ART KVARTAL City Space square will become new active centre of Odesa
There is an opinion among avid tourists: if you want to see the city, visit its main square. After all, life of the urban residents is concentrated precisely here. In the square, people typically appoint meetings, arrange dates, holidays and large-scale events. This is a comfortable location for the popular infrastructure objects, opening of cultural centres and implementation of youth projects.
The square is located in the middle of our neighbourhood - surrounded by the buildings, where some of the premises are designated for business activities. The companies, which will function here, will take a part of the peculiar points of attraction: the residents of Odesa will come here in order to rest, to eat well, to make purchases and to visit a gym. The owners of the apartments will be able to work, while not leaving the territory of the neighbourhood - one of the buildings will be occupied with offices and business co-workings.
In general, the concept of the ART KVARTAL City Space provides for division of the territory into 6 functional zones:• KIDS KVARTAL with the floor space of 3200 m2, where a child development centre and child playing club will work, • FOOD KVARTAL (3300 m²) – space for the groceries, farm market and fast food market, • SPORT KVARTAL (8200 m²) – space for fitness centre, • SHOP KVARTAL (14 300 m²) – separate quarter with hypermarket and stores with different types of the goods, • BIZ KVARTAL – office centre and conceptual co-workings, • REST KVARTAL - premises well-designed in advance for the cafes, restaurants, bars, night club.
However, not only that square is attractive, which abounds with fancy restaurants, stores of prominent brands and popular sports facilities. First of all, attractive square should be associated with a safe and comfortable space, focused on cyclist traffic and walking, where no space for vehicles and solid parking is available. It is easy to reach such square as it has a convenient transport junction or well organized communication with the city due to the developed pedestrian routes.
The ART KVARTAL City Space will not be a closed and separated territory. Zhanna Liaburb public garden will connect the neighbourhood with the city. After the architectural competition the municipal government has chosen the best project of improvement of the locality. It is planned to establish a modern public space with a skate park, modern children’s playground and recreation zone for the parents here. According to the new concept Zhanna Liaburb public garden will be converted into the folk park and become a green corridor which will connect different districts of the city, in particular, Greek park with our neighbourhood.
The ART KVARTAL City Space is located on the site of a former shipyard. A concept of improvement of the neighbourhood and establishment of a modern square will help to solve the main problems of the territory: isolation, lack of establishments of a good quality, bad lightning, low attendance of the territory.
