for life at the Eastern Economic Forum in September 2016 was proposed by Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe to Vladimir Putin in September. A year later, at lll, VEF, AIZK, KB Strelka and the Japanese architectural and engineering company Nikken Sekkei presented his concept.

“The geopolitical position of Vladivostok, located at the crossroads of air and sea routes, a beautiful coastal area, historical and cultural values ​​form a huge potential to make it one of the most developed cities, comfortable for life and attractive for tourists,” the executive director said Nikken Sekkei Fadi Jabri.

Among the "minuses" were uncomfortable living environment, industrial buildings, poorly developed transport network with a high level of automobilization. The last aspect turned out to be dissatisfied with 50% of urban residents surveyed by developers. People complained about public transport, traffic jams, lack of parking lots, “dead” roads. Another 36% of respondents would like to live in a comfortable, clean and comfortable city, 14% offered to pay attention to the environment.

A few months later, in December of 2017, Igor Shuvalov, then the first deputy prime minister of the Russian government, discussed plans with the authorities and designers.

“The historic part of the city requires, of course, modernization, old housing needs to be put in order, to build transport interchanges,” he said, recognizing that infrastructure requires serious investments and suggesting to think about how to manage, for example, with the port and oil depot located in central regions .

Now the work on the project, which, as Shuvalov promised, presented to the citizens at public hearings, is still underway. The idea of ​​bringing large industrial and strategic facilities out of the center and changing the purpose of the territories was continued. Where the oil depot is located, they want to place a new business district, in the historical center of Vladivostok, where there are many museums and monuments, a cultural zone. Separately, the Vladivostok transport system was worked out in the master plan. Japanese experts supported the idea of ​​building a ring road, offered to build intercepting parking lots and select lanes for buses.

“One of the first steps in the implementation of the project of Japanese specialists was the fact that the proposals of the master plan were taken into account when drawing up a new master plan for Vladivostok,” said Peter Novor at the working meeting of master plan developers and city administration representatives at the November meeting of 30. Karpov. - In accordance with the new master plan, the purpose of the tank farm in the area of ​​the First River was changed to a public business zone, which is fully consistent with the tasks of the master plan. Probable options for new sites to which a tank farm could be moved are already being considered. ”

Nevertheless, some issues of territorial planning require coordination, both at the regional and federal levels. Plans such as moving the Vladivostok merchant seaport and tank farm, affect not only the infrastructure of the city, region and the entire Far Eastern region, and this is the level of state macro-planning, which can last long enough, according to the city administration.

VEB.RF, in order to control the process, intends to create a project office in Vladivostok.

“We need responsible people in the administration of Vladivostok who will work with us on a project of a comfortable urban environment and urban economy, and we are ready to deploy a project office here,” said Igor Shuvalov, noting that for constructive work VEB needs to interact with head of the city.
In this, however, a snag - October 11 mayor of Vladivostok resigned and while the city lives without a head.
