“Metropolia” in the south-east of Moscow: a residential area of ​​towers – “megapolises”


The business class complex includes more than 20 skyscrapers named after the capitals of states and important cities

This year MR Group will complete the construction of the first stage of the Metropoliya complex located in the south-east of Moscow. Why did the project get this name? In ancient times, polis (city-states) with colonies in foreign lands were called metropolises. Later, this was the name of the homeland or the central territory of the colonial empires, the most civilized, urbanized and protected place, the focus of political life. Today these are the capitals of states or centers with a global influence on world life.

The business class complex brought together 22 “metropolises” at once: skyscrapers named after large cities. You can “settle” in Athens, the city-state in Attica, which played a leading role in the history of Ancient Greece; in Rome, the capital of Italy, the metropolis of the Roman Empire; in London, the capital of Great Britain, the metropolis of the British Empire. The cities of Russia are not forgotten: St. Petersburg and Moscow. Or you can choose the Hong Kong Tower, named after one of the leading financial centers in Asia and the world.

Location: within the TTK and about three metro stations

Towers are being built at the intersection of Volgogradsky Prospekt with the Third Transport Ring. It is almost on the border with the Central Administrative District: in just 10 minutes you can get to the Garden Ring, to the Kremlin in 25 minutes. Opposite the block, on the other side of the Third Transport Ring, the Ugreshskaya MCC station operates. A little further, closer to Novoostapovskaya Street, is the Volgogradskiy Prospekt metro station. Also within walking distance is another metro station, “Dubrovka”, near which there is a shopping center of the same name.

Architecture: brick expressionism

The architecture of the quarter was developed by the SPICH bureau. The style of brick expressionism was chosen for the facades. The harsh details of German clinker tiles express the dynamism and swiftness of metropolitan areas. The first stage includes seven 30-storey high-rises, which will be commissioned this year. The second has 12 towers 29-30 stories high plus 8-story low-rise sections. Installation of facades with clinker tiles is being completed in four houses, they will be completed in the first quarter of 2023, eight more – in the first quarter of 2024. Phase 3 preliminarily includes three 30-storey towers.

Infrastructure: shops, school and kindergartens

An English kindergarten will open on the first floors of the Berlin and Paris buildings, and the kindergarten will also be located in second-stage buildings. The project also includes a school. The underground part of the complex will have a two-level parking lot for 2.3 thousand cars (in two lines). It will install charging stations for electric vehicles and equip storerooms. They will also create systems for pumping and washing wheels, and place grocery carts. The parking lot will be accessed by reading the numbers.

Improvement: living in nature

The concept of improvement was created by the creative association “Morning”. Courtyards – no car passage. The first stage has a central square with landscaping, summer café verandas and a Christmas tree in winter. Outside, the area is bounded by a hill, the inclined plane of which is intended for relaxation and meetings. Two workout zones with Kompan and Kenguru exercise machines have been made, as well as three playgrounds with Kompan equipment: one for a kindergarten and two for children of different ages. Figures of the artist Masha Somik are placed on the sites.

In the second stage, the buildings will be surrounded by a promenade park, which includes a basketball court and a ping-pong area. The theme of landscaping was life in nature. Columnar poplars are planted along the border of the site, and birch groves with flower beds are on the lower level. The paving continues the brick expressionism of the houses. Wi-Fi is available throughout the territory. A security console and a video surveillance system are provided. You can enter the entrance using biometric readers.
