Abstract The article was prepared on the basis of a communication at a scientific seminar devoted to a discussion of the problems and patterns of development of urban agglomerations in the light of one of the fundamental proposals of the Spatial Development Strategy of the Russian Federation for the period until 2025. The theoretical assumptions laid down in the development of the strategy are analyzed and the real consequences and possibilities of obtaining the designed results are estimated. The declared and actually pursued goals of exploiting agglomeration effects are compared as an institutional tool for creating a homogeneous economic space and increasing the productivity of economic resources in a macroeconomic context. The probability of achieving each of the options in the target area of the strategy is estimated.
