During the next two months, the St. Petersburg Property Management Committee will buy seven completed sport and leisure centers with total area of 39,000 square meters from Gazprom, Russia’s oil and gas giant. Forty facilities in total are to be bought in 2014, with the city spending 1.7 billion rubles ($49.4 million) for the complexes, Fontanka.ru reports.

The facilities that the city is buying were built as part of Gazprom’s Corporate Social Responsibility program and are located throughout the city. The facilities include two-, three- and five-story sports complexes equipped with swimming pools, gyms, fitness centers and doctors' offices. Once the buildings are acquired by the city, management will be overseen by the Committee for Physical Culture and Sport.

In addition, the city has announced plans to purchase health care facilities, daycare centers, public schools and youth centers. Current social infrastructure projects are being built in the Slvyanka district as well as part of the Baltiskaya Zhemchuzhina and Severnaya Dolina housing projects. A complete list of the facilities to be acquired by the city in 2014 is currently being drafted. Seven state-owned sorts facilities are also expected to be transferred to the city in 2014.
