“In fact, on this site we see one of the examples of how to do, how to make investments: first-class office premises, social and cultural facilities under construction, a hotel, housing. This is, by and large, a city within a city, and there are good quality facilities here, some of the best. It’s just a unique complex for New Moscow, and I hope that it will not be the last, ”stressed Sergei Sobyanin.
The Comcity project is developing successfully, part of the office park has already been commissioned, said Martin Schaffer, Chairman of the Board of Directors of PPF Real Estate Russia. “We are creating a specific cluster, we call it Comcity. As a continuation of the project, the second phase is being developed now – a hotel and housing for the employees who will work here are being built, ”he said.
The new complex is located in the Moskovsky settlement, near the village of Rumyantsevo and the metro station of the same name. It will occupy an area of 45 hectares. In general, it is planned to build 288 thousand square meters of class A office space, shopping galleries and a hotel. A residential complex with a total area of 152 thousand square meters is being built next to the office park.
The project is being implemented in a “city within a city” format, which is conceptually new for Russia. The concept is based on the principles of progressive architecture. The office park should become eco-friendly and in harmony with people and nature.
The first stage (phase “Alpha”) of the office park with an area of 185 thousand square meters was commissioned in 2014. The space has attracted well-known international and Russian companies.
The first and largest tenant was Rostelecom, which occupies more than 48 thousand square meters. The three leaders in terms of leased premises also include Tele2 (about 20 thousand square meters) and Systematica (over 17.5 thousand square meters). Other tenants include Oracle (6.4 thousand square meters), Coca-Cola (5.4 thousand square meters) and 3M (3.4 thousand square meters). More than 10 thousand people work in the office park.
For residents and visitors of Comcity there are shops, a pharmacy, a bank, a notary, a fitness club, beauty salons, dry cleaning, a wine shop, 17 cafes and restaurants of various formats. In total, there are 40 tenants in the shopping gallery.
Comcity is recognized as the best business park in Moscow according to the annual Commercial Real Estate (CRE) Awards, established in 2003.
The construction of the second phase (phase “Bravo”) with an area of 103 thousand square meters began in 2019, the work is planned to be completed in 2021. The specialists will erect two office buildings, a four-star hotel with 150 rooms, a shopping gallery, underground and surface parking for 583 cars.
Now the construction readiness of the second stage facilities is 30 percent.
In parallel with the office park, a residential complex is being built, designed for 1.5 thousand apartments. The complex will consist of five semi-closed buildings with a height of six to nine floors. The houses form a system of open courtyards with access to the central pedestrian boulevard.
Each building will have a separate parking, which can be accessed directly from the residential part. The high ground floor will be designed to accommodate the internal infrastructure of the complex, as well as apartments in which it will be possible to organize outdoor recreation areas.
A picturesque pond will appear on the territory of the complex. Sun loungers and benches will be installed. For the residents of the complex, a school for 350 students, a kindergarten for 150 children, medical, trade, sports and entertainment facilities, as well as parking for 843 parking spaces will open.
The implementation of projects will create more than 16 thousand jobs and comfortable living conditions for more than two thousand people.
According to Sergei Sobyanin, the active development of the territory of the TyNAO continues: “Today, half a million people live here, 260 thousand new jobs have been created, about two trillion rubles of investments have been invested in the development, two-thirds of them are private investments.”
He noted that investors are investing not only in job creation, but also in the construction of housing and social facilities. The Moscow Mayor also inspected the progress of the improvement of the Govorovsky Forest Park and talked with local residents.
Already next year, the park will have comfortable walking paths, routes for schoolchildren’s activities and recreation, playgrounds and sports grounds will be created here, said the contractor’s representative Oleg Dubnov. “The work will be completed by September 2021,” he said. “There will be two large playgrounds, places for sports, two routes for senior citizens and athletes, bike paths.”
At the same time, only small-sized equipment is used for work, even garbage is removed manually. This is necessary to avoid damaging existing trees. The prefect of the TiNAO Dmitry Nabokin added that the park project was created taking into account the opinion of the residents of the annexed territories, as well as the adjacent Western District.
