Housing for People - Development of Cities
Russia's 17 largest agglomerations form 38% of GDP. Over 50% of the country's multi-apartment housing is being built is these agglomerations where concentrations of skilled workers, attracted by high standards of living, are to be found. One of the main challenges to the development of the housing sector is housing stock that doesn't meet the current requirements of the population. Most of the housing stock (over 60%) was built during the Soviet era. According to various estimates, between 2018 and 2024 550–600 million square meters of new housing will be built, half of which will be in cities and agglomerations.
