‘Oganer city to be here!’

September 02, 2020

In February 1993, tenants moved into the first houses.

In February 1985, the marking of a new construction site began – the Oganer residential area. It was to become the “city of the future”. A special series of houses was developed for it. “Oganer is the first attempt in the country to create the most reasonable, comfortable organization of a residential area for northerners”, the newspaper wrote at that time. It was designed jointly by Mosproekt-1 and Norilskproekt.

Five microdistricts remained on paper, only 55 percent of the first one was built

It was planned to build it like a “second Norilsk” in size – six large micro-districts. But they didn’t manage to build a new city the way they dreamed – the realities changed. Five microdistricts remained on paper, only 55 percent of the first one was built. Instead of the planned 80 thousand inhabitants, only six thousand settled there.

In 1992, when it was time for the first residents of Oganer to get settled, its streets were named: Valkovskaya, Ozernaya, Yugoslavskaya and Brusnichnaya. On the first one there is only a school and a shop, on the last one – piles and grillages.

On January 6, 1993, buses of the new routes No.40 and 41 appeared. On February 20, the residents of the first houses: 5, 6 and 8 on Yugoslavskaya street celebrated housewarming in Oganer. The tenants settled in a family, good-neighborly atmosphere: drank tea and made friends.
