Pioneer Group is actively developing international relations in the field of construction and development.
Since 2013, the company has been collaborating with leading Japanese urbanists, architects and engineers on the development of the urban environment, exchanging experience in implementing projects of residential and commercial real estate. Thus the famous architectural studio Nikken Sekkei was involved in designing a large transport interchange hub “Botanichesky Sad” (“Botanical Garden”), and a delegation of Pioneer Group made a working visit to Japan on 8-12 June 2014.
We would like to remind you that the Russian-Japanese cooperation is developing successfully at the level of the two countries’ governments. Since 1994, the Russian-Japanese intergovernmental committee on trade and economic issues has been carrying out its work. One of the key directions of its development is the popularization of the most significant Russian development projects at the international level.
As part of the Committee’s work the Moscow office of Pioneer Group was visited by the Japanese government delegation, headed by the First Secretary of the Embassy of Japan in the Russian Federation Masao Utsumi. The delegation included officials from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan.
Marketing director of Pioneer Group Yuri Kogan spoke about the investment potential of Moscow real estate market and, together with the project manager Sergei Gayfulin, gave a presentation of the “Botanichesky Sad” (“Botanical Garden”) transport interchange hub (TIH).
Following the meeting, the parties agreed on the inclusion of the “Botanichesky Sad” (“Botanical Garden”) transport interchange hub in the list of projects of Russian-Japanese cooperation, supervised by the Intergovernmental Committee. This agreement means the active support of the project implemented in the concept of transport-oriented development, at the administrative level. Another Russian project included in the list will be Krasnoyarsk-City.
Moreover, officials of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan presented to Pioneer a list of 100 industry organizations – developers, urban planning centers, city administrations interested in cooperation with Moscow and Russia as a whole.
“The development of Russian-Japanese partnership in the field of construction technology and innovation will have a positive impact on the quality of development projects. We are glad that our cooperation is going into action, “- said CEO of Pioneer Group Andrei Grudin.
The concept of transport-oriented development (TOD) involves the design and construction of multifunctional and residential real estate, together with transport infrastructure (TIH), so the residents are provided with the most comfortable access to public transportation.
This concept was chosen as a priority in the development of Moscow city. A transport interchange hub is a complex at the intersection of routes of two or more modes of transportation: metro, trains, buses, trams, private vehicles. TIH projects provide a comfortable transfer between different modes. By 2020, a network of 255 transport interchange hubs will be created in Moscow and the Moscow region, which will link all the modes of transportation in a single system.
