In 1415, Vasily I of the Grand Duchy of Moscow built the village of Shchukino to the east of the Moskva River.

After the war and before the beginning of mass building of the 1960s there has continued the residential construction in the Oktyabrskoye Pole district (already at 5 floors) and a development of scientific establishments. Near the Kurchatov Institute there had been originated the A.Bochvar Institute of Inorganic Materials. The "journey of two academics" (Maximov street) has divided two "nuclear" territories. Nearby, there has set the stage of the Research Institute of Instrumentation on the Raspletin street and at the north, the Institute of Virology and Epidemiology was constructed on a Gamalei street. There were built cottage towns for management of the institutes on the Rogov street, Pehotnaya street and Aviacionnaya street. Most of them were demolished in the early 1980s. The Hospital № 6 was built for professors and management who worked on the atomic projects at the Novoschukinskaya street. Separate "Stalinist" houses have appeared on the Jivopisnaya street, the Kurchatov Square, the Zhadova Square and on adjacent streets.

Mass buildings of the Shchukino district has affected the village Shchukino (Aviacionnaya street, Novoschukinskaya street), and some neighborhoods on the Maximova street, Biruzova street and others. Mostly it was completed in the 1970s. In the late 1970s the large-scale construction has shifted on the west to the Strogino district where was set the stage of the Stroginsky bridge in 1981.
