Moscow – Just Grew a Bunch…

I have an article in the past about how Moscow was going to grow in size. Well it has happened and this looks like just the beginning of her growth phase…

Reclaiming and developing new territories will take dozens of years. Fresh projects listed include building two highways, extending the Moscow metro and constructing over 1,000 houses, as well as new headquarters for the Russian Parliament among other brand-new state buildings…

Looks like according to the news one day, all of the region called Moscow Area will be simply Moscow. Now that is going to be a huge city as far as land mass is concerned…

Windows to Russia


Moscow acquired on Sunday 150,000 hectares of neighboring territories from its southwest borders, following the city’s expansion plan brokered by then-President Dmitry Medvedev in 2011.

According to the plan of the Russian capital’s new structure, Moscow’s land area doubled on July 1 after being enlarged by 150,000 hectares. The so-called “Big Moscow” includes the territory of the two cities in Moscow region, Shcherbinka and Troitsk as well as 19 smaller residential areas.
