The Ulaanbaatar municipal organisation offices are to move to the New Yarmag Centre in the Khan-Uul District of the capital. Consisting of three blocks, the new office complex will cover 58262 square meters; the total allocated area is to be 5.0 hectares. Construction is nearly complete.
According to the master plan, the Ulaanbaatar City Mayor’s office, the City Administration and Citizens’ Representative Council office will reside in the 10 story ‘A’ block, the sub-agencies of the UB City Administration in the 13 story ‘B’ block, and reception, a sports centre and all ‘one-window’ services in the three story ‘C’ block.
The municipal organisations provide 332 kinds of government services to an average 5700 individuals and enterprises every day. The decision to move the administration buildings out of the centre, was largely determined by the traffic congestion caused; it is estimated that nearly 200,000 cars need to enter Ulaanbaatar city centre daily causing traffic jams.
