Would you live in a high quality commieblock with all amenities and goods in walking distance?
It's alright. I'm about 10 mins away from work here on foot. Practically got the floor to myself here apart from one old man - there's lot of empty apartments around here. Pretty cosy and we even have Slavcarpets on the walls.
I already do, it's nice desu. I live 10 mins from the mall, 15 mins from the beach, have a bunch of really small food places literally down stairs. Only downside is loud neighbors but it's not so bad.
You don't even know how do Slavcarpets look, lol.
you mean it has to be built by commies?
these days it doesn't specificially refer to khruschevkas or even chinese housing, so the only one who's retarded here is you
I see no difference between chinese concrete forests and singaporean concrete forests anyway
even the horrors of "dense building" in moscow are tame compared to that.
>What's wrong with that?
Commieblocks can be relatively nice when there's at least 4x-5x space between them and they are 4-5 stories high. Anything denser or higher and you end up with a concrete jungle with no place for a human.
That's a misconception
They can be tall but spaced closely
A sense of openness can be achieved by using a garden.
You can also put stores on the floor level to stimulate human activity.
In other words you model the ground as a walkable streetside.
Vancouver does this, let me bring up an example.
there's no space at all
that horror is called "densified building" in some russian cities, I can't imagine how can someone exist in chinese blocks
finns build the greenest blocks among everyone I know, which is no surprise since the entire country is a fucking forest
>That's a misconception
I live in such "misconception".
>A sense of openness can be achieved by using a garden.
There's no space for a garden among everything else if you don't have 5-stories blocks spaced closer than 4x their dimensions.
>You can also put stores on the floor level to stimulate human activity.
OH NO NOT THIS SHIT BURN IT DOWN PLEASE NO
How do they deal with parkings? You have to build underground, or designate large areas between blocks, or just commute by bus or a bicycle. Either way it's a clusterfuck, wasted time or lots of walking.
Yes, I live in one and it's fine. Live alone, 30m2 of space, the interior is pleasant and the bills are cheap. What is there not to like? Mine was built by the military after the Skopje earthquake so the construction is great and resistant to earthquakes.
They have stacked parkings
>OH NO NOT THIS SHIT BURN IT DOWN PLEASE NO
Why, you want to make the place more vibrant, more lively. Maybe even put some of that lightpipe to bring some sunlight eh?
Tell me how was it.
commieblocks/apartments are cancer whether amenities and goods in walking distance or not.
>can't listen music on a satisfying volume after 10 pm
>can't even home party properly
>no garage to tinkering
>having pets like dogs sucks
>too many people therefore too many cars, parking might be problem even if your apartment has garage, it can be full
>loud sex can be problem whether you or your neighbours are doing it
fuck apartments/commieblocks. If I had a chace I would never live in these shitholes. foreclosure houses are luxury/rare here even most rich people live in apartments.
