The area of St. Petersburg is about 144,000 hectares, of which industrial areas occupy 24% of urban land. The historical center of the city is surrounded by the so-called "gray belt", which is a zone of industrial enterprises that are unsuitable for further use for their intended purpose and that have come to an emergency condition. It was formed in the following way: enterprises were moved to the outskirts of the city, and when the development of the residential zone within the "belt" became impossible, urban development continued beyond its borders. This type of industrial development is typical for most large cities over 200 years old. Many foreign cities and towns of Russia, to varying degrees, have faced the problem of reorganizing such territories. St. Petersburg continues to develop and accept new residents, but it needs an urgent transition from extensive growth to building a model of sustainable urbanization and improving the quality of infrastructure.
The purpose of this work is to provide research results that consider the effectiveness of methods for reorganizing industrial areas in urban development on the example of one of the buildings of the "gray belt". The research object is located on the territory of a residential area under construction.
The results of the project showed the effectiveness of greening the roof and facade of the building in order to increase its energy efficiency, reduce water consumption and compensate for insufficient gardening at home (this problem is especially relevant for the central districts of the city).
