Norilsk 40th anniversary gave birth to new district

January 27, 2023

1993 can be considered the year of the new Norilsk district birth - settling people into the Oganer's houses began.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Its first inhabitants were residents of emergency houses and families with many children, who were waiting for their four- and five-room apartments: in the first year, 144 such families were relocated to Oganer. Fire victims from Kirov street also received apartments there: in 1993, the house of the Polyarny store burned down. Families who had been living in dormitories and Hrushchev era apartments for years moved to spacious apartments of new layouts, and therefore 1993 can be called the year of big moves.

On February 20, 1993, a historic housewarming party took place in the only housing department of Oganer. Since local authorities were not yet created in Oganer, the builders handed over a symbolic key to the head of the housing department. The first Oganer residents were given tea, congratulated and wished a pleasant housewarming. Of course, Oganer did not become what the designers dreamed of: instead of six microdistricts, only half of one was built, and instead of the planned 70 thousand inhabitants, only six thousand people settled there.

On June 7, a thousand-bed hospital was opened in Oganer – the most modern medical facility in the entire Krasnoyarsk region, and at the same time the tallest building in the Norilsk industrial region. The combine’s director Anatoly Filatov cut the red ribbon at the opening, the Croatian ambassador Niko Bezmalinovich and the first director of the Croatian company Monter, which built the hospital, Milan Mandich, came to the celebration. The hospital project was developed back in 1968: that is, a quarter of a century passed from conception to commissioning.

In the History Spot’s previous publication, we told that 1988 in Norilsk was a year of big visits.
