These buildings will be based on sustainable development principles and using advanced green technologies. The houses will be energy-efficient, and the bills for their utility services will be very small. The quality of the construction will meet all the international standards. These blocks will be among the most the best housing in Astana in terms of quality," the Minister of Environment and Water Resources Nurlan Kapparov said during the briefing, pointing out that the residential buildings will be constructed by both domestic and foreign developers.

Speaking about distinctive features of the EXPO district Nurlan Kapparov stressed that it would be one of the most comfortable districts to live in in the capital of Kazakhstan.
