Thirteen construction and reconstruction projects in the historical center have been discussed at the Executive Committee of Kazan
The meeting of the working group of the Interdepartmental Commission on
Urban Development in historical settlements took place at the Executive
Committee of Kazan. Thirteen construction and reconstruction projects were
presented, twelve of which will be submitted to the Rais (Head) of the republic
of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov. One project has been sent for revision. The
meeting was held by the Mayor of the capital of Tatarstan Ilsur Metshin.
“The activity among potential investors in the reconstruction of
facilities is very high,”- the head of the city noted. In his opinion, this
indicates the level of investment attractiveness of Kazan. “The geography of
market participants is increasing, companies from Moscow and St. Petersburg are
willing to participate in housing construction in the capital of Tatarstan and
the Kazan agglomeration. This is good, but at the same time it makes us
responsible for the projects we approve. The architectural appearance of the
city for the next decade or even a century depends on the decisions we have
made,”- Ilsur Metshin noted.

of Tatarstan, Azat Nigmatzyanov, First Deputy Head of the Executive Committee
