However, the Kiev appeal to the General plan of the city, which indicates that the permissible height of buildings in the historical part of the capital should not exceed 27 meters – and it’s only 9 floors.

Officials explain that the General plan of 27 meters is a recommendation, not a requirement, and agreement to construction on the site of the former hay market has provided the Ministry of culture. “The city currently has no legal leverage over the developer. So this is the beginning of the negotiation process, and this suggests that the city is not” – says the head of the legal division of the Department of planning and architecture Victor Kolyadenko. Meanwhile, the object construction doesn’t stop – there are intensively erected one floor at a time even on weekends.
