The overhaul of a low-rise apartment building on Patrice Lumumba street in the Sovetsky district of Kazan is being comlpleted.
The overhaul a low-rise apartment building at 46 Patrice Lumumba street in the Sovetsky district of Kazan is being completed. The Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin inspected the progress of the work today.
Two-storey three-entrance house on Patrice Lumumba street, located in the heart of the Sovetsky district, was built in 1937 for airport employees.
Today, the house is unrecognizable – during the overhaul, the roof and facade were renovated, utilities were replaced, entrances were repaired, and the power supply system was updated.
Not only the house was transformed, its residents also received a new yard. According to the Our yard republican program, the roadway and sidewalks were repaired, lighting was replaced, and trash enclosures were installed for separate waste collection. At the beginning of November, a playground and a workout area will be installed in the yard, and graffiti will decorate the territory.
“Sites like these are the long – awaited for us, - Ilsur Metshin noted. – It would take 150 years for residents to collect the money that we have spent on the overhaul of the house. Thanks to the government of the republic, which decided to renovate the housing stock, and, of course, to Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov for the yards renovation program”.
One of the reasons why more funds are needed to renovate low-rise buildings is the small number of owners living in such houses.
