South-West, the region of large-scale residential development, a part of Krasnoselsky District territory to the north of Petergofskoe Freeway and to the west from Stachek Avenue. In the north-west, it opens on the Neva Bay of the Gulf of Finland; in the west, it adjoins Yuzhno-Primorsky Park, in the south - Sosnovaya Polyana, in the north - the territory of the port and the industrial zone adjacent to it. It is named according to its location from the centre of St. Petersburg. Until the late 1970s, it remained a water-logged neglected ground, while today it is one of the largest and most rapidly developing residential districts of the city. In the course of construction works, the territory level was raised 2.5-3.2 m with the sand pad from the gulf. The main thoroughfares are Leninsky Avenue, Marshal Zhukov Avenue, Marshal Kazakov Street and Doblesti Street. In the south of the district, there is an extensive Yunona Market.
