Large Indian and Chinese companies, working in the IT sector, could become residents of a new IT cluster – the Phystech XXI, being created in the north of Moscow, RIA Novosti learned from the press-service of the Morton Group of Companies, which is building the cluster.
“The Phystechpark, an IT Technopark – designed and built in just 11 months by the Morton Company, using funds allocated by the Ministry of Communications of Russia and the Government of Moscow – has over 30,000 sq. m. of premises. The already constructed premises are now almost fully occupied by leading Russian IT companies, and promising domestic start-ups, while foreign companies have expressed keen interest in the next phase of our project,” said the news agency’s source.
He added that over the past month, his company completed a series of presentations of this project in India and China. More than a dozen companies from these countries have already expressed their willingness to consider Moscow’s new IT cluster, when it comes to selecting a place to build their headquarters.
According to the company, the total area of the Phystech XXI International Scientific and Educational Cluster will eventually surpass 657,000 sq. m., and be located on 219 hectares of land. In addition to the already built IT Technopark, which takes up only 5% of the total area, the cluster will also include research, exhibition, education, and business platforms. By 2021, they plan to build a business park here with 217,000 sq. m. of premises, an innovation complex with 137,000 sq. m. of space, and a scientific and exhibition complex with 269,000 sq. m. of buildings. By this time, a landscaped nature park will be located nearby on an area of 120 hectares, and transport access will be provided.
