More than 5 million people live and work in Tashkent today, and this figure will increase in the coming years, Azernews reports.

To meet the needs of the capital, it is necessary to build more than 20 thousand apartment buildings, more than 40 schools, kindergartens and polyclinics annually. With this in mind, in cooperation with specialists from the United Kingdom, Singapore, China and Turkiye, a draft Master Plan for the city until 2045 has been developed, the national news agency UzA writes.

The project provides for a phased expansion of the capital's territory and the creation of a new city with an area of 25,000 hectares between the Chirchik and Korasu rivers: it is designed to accommodate about 2.5 million people.
It is planned to build multi-storey buildings, educational and health institutions, as well as a number of ministries, universities, cultural institutions and social facilities at the first stage. The master plan presented by Cross Works also provides for the construction of a complex of twin towers with a height of 575 meters, which will occupy the fifth place in the world.

"The Head of State drew attention to the fact that the capital should become an environmentally friendly city, comfortable for the population in all respects, therefore, the implementation of the Tashkent Green Belt project will begin from the territory of New Tashkent," the article says. It is reported that a Central park will be laid here on 420 hectares, in which 200 thousand trees will be planted.
