I.Metshin about the renovation program: “We finally start works on renovation of the two-story buildings”
In the Privolzhsky district of Kazan, overhaul of two low-rise apartment
buildings is underway: at bldg. 4 and bldg.5 on 62 Avangardnaya Street. The
works started in April, to date, they have already been completed by 60%. Ilsur
Metshin, the Mayor of Kazan, got acquainted with the progress of the work.
“Over the past 10 years, 3,200 apartment buildings were renovated in the
capital of Tatarstan. This is a large amount of housing stock in Kazan, but I
am glad that we finally start works on renovation of the two-story buildings”, -
the Mayor said.
Last year, the new “Avangard” square was landscaped in this residential
area. As a result, a modern public space was opened for local residents with
areas for recreation, sports and various activities, as well as playgrounds. It
was then that the residents of the microdistrict requested a renovation of
these two low-rise buildings on Avangardnaya Street. “They asked us to carry
out renovation. This year we will complete works at the remained two-story
buildings in this district, which were built 50 years ago. People, of course,
have been waiting, so today we can make them happy and say that we will complete
works soon”, - Ilsur Metshin said.
Two-story buildings with two entrances on Avangardnaya Street were built in
1960. Each of them has 16 apartments. Dmitry Anisimov, chair of the Committee
of Housing and Utilities, told Ilsur Metshin that there were no renovation
works before here, only repair was carried out. “We thank residents for doing
what they could on their own, now it's our turn,”- the Mayor said.
The roof and the sewerage system have been almost completely replaced, and
the rest of the work on the utility networks is planned to begin after the end
of the heating season. In addition, the facades of buildings are being
repaired, the entrances will be completely renovated, in particular, the handrails
will be replaced and the stairs will be re-equipped. All work is expected to be
completed in November.
In 2021, it is planned to renovate 295 houses in Kazan (for comparison, 274
houses were included in the program last year). For these purposes, it is
planned to allocate a record amount – more than 2.8 billion rubles.
I.Metshin called on Kazan residents to control the renovation progress in
their homes. “Keep it under control, please contact us. If you have any
suggestions, then the property management companies and contractors will
definitely hear you. And if someone does not want to hear, please report to
Open Kazan and People's Control systems. We will solve these problems together”,
- the Mayor concluded.
