The Role of Public Places in Large-Scale Projects for Developing Territories in the City Center: World Experience Analysis

Within the frameworks of research, a search and selection was conducted regarding world practical experience with multifunctional projects, compatible with the technical economic parameters determined by the “European Embankment” project. As a result, 8 most interesting cases, analogous with the client’s project, were selected. Further analysis of these cases was then conducted in order to study presence of a unified concept of projects developing communal spaces during the project’s realization, including those created within the project’s framework or adjoined to an openly accessible territory (streets, squares, embankments, courtyards and other spaces). In addition, a typology of communal spaces and criteria for evaluating the influence of communal spaces on financial and image effectiveness of multifunctional development projects.
