Well, lots of international teams are working on it, but young Russian urban design architects, as well.

After old metallurgical plant "Serp y molot" (hammer and sickle) died in a new capitalist economy, huge territory full of old industrial buildings has been left in the city East.

Now it is converting through development project in a new residential area, that will be crossed by a new park "GREEN RIVER".

This fall a little part of it has been opened.

The urban renewal program is slowly but surely heading out of the historic center. The post below details renewal around the Kievskiy Rail Terminal, a neighborhood built up in the 50's and 60's and consisting mostly of (in descending order of prettiness): Stalinist apartments, brick commie blocks, meh modern architecture and utilitarian industrial buildings. I've translated the comments attached to the photos and added some of my own in bold.

Bolshaya Dorogomilovskaya Street. Street View



2nd Bryanskiy Pereulok. Street View



The old traffic light is still there, you can see how far away the sidewalk used to be:



Before:





The maccas used to be so much closer to the roadway:



The granite tile looks really cool after the rain, very wet and shiny



Kievskiy Rail Terminal Square. Street View. Don't know what's up with the Paris metro entrance copy.

How fast things change for the better

2018:





Looks like a mirror image at first



More urban renewal before/after shots on my Twitter (Recommend)
A little more from me. The green patches of grass in-between the vast sea of granite tile are placeholders until proper trees are planted in the area closer to November (apparently that's prime time for planting trees). I'm really glad this area is getting a makeover, it features in a lot of skyline shots, and the comments are filled with people ragging on the gross mega-highway that cut through the area. Can't wait for an up-to-date shot of this (telephoto lens to make the skyscrapers look extra massive):

Sorry for the spam but I can't not post this. Fellow SSC member Kirgam climbed up onto the Oko tower observation deck and took a good pic that overlooks the entire area I talked about. Also forgot to mention there will be bus lanes as well, that's why the road is still rather wide

I can honestly say I’ve never seen a more impressive public realm than Moscow’s.
