Both companies at first zealously undertook performance of the Omsk plans. PEAK with attraction Singapore Surbana International Pte.

But from - for an economic crisis investors not only have suspended works on projects for uncertain time, but also have ceased to pay a current rent for the earth. “ we have lost any resources for the development, therefore have been compelled to suspend building on “Amur“ “ - chairman of board of directors DSK " has told yesterday „“; Strojbeton “ Oleg Zolotov.

the mayoralty carried on negotiations with builders in hope to stir up their activity on development of sites.

He considers that “ the mayoralty and builders - investors should search for compromises, for example, to make the decision on re-structuring of debts “. With the expert Oleg Zolotov agrees also: “ to Understand a city administration, of course, it is possible, but hardly will do good to a city if we, without having now possibility to liquidate a debt, in general we will throw a site in which have already enclosed about 600 million rbl. “.
