Almost 6.5 million square meters of housing have been built in the capital since the beginning of this year. This is significantly more than planned. Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning Policy Andrey Bochkarev told reporters:

– Despite the pandemic and a number of objective economic factors, the construction industry of the capital does not slow down the pace of work. We have not just completed the housing commissioning plan ahead of schedule this year, but we are also preparing for record figures over the past more than 50 years.

According to the deputy mayor, almost 6.5 million “squares” of residential areas have been commissioned in 11 months: “This is 30% more than the record of 1965, when about 5 million “squares” of residential space were commissioned in Moscow.” Moreover, social infrastructure is also being actively built: since the beginning of the year, 78 schools, kindergartens, health facilities, culture and sports have been introduced in the city.
