Moscow Housing to be Limited to Nine Stories

Moscow region authorities are planning to restrict the height of residential buildings to nine stories, down from the current limit of 17, Vedomosti reported.

Exceptions may be made, said Deputy Head of the Moscow Region government German Yelyanyushkin, but only if the "uniqueness" of the project is verified by the authorities.

The new rules, which will be confirmed in July or August, will not apply to those projects that have already been approved.

The new regulations will reduce the profitability of residential construction by up to 40 percent, Maria Litinetskaya of Metrium Group told Vedomosti.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
