Urban Design Associates (UDA) recently collaborated with the State Unitary Enterprise “Research and Project Institute of Moscow City Master Plan” (IGP) on the design of the new business center for recently annexed territory southwest of Moscow’s city center. The UDA team includes Nelson Nygaard, John Thompson and Partners, Gillespies, and Group Ark. This new high-density district will include office space, a medical campus, university, hospitality, retail, entertainment, cultural uses, and parks. The district will be connected by metro to Moscow’s historic center. The city has targeted this area for major infrastructure investment to accommodate the rapid growth of Europe’s largest city.
