Moscow Industrial special project started

Moscow Industrial is an educational special project about the historical industrial heritage of Moscow.

It was prepared by the Complex of Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations of the Government of Moscow within the framework of the Moscow program for the integrated development of former industrial zones “Industrial Quarters” in cooperation with the International Urban Laboratory CENTER Lab.

Moscow industrial zones are the most important reserve for the development of the city. As part of the implementation, more than 150 territories for integrated development have been identified.

As part of the special project and the Moscow Urban Forum-2022, group excursions will take place. Historians will guide the participants along routes that intertwine the past and present of industrial areas.

The project locations include eight industrial zones. These are the territories of future integrated development, a new quality of life and activity:

  • GES-2,
  • The Rassvet cluster (former factory Muir & Merrilies),
  • The Golutvin Manufactory,
  • Manufactory of Emil Zindel,
  • Danilovskaya manufactory,
  • Stanislavsky’s factories,
  • Shabolovsky cluster,
  • The Crystal factory.

The modern city carefully preserves the traces of the history of industrial Moscow, doing a great job of preserving and adapting the industrial heritage to modern realities. The noise of technological processes, streets and the construction of new infrastructure allows you to get in touch with the recent past of these symbols of industrial Moscow. You can listen to their music here.
