Detailed Master Plan of Baku Centre to be approved before end of January
Baku, Fineko/abc.az. The State Committee for Construction & Architecture of Azerbaijan is finalizing making of a detailed Master Plan of Baku Centre Development.
Committee’s deputy chairman Dovlethan Dovlethanov says that before the end of January the Baku Centre Plan will be endorsed by the State Committee and submitted to the Baku City Executive Power for execution.
The Plan covers an area of approximately 1,550 hectares - from the shopping center Amay to the State Flag Square on horizontal, and vertically - from Baku Boulevard (Seaside Park) to Bakikhanov Street. The remainder of the capital is not subject to detailed planning, as the Greater Baku Regional Development Plan is under preparation.
Earlier the head of the International Relations & Information Department of the State Urban Planning & Architecture Committee of Azerbaijan, Jahangir Hojayev, informed that master plans on separate zones will be prepared on the basis of the Greater Baku Regional Development Plan having conceptual character.
"Besides zoning territories there will be drafts of detailed planning to define the sites to be built. The Master Plan of Baku Centre Development covering 1,550 hectares aims to preserve the formed historical ensemble and architectural environment of the central part of Baku. Precisely for this reason it was worked out prior to the Greater Baku Regional Development Plan on the basis of outdated General Development Plan of Baku of 1984," Hojayev said.
At that, he supposes that building and renovation in Baku should not be carried out at the state expense.
"It is necessary to attract private investors and developers to such kind of projects on the basis of established plans," he added.
