DCH group owned by Aleksandr Yaroslavskyi pays considerable attention to the development of the cultural environment and infrastructure of Kharkiv as one of the largest megacities of Ukraine. Largely thanks to the efforts and investments of Yaroslavskyi, the city gained its modern look and was transformed in the process of preparing Kharkiv for Euro 2012. The central infrastructure facilities of the first capital of Ukraine were created by the businessman – the Metalist Stadium, Kharkiv International Airport and Kharkiv Palace 5*, one of the best luxury hotels in Eastern Europe, are the results of his investments.
Ecopolis HTZ High Tech Business Park is a long-term investment project of Aleksandr Yaroslavskyi’s DCH group. Ecopolis HTZ business park will be located on the idle production facilities of the Kharkiv Tractor Plant (KhTZ) known in the world since Soviet times, which will become the anchor resident of the industrial cluster. Redevelopment of an area of about 150 hectares involves the construction of more than 500 thousand square meters of office, warehouse, industrial and other premises. The planned investment in the development of Ecopolis HTZ business, technological, industrial and research ecosystem will reach about $1 billion by 2033. The implementation of this project will create at least 10 thousand modern jobs. The business park will include an industrial park, a technological park (IT and R & D clusters), a logistics complex with an e-commerce distribution centre, an agrotechnological and trade cluster, a medical and educational centre. Ecopolis HTZ is one of the key projects in the development strategy of the city of Kharkiv for 2020-2030.
