The mayor also answered the question of whether the downloading of the construction sector one of the goals of the renovation. “I don’t care how loaded is the construction sector. It’s a niche market, and if there is demand for its products — it is growing, there is no demand is not growing. Artificially something there, we will not do,” said the mayor.
“We built eight or nine million square meters of real estate, and build. Nothing tragic happens, there is no need for someone to load there. Renovation is a purely social project, a response to the demands of the citizens who live in dilapidated or derelict housing,” — said Sobyanin.
