Moscow: Return of the “Rust Belt”

Developers are pointing out industrial zones as a huge land reserve that can be used to expand the city within its current limits. Acres of abandoned spaces are quickly being transformed for the better: Old factories are replaced with modern residential areas, and whole neighborhoods with elaborate social infrastructure and business centers emerge. Special attention is paid to ecology, and city space is greatly improved by the addition of many boulevards, green embankments, and parks. Depressing territories of former factories such as ZiL (Lichachev’s factory), the Moscow Metallurgical Plant “Serp i Molot,” Trekhgornaya manufaktura, Tushino Airfield, “Grayvoronovo” industrial areas, “Lenino,” “Perovo,” Nataginskyi Zaton, the area around the Belorusskyi railway station, and other previously abandoned places have become comfortable city spaces.
