Among the Minsk projects the first place was won by the concept of "Zhuravli" created by JSC "Institute" Minskgrazhdanproekt ". The "Belarusian quarter" will be built in Polustrovo.
Among the projects presented by St. Petersburg for Minsk, the concept of "Studio-17" by Svyatoslav Gaikovich was recognized as the best.
Congratulating the winners, Andrey Shorets thanked all the participants in the contest and expressed his hope that the concepts would be implemented in the shortest time possible.
