Case study: developer tests results of reforms in construction sector
Fashion-retailer Podium Market launched its first development project – the construction of a warehouse complex near the metro station “Salaryevo” in the “New Moscow”. Representatives of the company, together with the publishing house “Kommersant” decided to put into the public domain the process of passing through administrative procedures concerning construction of the facility.
The object belongs to the low-risk category; that allows implementing the project without the mandatory expert examination of project documentation and state construction supervision. Moscow authorities have adopted a number of regulations to facilitate these procedures. In particular, innovations concern approval of project documentation, certificate of approval of architectural and urban object decisions (AGR) and urban development plan of a land plot (GPZU).
According to Podium Market founder Edward Kitsenko, these measures minimize the timing of construction of storage facilities. If earlier it took 2 to 3 years, now it takes only about 12 months. The architects and designers of the company will share their experience in passing through administrative procedures as well as provide practical advice and tips. “Kommersant” intends to monitor the whole process of approval of documentation within the special co-project with Podium Market.
Construction will be conducted on the area of 1.25 thousand sq. meters. Besides the construction of a warehouse it is planned to create a suburban gardening work space with landscaping of the adjacent territory. Mikhail Yakubov, the head of consulting direction of development projects of JLL, said that warehouses are traditionally built as single-storey facilities. The expert estimates the investment in construction of storage facilities (excluding land and communications costs) at 25-30 thousand rubles per 1 sq. m.
