The project of the CSKA football stadium ("Moskomproekt-4", Bokov AV, Bush DV), presented to the council, combines two functions - sports and commercial. Access to the stadium through Khodynka, from the rear, and from the Polezhaevskaya metro station. From all sides, especially from the south, the stadium is surrounded by a specially protected area of a birch grove. The project proposes a small cutting of the grove with subsequent compensation. The new stadium has a capacity of 30,000 seats, with a parking lot for 1,300 spaces. The project also included hotel towers and offices. Yu.M. Luzhkov supported the project of the stadium in terms of capacity, but with the conditions: the simultaneous withdrawal of underground fuel storage facilities and the use of the vacated runway to increase the parking lot, for which he proposed to develop a separate solution. He also rejected the investment component of the complex, which "does not correspond to the concepts of a modern sports complex." The mayor called the architectural solution “absurd and primitive”, he suggested smoothing the vertical forms.
The second project, the Spartak stadium, is supposed to be located on the vacant territory of the former Tushino airfield, which can easily provide the complex with the required number of parking spaces. The entrance to the stadium is now overloaded, but the Strogino metro station will soon be built and by 2009 the Mitino station. Two versions of the stadium were proposed - a 2-year-old project by the same architects as CSKA with two large domes, and a new, "undulating" one. Both projects unite two stadiums: an indoor arena and an open stadium for 30 thousand spectators. At the same time, there are two options for combining stadiums, at right angles and in parallel, but in both cases there are problems with evacuation and, according to A. Kuzmin, most likely the stadiums will have to be moved a little. Representatives of the Spartak club who were present expressed a wish in favor of the first, long-standing, project. Among the speeches there were concerns about the reliability of the structure and its lightness. After listening to the opinions, the mayor decided to reconsider the compliance with the norms once again and urged everyone to move away from the emerging trend of overloading structures. The architects were asked to make the parking lot for at least 10 thousand places, plus revive the project of the metro station, which was developed for this place long ago.
After the sports theme was changed to a church one, and a project was proposed for the creation of the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary ("Moskomproekt-2", architect Obolensky AN) on the territory of the Conception Convent. The history of this place is such that there were several cathedrals on it, starting with the wooden one and ending with the construction of Kazakov, which was demolished in 1917. Now the monastery wanted to revive the cathedral, but not to recreate the Cossack cathedral, made in pseudo-Gothic, but to build a new one, in the likeness of churches of the 16-17 centuries, with five onion domes, and slightly higher than its Cossack predecessor. This decision caused many conflicting points of view, starting with the fact that such a towering building is generally a sign of pride and by law only the regeneration of the monument is possible here, and not the erection of a high-rise church with an eye on ancient times, to the thesis that “since all of Moscow is growing upward, then the churches must also grow. " The question arose why it is impossible to recreate the former temple? It turned out that, in general, it is possible: there are ancient foundations that can be closed, or left inside the cathedral, but the point is, as Vladyka spoke at the meeting, that the monastery needs more space to receive parishioners.Luzhkov confirmed the new project of the temple, which was also approved by the Patriarch, but reduced its height with a small reservation.
The next subject of discussion was the Luzhnetskaya embankment reconstruction project, where it is planned to build a multifunctional complex with offices, hotels, apartments and retail space with a total area of 450 thousand sq. M.
On the part of the public, dissatisfaction was caused by the construction of offices, for which, in the words of Aleksey Klimenko, “it's time to show the red light in the city center” and the system of transport routes, which is not developing in the project, for a long time. But most of all, Yuri Luzhkov himself was outraged, saying that "the chief architect allowed the impossible construction volumes on such a small patch of land, which, moreover, according to the General Plan goes like a public zone," and called these actions "the pursuit of profit." The main and so far the only solution to this issue was to limit the construction of anything.
The last project considered was a hotel on Nikitsky Boulevard, 6/20, architect M.V. Posokhin, rejected at the previous council due to the high number of storeys. Instead of 9 floors, now they have presented a 7-story building, facing the corner to the Arbat, executed in the manner of eclecticism. The public spoke in favor of even lower number of storeys and the regeneration of the "Nightingale House" that once stood here. Luzhkov's decision was encouraging - "we already have one disgrace on the Arbat - a banking house, this should not be allowed." Therefore, the 5th floor became the top mark of the house. The mayor did not object to the architectural solution.
