Apartment distribution recommendations:


The main objective of this project is to create a “comfort-class” residential building that will provide a modern and comfortable living environment. The comprehensive nature of the project proposal gives it a competitive edge by meeting potential consumers’ expectations to the fullest possible extent with regard to the area’s developed infrastructure and transportation accessibility.

Designers must meet the following objectives:

  • Develop the project with a certain level of class and convenience in mind
  • Create a high standard of comfort by ensuring the space is a pleasant, unified living space for residents
  • Execute the project using state-of-the-art methods
  • Employ functional solutions and quality workmanship
  • Use modern construction and finishing practices
  • Create a unified architectural style and effective planning solutions
  • Design attractive landscaping for public areas


Restrictions on land use and infrastructure projects are subject to laws and regulations of Ukraine.


  • Utility clearance zones for existing water mains, projected electrical networks, heating mains, force main sewers and gravity sewers must be considered when preparing documentation
  • Maximum building height is 47,700 m.
  • Make provisions for resident parking (on the underground level) and aboveground visitor parking (near the building)
  • Allow for potential arrival and temporary unloading of vehicles near the building entryways
  • Provide a barrier-free environment, as the entire territory should be accessible to persons with limited mobility


Architectural and space-planning solution requirements


  • Parking height is 2.20 m​​
  • Height of the lower floors of commercial buildings must be no less than 2.70-3.3 m. Floor height for residential buildings must be no less than 3 m.
  •  Building entry spaces must have a “welcome zone” that creates a first impression of the building. It should have personality (unlike in other buildings) and be comfortable, safe, well-lit and easy to navigate.  
  • An area must be provided for a concierge desk, mailboxes, public information area and a visible elevator lobby.
  • Corridors must have a contemporary design and all apartment doors should be uniform.
  • To provide excellent apartment viewing features, it is recommended to limit the number of windows looking “into windows”, blank façade walls, over the parking entrance, and above or next to loading/unloading areas for commercial premises.
  • Heating for commercial premises should be supplied via wall-mounted convectors and via floor heating in apartments.
  • Plastic façade elements in complex structural elements, supports, cantilevers, and other elements that increase costs should be used decoratively and minimally.
  • Developers are encouraged to use a variety of contemporary materials for façade materials. Use of more expensive façade materials should be used minimally for decorative elements and should be agreed upon with the client.
  • Façades should include a protective decorative panel for the outdoor air conditioning unit.
