KIEV | Projects & Construction

Since my last thread has disappeared due to some forum malfunctions, I'm making a new one.


Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, has been undergoing a development boom for a decade now but it's still a long way before catching up to its potential due to many years of a secondary role while under foreign rule. Today it's one of the largest cities in Europe and since recently has entered the skyscraper race.

It is also a EURO 2012 finals host city.

SKY TOWERS
47 fl | 34 fl | 210 meters


Sky Towers are planned as a premium commercial development located on a 0.74 hectare site along Peremogy Avenue in Kyiv. The site is in a densely populated area, close to the city centre and Kyiv’s main railway station.The project is designed to have three buildings, ranging from six to 47 storeys, with a gross area of approximately 215,400 square metres and approximately 170,300 square metres of useable space. This includes approximately 46,300 square metres of income-producing parking space and approximately 7,100 square metres of retail space. The site is also planned to contain a fitness centre, a conference hall and approximately 935 underground parking lots.

Groundworks started in the fourth quarter of 2007 and construction is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2010.

The concept design was developed by DLN, Maunsell Aecom, R.A. Heintges & Associates, ACLA, C&A, MVA Hong Kong.







Construction site. It's just the beginning.

SUBWAY NETWORK EXPANSION
Kyiv has the most extensive subway network in Ukraine and one of the most extensive ones in all of Europe. It is in constant process of expansion which is now being accelerated due to heavy traffic congestion.

According to an approved plan by 2020 it will have 141,4 kilometers of railways, a total of 109 stations, 10 of which will enable you to change lines. Purple represents under construction sections of the subway network.


Next year alone a total of 7 stations are planned for opening.

ESPLANADE

35 floors office skyscraper/highrise is being built next to the recently completed class A skyscraper "PARUS" creating a unique office highrise area in Ukraine.











Note: there are many other towers of around this height that are planned or constructed in Kyiv, but they are residential, while this tower is an office one.

PODIL BRIDGE

This is a massive project whose cost is now in billions of dollars. It's an enormous six auto lane and two subway lanes bridge stretching for over 7 kilometers.










Part of it where it connects with Podil (a historic district)


It will also connect "mainland" Kyiv with the Rybalski Peninsula where the future business district will be located

VESNA NA ZARICHNIY

42 floorers (some towers will be shorter though)

Residential complex of about a dozen residential skyscrapers on the waterfront of the Dnipro river in Kyiv. We have had residential buildings of this height already but never in such an elegant, modern complex and a beautiful location.

Back to the buildings ...again.
Personally , I think impressive designs are all very good , but I think its better for city to focus on achievable , quality buildings first.I dont see the point of impressive skyscraper district plans ( like Rybalski Peninsula), before theyre immently achievable.The stadium is certainly a step in the right direction
