The Master plan was based on the idea of cluster development of the territory with the introduction of multifunctional complexes and aimed at reaching the potential of the territory as a new agglomeration center of the Volga region. The territory transformation strategy focuses on three key concepts: ECOLOGY, ECONOMY and EMOTION. The concept of ECOLOGY and its principles are used to strengthen lost natural connections, which led to the fragmentation of the ecological city network. The concept of ECONOMY is introduced in order to boost economic aspects and create a sustainable economy. The concept of EMOTION is aimed at creating a modern public space with various interesting facilities for recreation and leisure for residents of the Samara region and its guests. The development of the territory includes organization of landscape communication with the Volga river, creation of a network of green rays and a cluster approach to master planning. The key challenges in elaboration of the master plan were to develop the territory in harmony with nature and create a comfortable modern urban environment. The diversified landscape of the territory perfectly complements the natural diversity that Samara and close areas have. The proposed project does not only imply creation of a new modern space around the Samara Arena stadium but also acts as a driver of the development of the entire region.

Smart Samara. Slogan: "Work smart – Play smart – Live balanced"
The key elements of the Smart Samara concept are two striking new quarters within the district of the Samara Arena stadium. The ‘Technopolis’ cluster featuring research, technology, and health cluster in the northern part of the territory is being complemented by numerous sports, leisure, and entertainment activities in the ‘Zhiguli Garden’ quarter adjacent to the stadium. These two co-productive quarters constitute mutually reinforcing poles of an integrated and balanced city concept, which strongly addresses educational and occupational needs as well as enhancing the quality of life for residents and attracting tourism toward the Samara Tolyiatti agglomeration. The Smart Samara concept makes outmost use of all existing infrastructure in the Samara Arena district. Based on experience from projects like HafenCity Hamburg and the IFC district in Moscow, the concept was designed with a highly realistic approach toward the financial and technical feasibility of its prospective implementation, which shall see Samara benefit from substantial foreign direct investments over the next decades.

The essence of the masterplan for the Samara Arena territories development is a new format of life that the residents of the megapolis are dreaming about — this is the format of a 20 - minute city, in which in 20 minutes citizens can get to all city services and realize any of their needs — work, home, sports, outdoor activities, quiet time alone or with a family. The masterplan offers a whole range of development opportunities — we create new centers of economic activity that can be implemented at different times. There are also more investment —intensive projects in the masterplan, the development of which will bring the region's economy to a new level.

The concept [SAMARA SLABODA - the territory of experiments] focuses on the creation of an environment characterized by freedom of thought and the possibility of experiments. The concept is based on the idea of continuing the development of the district as a sports core of the city and saturating the territory with additional functionality that provides synergy between various functions. The concept proposes the addition of complementary functions to existing areas that complement each other. For this, 6 clusters have been allocated on the territory: residential, natural, sports and entertainment, congress and exhibition and office and scientific. An important principle for the development of the territory is creation of various points of attraction for various target audiences, regardless of social status and age. Particular emphasis is placed on the social significance of the project: it is planned to develop a children's football school, healthcare and educational institutions, the construction of various sports facilities for mass and professional sports, and most importantly, the construction of a large-scale park with recreation areas, attractions, a cable car and a Ferris wheel. In addition, it is planned to create a concert and exhibition center with a hotel, office space and a technopark, a residential area with infrastructure. The construction of these facilities will improve the image of the territory and create points of attraction for various groups of users (athletes, youth, families with children, citizens of the older generation). The concept of the project provides for the flexibility of the elements: in the event of an unfavorable market situation, by the time the implementation begins, it is possible to replace some components with others.
