The subject of this research is to develop the major directions of complex socio-ecological-economic development of Moscow based on the best examples of the development of foreign cities. In the context of rapid growth of the metropolis, Moscow faces a number of environmental, infrastructure and other problems requiring complex solutions. Many developed countries have accumulated significant experience in solving typical problems of mega-cities. The analysis of foreign experience has shown that certain positive shifts are only possible with case by case approach. However, sustainable effect can be achieved through long-term strategic planning development of the city from the perspective of the population growth. Problems requiring complex solutions can be divided into three groups: environmental, social, infrastructural. The analysis of foreign experience shows that a successful promotion strategy for city development requires certain prerequisites, such as: 1) coordination between political choice and strategic planning development of the city; 2) stabilization of the population and reduction of its density. The last factor is very important, and here it is impossible to do without some of territorial planning at the Federal level.

On the basis of the identified critical insufficiency of a widespread extrapolation approach to the development strategy of the Russian city we synthesize a stepwise process of long-term economic development of the city through changing technological bases, represented as a chain of successive steps of the main strategic decision makers. The resulting trajectory of economic development of the city is presented in the form of regular replacement of long-term waves of radical innovations through restructuring crises. The proposed integrated strategic approach, synthesizing macro- and microeconomic evolutional approaches deriving from the fields of business, finance, management, strategy, municipal and state regulation can help all the participants of the transition process to innovative path of development, which adds to the leading role of a city in the context of globalization.
