Specialists of the Agency CENTER have already begun conducting a comprehensive analysis of all systems of vital activity of the town in order to prepare specific scenarios for development of the urban district and proposals for spatial organization of the town and adjacent territories, and development of the transport network, municipal infrastructure, natural recreational framework and public spaces. It is planned that the first stage of work will be completed by mid-autumn. It includes a comprehensive study and assessment of the development potential of the Derbent town urban district and the staging of an open international competition for the elaboration of a master plan for the urban district.
“The top Russian and international companies specializing in integrated development of territories and urban planning, architecture, design, economics and financial modeling will be invited to participate in the competition. A competitive approach is the most effective tool in developing integrated non-standard solutions into a master plan. This approach allows us to obtain a deeper analysis of the task and unique solutions that combine the experience and approaches of different teams. The expert jury and a specially invited international curator will act as a guarantor of quality and compliance with all procedures,” explained Sergei Georgievskii, General Director of Agency for Strategic Development CENTER.
The master plan developed on the basis of research as part of the competition will define the main vectors of the town’s development for eight years to come.
The head of the Agency CENTER said that the study is of a practical nature. It is aimed at elaborating specific scenarios for the development of the urban district, taking into account its resources and areas of economic specialization, including proposals for spatial organization of the town and adjacent territories, and development of the transport network, municipal infrastructure, natural recreational framework and public spaces. It will also include recommended organizational, financial, legal and other institutional mechanisms for implementation of the proposed spatial (territorial) development scenarios, and parameters for assessing their effectiveness.
