The site of the former plant
is about 40ha. Now it is a zone of trade, entertainment, social and business sectors consisting of several groups of entities. The
commercial (Jammoll, SilverMall, furniture centre, construction materials and auto parts market "Sergeevsky" and others), entertainment (KinoJam, Billiard Academy, Jam Park, Ice People, Laser People) and social sector (regional offices of the retirement fund, Siberian Institute of Law, Economics and Management (SILEM)). There is a boiler facility, warehouses and office buildings on the site as well.
The retirement fund offices, SILEM and a few manufacturing facilities are fenced, but the area occupied by the trade and entertainment centres is open for visitors. One would think that this was all one interconnected space but the borders of the sections take the form of junctions of various types of paving and surfacing, differences in level and retaining walls, and storm water drains. Here and there an abrupt change from developed areas to open ground draws a clear line between the "new world" and the reality of the surreal decay of old plant buildings.
But despite the borderlines between the worlds there is a commonality preserved from the past: proximity to several transport corridors. The former plant is located at the merging of two main town roads to form Federal route Р-258, moreover the area (and this is true for industrial zones in other Russian cities too) is adjacent to the Transsib (Kaya is one of three railway stations in Irkutsk). It is the location at the crossing of several roads that determines the domination of the service function over the residential one.
