IMERETINKA 2.0 is the next generation of vibrant and sustainable resort-city. Beyond just being a resort for temporary stay, in Imeretinka 2.0 people live their lives turning it into a complete city. Imeretinka 2.0 offers both permanent residence and temporary visitors, iconic architecture and human-scaled buildings, preserved nature and modern green public spaces, spectacular urban boulevards and cosy alleys, occasional festive events and spaces for daily activities.
IMERETINKA 2.0 consists of 6 main principles;

1. The “Walkable” City

Being “walkable” is one of the main criteria to become a top resort city. Current road network does not provide intimate street walk due to its oversized dimension. “The Loop” with its compact street profile provides intimate and active walking and cycling with shops and cafes along, and it also connects all neighbourhoods and main facilities of Imeretinka 2.0.

2. United Nature

Nature optimises its value both in recreationally and ecologically when it becomes a part of a larger ecological network. Currently fragmented three large green spaces are connected by a new green promenade and a greenification of existing canal. It encourages migration of insects, birds, reptiles, and mammals. And it becomes a recreational linkage for pedestrian and cyclists.

3. Clearly Defined Axes

Strong and clear urban structure is vital for making resilient and long-lasting town planning. There are two main axes laid out in Imeretinka 2.0 and each starts at the station “Olympic Village” and ends up in clear destinations – Marina and sports venues. And each axis magnetizes business and education facilities in proximity to the station.

4. A Variety Of Neighbourhoods

A diverse character of neighbourhoods makes the city vibrant and liveable. Newly introduced six neighbourhoods of Imeretinka 2.0 are created complementary to existing four neighbourhoods of Imeretinsky to be a coherent city. Building typologies of each neighbourhood optimize its gifted landscape context and sceneries.

5. Smart Parking

Underground parking is never a preferable method not only due to its high costs giving a development pressure but also its negative environmental impacts. Especially considering high flood risk of the Imereti Lowlands, it is natural to seek alternative parking solutions to minimize the number of underground parking. Imeretinka 2.0 provides a variety of smart parking solutions.

6. Optimizing Existing Roads

Given roads of Imeretinka 2.0 are yet dominated by tarmac and over-dimensioned to deserve a resort town character. Estimated future traffic flow of the area allows greenification and compacting road profiles. To minimize the conversion costs of these rather recently constructed roads, preservation of major elements of the roads such as the position of curb stones and underground pipes is recommendable.
