"On the one hand, this is a network project, but on the other - each such center is very local, it is located in a characteristic place of its district," says Boris Levyant. - The existence of such centers, their necessity is understandable, it is another matter that a large part of the population adheres to the principle of not touching anything and maintaining the status quo. Although, when there is such a competently designed, built and managed community center directly in each district, it not only works to reduce traffic to the center, but, most importantly, gives these areas some kind of awareness. That is, the existence of such a center wh ere people start to communicate forms a certain attitude towards their territory. "
