From metal to composite
From next year, St. Petersburg will begin to use massively complex domestic pipes for heating networks. In the future, a factory may appear to produce them.
When laying cold water pipes, the use of composite materials has already become the rule. For heating networks, due to temperature parameters, no composite pipes were used. Now a technical solution has been found, the implementation is in progress and pilot projects have started. The warranty period for such pipes is from 50 to 70 years.
You do not need to go to the forest!
Until July 10, visits to protected areas and urban forests of St. Petersburg are prohibited. This decision of the authorities is connected with the beginning of the fire-fighting season.
A simple walk, even without a fire, at this time, can result in a fine of many thousands. According to the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation, there may be a fine: for citizens from 40 to 50 thousand rubles, for employees – from 60 to 90 thousand rubles. for legal entities – from 600 thousand to one million rubles.
In the territory of the subject of the Federation there are 16 specially protected natural areas (SPNA). The most famous forest areas are the Gladyshevsky, Novoorlovsky, Shungerovsky, Lake Shchuchye and Yuntolovo reserves.

Who will buy the barracks?
In July, the St. Petersburg Property Fund intends to auction off part of the lower-level gendarmerie barracks at Manezhny Lane, 14. The sale was made possible after the city authorities reached an agreement with the Research Institute of Command Instruments, which is obliged to implement the program for the sale of non-core assets of the state-owned company Roscosmos.
We are talking about two areas overlooking Kirochnaya Street and the Manezhny Lane, as well as two buildings with a courtyard with plots. The total area of the complex for sale is 9.5 thousand square meters. meters.
The barracks were built in 1857-1858 by one of the best Russian connoisseurs of the construction art, RB Bernhard. In Soviet and post-Soviet times, the building housed a scientific institute that developed equipment for automatic control systems in the rocket and space industry.
The initial price of the lot is 579.7 million rubles.
The old house came out under the hammer
The Russian Auction House, on behalf of the City Property Relations Committee, sold a building with a plot of land in the Bolshoi Kazachy 10 lane. The transaction price was 213.7 million rubles.
The eight-storey building – the Kiselev apartment building – was built in 1906. It is not recognized as a cultural heritage site, it belongs to an ordinary historic building.
About nine years ago, the house was declared an emergency and relocated.
Today the building is in a very sad condition. Last year, the city authorities decided to sell it and included it in the State Property Privatization Program for 2022 and the programming period of 2023 and 2024.
The total area of the building is 3957.5 square meters and the plot is 1430 square meters.
