Earlier today (15 May) the mayor of Ulaanbaatar announced a design contest for the development of the 2.5 hectares of land at the south end of Sukhbaatar Square. The winner will be awarded MNT 30 million cash. Professional students, individuals and design enterprises are able to participate in the contest. There is a very tight window for submissions: the Ulaanbaatar city administration will receive design works on the 13th floor of Khangarid House from today until 29 May.
The Ulaanbaatar city administration recently reclaimed the 2.5 hectares land of Sukhbaatar Square which had been used as a car park in breach of contract from the UB Construction Company last month. One of the requirements of the original contract had been to adorn the area between the square and Peace Avenue with a fountain.
