Our dacha neighbors have recently sold their plot (with a small house on it, most likely to be demolished by the new owners) for $100,000.
A few streets away from us, something is selling for $350,000.
There's a lot of construction going on everywhere here, and the houses being built aren't some tiny little huts.
Rusanivski Sady is just minutes away from Livoberezhna metro station, and it's a comparatively wonderful place in general, and so this construction boom wouldn't have been surprising at all - if only it hadn't been for the huge Podil-Voskresensky Bridge, which, if completed, would cut right through the dacha neighborhood, wiping away a big chunk of it. Those whose property would be affected, however, refuse to accept compensation for their plots and seem to be determined to fight the city to the end.
I'm slowly posting photos from Rusanivski Sady here.
