The path of renovation of the microdistrict is the transformation of abandoned territories into places of social activity. In the place of vacant lots, pedestrian boulevards with social infrastructure facilities and workplaces on the ground floors are being organized. The upper floors house rental housing for young professionals in the creative industries. This type of housing is in great demand among the residents of Technopark "Idea" and "IT Park" located within a walking distance (500 m) to the projected area.

Urban planning tasks that were formed and solved by the project team:
1. Saving undeveloped  the shores of Lake Nizhny Kaban, 
incl. removal of infrastructure facilities from the embankment area (60-100 m)
2. Preservation and creation of the identity of the historical center of Kazan - the size of a block and parcels
3. Priority of a comfortable pedestrian network, reorganization of transport
4. Formation of an active front of a new street - T.Minnulin highway
5. Formation of a new architectural appearance of the embankment of Lake Nizhny Kaban
