In May 2007, Maxwan completed the 6000 ha master plan, dubbed Project A101, after having won an international competition in 2005. This is arguably one of Europe's largest urban projects. Working closely with the client, engineers, landscape architects and a host of local consultants, the masterplan was approved by the regional planning authorities. The project features 116'000 homes of varying size and type, 13 mixed-use centres, a business park (500'000 m2 office floor space), a new university and an entirely new network of roads and public transport. Establishing a high level of social infrastructure, the development will include 2 hospitals, 20 health clinics, 60 schools, and 150 kindergartens. Our first priority was to develop a socially sustainable city where the inhabitants have all the necessary public amenities within an accessible distance.
116'000 dwellings, 1'185'000 m2 commercial, 910.000 m2 Industrial; 530.000 m2 retail, 604.000 m2 social infrastructure, 600 ha leisure park space, 4 tram lines connecting to the Moscow metro system, 1 university, 60 schools, 150 kindergartens, 2 hospitals
