New residential neighborhoods will be created, multi-apartment buildings will be designed, which will contribute to the economic development of the city through innovative research and companies. The "Barabashova" market will remain in place, in a modernized and compact version. The presence and connection with universities is very important, as well as the design of green public spaces and buildings to promote the human neighborhood of the future.
