Improvement of Legal and Institutional Approaches to the Reorganization of Industrial Zones in Moscow
In the last 5 years, the conception of polycentric development has become one of the most appropriate solution for disposing of spatial disproportions in Moscow. The conception of polycentric development intends a search for territories, which are being used ineffectively, and development intensification to form subcenters which could compete with Moscow downtown. Within this framework, industrial areas, which occupy 17% of Moscow (excluding Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Administrative Districts) have strong potential. Moscow government pursues a positive policy however this process is being reined by a lot of problems, and the problem of a great number of owners is among them. Federal law №373-FZ made a number of amendments to the Town-Planning Code of the Russian Federation and the Land Code of the Russian Federation, which should help involve owners in the reorganization process. The Author of this paper analyze these proposals and emphasize possible directions for future improvements.
