$192Bln Investment Planned for New Moscow

City Hall wants to sink 7 trillion rubles ($192 billion) into developing New Moscow by 2035, the extensive region to Moscow's southwest that was added to the capital's territory in 2012.

But the bulk of investment is to come from the private sector. City Hall will allocate a maximum of 8.3 percent of the capital's budget for the new territory, or 580 billion rubles, Vedomosti reported.

City Hall's development plan envisions building 100 million square meters of real estate, in which 45 million square meters will commercially zoned. The city also plans to build 600 kilometers of new roads, some of which will be toll roads.

1.5 million people will live in the territory, and 1 million jobs will be located there, according to Moscow's planning department.

… 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.
