Kazan IT Park
Nestled between the south-eastern coast of the Volga River and big swathes of forest, the suggested site for this IT park is 35km south of central Kazan, the capital of Tartastan. It was important to make it self-sufficient as traveling in winter is inconvenient due to ice and heavy snowfall. The proposed master plan accommodates approximately 18,000 people – a relatively low density thanks to the vastness of Russia’s lands – with facilities such as incubators, educational institutions, commercial services, and logistics. There are also proposals for roads linking the railway station and airport.
