Over 5,000 low-rise housing blocks enrolled in Moscow’s renovation program
Slightly more than 5,000 Soviet-era low-rise apartment blocks in Moscow have been incorporated into the so-called housing renovation program, Moscow’s Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said at a city government meeting.
"A total of 5,144 dwelling houses have been included in the renovation program. The list is available at the Moscow mayor’s official website www.mos.ru," TASS cited Sobyann as saying.
The capital’s housing renovation program was unveiled in early 2017 when President Vladimir Putin instructed Sobyanin to demolish Soviet-era five-story apartment blocks to make way for new apartment buildings. Plans are underway to clear some 25 million square meters of dwellings under the 10-to 15-year program.
