The network of hotels on the water will appear in Moscow
The network of “floating hotels” is planned to be organized in the coming years on the Moscow River. The total number of rooms of these hotels will be more than five thousand, informs Konstantin Timofeev, the chairman of the Committee of ensuring the implementation of capital investment projects in construction and control of business construction.
The “floating hotels” will be built of the bases of the old barges and ships, and they will settle down along the Moscow river embankments.
“There is a lot of free embankments, and it is easy connect to connect such an object to electricity and other communications” – the news agencies quote Konstantin Timofeev. In 2011, it is planned to open 50 of such objects.
As the chairman of Moskomstroyinvest notes, now the capital requirement in the hotels is provided by only 30%, which means that to fully meet the requirements it is necessary to build a total capacity of about 700 hotels with 300 thousands of rooms.
