Housing renovation projects. The politics of urban renewal

In 2017, the Moscow authorities launched a renovation programme — redeveloping the old housing stock with a new one that meets modern standards. A year later, the city authorities started a full-scale implementation of the project - 2018 saw the launch of construction of 61 houses. The launch of the programme raised practical questions for the city administration - how to determine the number of storeys of the new houses, how to carry out the resettlement of residents, how to provide new neighborhoods with social infrastructure and green areas. During the session, the Moscow authorities will present the first results of the renovation programme and discuss how to coordinate the launch and delivery of similar mega-projects in the housing sector with experts.

  • At what stage of implementation is the Moscow programme of renovation? What challenges and tasks do the city authorities face?
  • How is the balance between quality, the scale of development, economy and regulatory side of the project achieved?
  • How does the programme consider the international experience in housing renovation?
