The regularities of step-by-step development of the city space-planning structure of Kharkov are considered. There have been revealed five stages of development, starting from the initial fortification structure located on the cape at the confluence of two rivers and turning during its historic development into a big-sized, second largest and most important city of the Ukraine. The invariability of the three-part structure of the city due to the specific location of the city and the direction of the outbound highways is stated. The location of high-rise landmarks in the city development up to the 1920-s is indicated. The regularity of the formation in the second half of the XX century to north of the former fortress three-part spatial dominant of Kharkov is substantiated.
