Kobyakovo is a community approximately 50 kilometres north from the centre of Moscow. The site is located adjacent to an old dacha's settlement, a cemetery on the northern site boundary and a soviet era apartment complex to the west.
The master plan is composed of four distinctive neighbourhoods organized along a central collector road that links all neighbourhood amenity areas, a variety of residential densities located at key points where potential future transit could be located, and a medium sized commercial retail area to be supported by the proposed and existing community. An existing arterial road bisects the community, providing key access points to the new community.
