The article is devoted to one of the components of the sustainable development of cities - the creation of an urban "green" infrastructure. The development of such infrastructure in cities contributes to an increase in the flow of benefits from ecosystem services and is an important trend in the formation of a green economy. Particular attention is paid to the assessment of the economic efficiency of ecosystem services in cities. The methodological basis for justifying the introduction of eco-infrastructure in cities is the mathematical modeling of the urban area, which shows what economic benefits households and municipalities can receive from the introduction of "green" infrastructure.
The article provides an economic assessment of the "green" infrastructure (the so-called "city in the garden") on the example of the project of a new eco-district of the city of Kazan. It is shown that an integrated approach to creating an urban environment with an emphasis on the health and well-being of citizens is beneficial for the economy of the city and the country as a whole.
