Strelka KB, a leading Russian consulting company in architecture and urban planning, has launched a project for reconstruction of public spaces in one of the central streets of Tashkent, the capital city of Uzbekistan, the press service of the city administration reported on Monday.
“Reconstruction and development activities have begun on the streets of Tashkent on the basis of a comprehensive program entitled “Tashkent Loves You” as well as a project “The Design Code” developed by the Russian company Strelka”, the report said.
According to the administration, on July 29, the first stage of reconstruction of Amir Temur Avenue — one of the central streets of the capital city of Uzbekistan — has been started.
Earlier, Strelka informed that the Amir Temur Avenue would be the pilot area of the project “Tashkent Loves You”. So, sidewalks will be enlarged and bike paths will be marked. At the intersections, public spaces with street retail and rest areas will be arranged. In addition, more than 400 new trees will be planted along the avenue.
The company says that the renovated avenue will become a model for the further transformation of the city. The reconstruction is scheduled for the end of 2018.
