MLA+ and MR-Group’s ‘Seliger City’ project starts on site
The residential neighbourhood ‘Seliger City’ has started construction. The project was designed by MLA+ for Moscow based developer MR-Group. Once completed, it will become a new middle class housing neighbourhood in the North-west of Moscow right adjacent to a new metro station.
The design aims at combining very high densities with the goal to create a human scale environment. Arranged around a large public courtyard, the project consists of highrise and low rise buildings that form a new neighbourhood in the middle of the city while providing ample outdoor and community facilities. An H-shaped highrise complex forms the monumental gate to the complex and will be highly visible from the busy roads passing the site.
Official construction start was celebrated in a foundation ceremony that took place last week Friday. Construction of the first phase is expected to take 1.5 years.
