Moscow has announced a massive plan to reinvigorate areas along the Moscow River, integrate its largely lifeless embankments into the city, and clean it up sufficiently to make it safe for swimming.
The capital’s architectural committee noted that the waterway that bears the capital’s name stretches 83 kilometers through urban Moscow and could be put to better use as a symbolic and transportation artery for the city.
The architectural team that won a contest for the best river redevelopment concept will build some forty river hubs, to include bridges, river ports, cultural attractions, and restaurants.
