Academic — built residential area in the Leninsky and Upper Iset in Yekaterinburg. Currently, it is the largest integrated development projects in Russia.

The main parameters of the project:
The area: 2,500 hectares (about 1,200 hectares — forest park)
Estimated population: 325 thousand.
Area of dwelling: 9015 square meters
The area of non-residential buildings: 4220 sq m
Number of parking spaces: 160 000, including in the underground parking garage — 144000
Educational institutions: 32,500 seats.

The project is unique not only for its size — the largest project in Russia: 13 million sq ft by 325 thousand inhabitants, it is also unique in its planning design, offering people a new quality of life, and aimed at energy saving and environmental protection. Design and construction management provides Renova — Story Group.

Deep forests and rivers gives this urban project a powerful "natural" context: multiple channels cross the urban fabric, and the nearby forests stretch down to the very center of the city thanks to the wide bands of green space.

One of the main principles in the construction of "Academic" — a "democracy." The map does not appear "reservations" for the "poor" and "rich." All the inhabitants of "Academic" will have the same access to advanced social, engineering and road infrastructure area. The "Academic" is primarily focused on the construction of affordable and comfortable housing. Residential development in the district represented by the following classes:
— Economy (51-53%)
— Middle class (30-33%)
— Business Class (11%)
— The elite class (4%)
— Town Houses (1%)

To implement the project adopted the following order of priority development area:
Phase 1 — the northern part of the district to the river Patrushikha 2015 with a residential security not less than 25 square meters. meters per person;
Phase 2 — the southern part of the area after the river Patrushikha 2030 with residential security not less than 30 square meters. meters per person.

Energy supply and environmental protection

Development of the project from "scratch", has avoided the traditional limitations of aging infrastructure and the existing layout.

The peculiarity of the engineering infrastructure of "Academic" — economy. The heating system in the area will be closed in order to avoid inefficient use of water resources, when a huge number of well-trained water pumped, heated, distributed through the pipes, but does not remain in a closed system, and, in fact, is released.

Key areas of energy efficiency:
— The design of buildings so as to reduce their energy needs
— The creation of power grids that are integrated into the urban grid with the latest energy-efficient technologies
— Good thermal insulation thanks to the use of new materials
— The use of natural ventilation to reduce energy consumption for heating and air conditioning
— The organization of production and distribution of energy with high efficiency, allowing to achieve the required level of maintenance of electrical and thermal energy in the most efficient and diligent use of fuel
— A control system allows you to control the temperature in rooms, avoiding excessive heat loss
— A closed transfer system heat

Own centralized production of heat and electricity ensures the stability and the technologies used are based on a systematic approach to all aspects of energy supply, which makes it possible to change production methods and makes it easy to adapt the grid to changes in the market. The concept of the combined production of electricity and heat (cogeneration). Cogeneration efficiency of the method used in the "Academic", up to 90% in winter and 70-80% in the summer.

The transport system

Due to the fact that the area will be built up for the most part housing economy and middle class, the draft preferred public transport. To connect the center of the new district with the existing lines that serve the city, proposed to build a high-speed mode of transport.

Light Rail total length of 7.7 km road will get from the center of "Academic" to the center of Yekaterinburg (area Communards) for 18 minutes. This line is fully implemented on separate business web, at the intersection with other streets and roads will have priority, ie movement is continuous. In addition to conventional light rail tram designed with several urban areas and to the metro line. In the district will go trolley. Transport scheme will complement the private and municipal buses and minibuses.

The design cross sections of streets and roads area designed to meet the width of the carriageway, designed to increase the level of car ownership for a period exceeding current (up to 2025).

— 20 hour formulations
— 5.5 km — the distance run
— 8 stations
— Travel time one way — 18 min
— 3 minutes — the interval between trains during rush hour.

Bus / Trolley
— 3000 passengers in one direction
— 20 buses and 20 trolley buses per hour
— 3 minutes — an interval during rush hour

Chronology and the current situation

Development of the project began in 2005 on the initiative of "Renova Story Group" together with the administration of Ekaterinburg.
The first stone in the construction of the first residential block was laid Oct. 12, 2007.
June 30, 2009 were gosproverku and the first houses were handed over.
December 25, 2009 in Academic was put first in th
e kindergarten.
December 30, 2009 in Academic was launched public transport.

The scale and pace of construction is staggering, but this is better to tell the pictures.
