Annotation: 

The article makes the point that specialists as well as the general public are dissatisfied with the artistic and imaginative characteristics of highways and residential development in the new districts of Saint Petersburg and the critical technical condition of the facades of buildings erected in recent decades. The authors express their support for proposals to extend the «Facades of Saint Petersburg» program to the peripheral districts of the city, and emphasize the importance of the citywide coordination of local measures. A list of the conditions that ensured the success of Nevsky Prospect reconstruction in the early XIX century is formulated. It is noted that this experience should serve as an example of the peripheral highways transformation in our days.
