The project with a working name "Petrivka" of Arricano Company (located at the intersection of Jordanska Street, named before Laiosha Gavro Street and Stepana Bandery Avenue, named before Moskovskyi Avenue in the Obolonskii District of Kyiv) is unique because it commenced not with a construction, but with a social project aimed at the improvement of the territory.
A public open space as well as recreation zones will be organized around the Jordan and Kyrylivske lakes and around Pochaina River at the initiative of social mobilizers, city deputies, Kyiv City Administration within the framework of the project "Let's Make It Together!" initiated by Kyiv City State Administration.
