New pedestrian street will be opened in the city centre at the end of 2013. The place will be called «Romanov Alley» and will host cafes, grocery stores and cooking schools. There are only seven pedestrian zones now in Moscow with a total length of just over 5 km. The new street will take its place along with Arbat, Kuznetskiy most, Kamergersky, Stoleshnikov, Klimentovsky, Lavrushinsky and Ipatyevsky streets.
The Romanov Street quarter is now filled with offices, restaurants, a cinema and a health club. Now, the office staff and visitors of the fitness club will have the ability to walk at quiet stroll and relax after work (or take a cup of coffee before it). Every building is said to be renovated. The investor of the project promises that the new street would be analogous to the Grand Rue pedestrian area of ??Luxembourg.
