Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. On March 12, the Council of the capital city Governor convened to discuss amendments to the regulation on re-planning and construction development of Ger district areas in Ulaanbaatar city. The regulation, which was approved in 2018 by Minister of Construction and Urban Development, allows 35 companies to carry out development projects in 26 locations and 78 partial fields throughout the city.
At yesterday’s meeting, officials of Ulaanbaatar city noted that some project implementing companies encountered several problems, such as failure to reach an agreement with landowners and lack of buyer demand for apartments built within the re-planning. Considering the issues, a working group has developed a draft to make some amendments to the regulation and the council discussed the draft, agreeing to discuss it again at the next meeting.
Also at the meeting, a re-planning of Yarmag, an emerging housing district in the western area of the city, was touched upon. It is planned that the Yaramg’s current Ger district areas will be developed as townhouse districts, and its main streets are planned to have residential apartments and buildings to be served as shops and services.
Ulaanbaatar city municipality reported that a total of 268 ha land area of Ger districts in Khan-Uul district, including the Yarmag, will be re-developed to accommodate 40200 people of 11100 households. A secondary school for 7680 students, a kindergarten for 2880 children and 770-bed hospital are planned in the area.
