SU-155 Builds in Tskhinvali

Developer SU-155 has finished construction of the Moscow housing complex in Tskhinvali, capital of the breakaway South Ossetia republic.

The  company carried out the construction on behalf of the Moscow city administration under a Moscow government resolution of Aug. 11, 2008, on providing assistance to South Ossetia. Investment in the project totaled 2.5 billion rubles ($88.2 million). The funds came from the city budget.

In Tskhinvali, which has been severely affected by military conflict between Russia and Georgia, 210 cottage-type houses and four three-story, multiple-entrance buildings were built in a 60-hectare area. The total area of housing construction is 60,000 square meters.

Also built nearby were a school accommodating 600 students, two kindergartens for 110 children each and a shopping center. A fitness center was rebuilt.

More than 3,000 people are expected to live in the Moscow complex.
