The meeting of the interdepartmental commission on urban planning activities in historical settlements was chaired by the President of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov. Aide to the President of the Republic of Tatarstan Olesya Baltusova, Minister of Construction, Architecture, Housing and Communal Services of the Republic of Tatarstan Marat Aizatullin, Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin and others took part in the work. The members of the commission approved the implementation of a number of investment projects in the field of housing construction at Admiralteyskaya St., Yakhina St., Moskovskaya St., Narimanov St., Gabdulla Tukay St. and Kurashov St. Rustam Minnikhanov recalled that during the construction of residential complexes, it is necessary to take care of the social infrastructure in advance. “The construction of the residential complex should be accompanied by the development of social facilities: kindergartens, schools,” - he stressed. Rustam Minnikhanov also noted that one of the main requirements for new construction in historical settlements is compliance with the number of storeys. For two projects on Peterburgskaya St. (a multifunctional hotel-type complex and a shopping and hotel complex), the President of the Republic of Tatarstan instructed to carefully study how the objects will affect the traffic situation on Tikhomirnova Street. “This street is already crowded. The implementation of these projects must not be allowed to lead to a collapse on the roads,” - Rustam Minnikhanov noted. Having familiarized themselves with the project of the third stage of the Shamov hospital complex, the members of the commission proposed to finalize the design of the facade so that the external appearance of the building would harmoniously fit into the overall style. The commission approved projects for the improvement of the external appearance of the Kazanka substation building on Podluzhnaya street and the reconstruction of the administrative building of the interdistrict IFTS of Russia No. 20 in the Republic of Tatarstan on October 25th street. Also during the meeting, projects for the construction and reconstruction of residential buildings on the territory of the island-town of Sviyazhsk were presented. All 3 applications were approved. “All objects are very worthy. Today a very correct work is going on in Sviyazhsk. Each new house should become a decoration and not violate the architectural appearance of the island-city”, - noted the President of the Republic of Tatarstan. In conclusion, the members of the commission got acquainted with the construction project of the complex of the cathedral mosque in Laishevo. The architects were recommended to finalize the project, in particular, to change the shape of the roof and dome of the mosque.
