Where officials, billionaires, “stars” and “authorities” live in the northern capital
The main houses of St. Petersburg. On the first day of March, Rosreestr stopped publishing data on the information of property owners in the Unified State Register. This should complicate the process of monitoring the wealth of those who are commonly called tops and VIPs. Still, housing is one of the clear measures of success in life. Finally, 47news ran through the owners of St. Petersburg elite real estate, who gave reason to talk about themselves.
So, house number 4 on Italianskaya Street has seen many and many things, because in its basement there is the legendary Stray Dog, and in the neighboring courtyard the Mikhailovsky Theater, but recently attention has been drawn to this building by the lawsuit about the flood of Anastasia Volochkova and the local HOA. Where there is a famous ballerina, there is always a fiesta of news, which means that even a heavy communal emergency topic will not wash away interest in her airiness.
If we focus on the deluge-dispute of the star, then the defendant in the lawsuit is not only the partnership, but also Kirill Viktorovich Krutikov. First of all, this name is associated with the federal developer GK “FSK”. If according to Rosreestr, then Krutikov is on the fifth floor, and Anastasia Yuryevna is on the fourth and third. However, if we focus on the January reports from the Dzerzhinsky court, then Volochkova noted that the apartment in the house on Italianskaya is dear to her as a museum exhibit, otherwise she has not lived in it for a long time.
In the past, the owner of two apartments in this building at once was Alexander Nesis, a billionaire from Forbes, known for the ICT investment group. Today, the name Nesis is still among the owners of square meters in a prestigious house, but these are women – Maryana and Yulia.
For a long time, Italianskaya, 4, was the official address of the Baltic Construction Company (BCC) of the reputable businessman Gennady Petrov. Therefore, it is not surprising that one of the apartments here belongs to Anton Petrov. The name of Petrov Jr. is associated with the development of the 585*Zolotoy jewelry chain.
Here you can also find relatives of the late Yeltsin Minister of Railways Nikolai Aksenenko, as well as Sergei Amelin, who died unexpectedly ten years ago, who controlled the construction empire Stroyimpulse.
The residential complex “The Fifth Element” on Krestovsky Island has been in the history of the elite real estate in St. Petersburg for twenty years. It is located on the territory of the Primorsky Victory Park, right by the South Pond, on the site of the former Vostok restaurant. However, during all this time the house has not ceased to be an apart-hotel. Although potential buyers continue to be lured on prestigious real estate websites with ads about “the most comfortable living spaces”, but according to the legally verified letter of Rosreestr, there are no apartments here, but only premises with abbreviations like “pom L6-N” or “pom 17-N”.
Nevertheless, the spaces in The Fifth Element are quite voluminous, and they are owned by well-known people and not only in St. Petersburg. For example, the owner of two premises at once with the possibility of permanent residence is Sadigov Famil Kamil oglu. Since 2019, the Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of PJSC Gazprom has been in charge of financial and economic issues of the monopoly.
Another owner of square meters in a difficult hotel is Khachaturova Vasilisa Danilovna. In this full name, you can see the daughter of the ex-president of Rosgosstrakh Danila Khachaturov and fashion designer Ulyana Sergeenko. Not far away is Tatyana Naginskaya, and this is the construction holding “Titan-2”, as well as Dmitry Stolov, whose name is clearly combined with advertising in the St. Petersburg subway and not only.
Ulyana Sergeenko and Danila Khachaturov
The Fifth Element itself is a project of Stroymontazh developer Artur Kirilenko and Sergey Polonsky. The corporation went bankrupt, did not survive the crisis of 2008-2009. Sergei “who doesn’t have a billion …” Polonsky, judging by the latest news, is in Dubai, and his ex-partner Artur Kirilenko still has several rooms in the house near the South Pond. Petersburg is a metropolis, but so small that sometimes it seems that the iconic figures of big business simply flow from one status condominium to another.
For example, a prestigious four-story building with a beautiful address is the embankment of the Fontanka River, 1. Here Rosreestr sees the apartment of Nikolai Dobrinov, vice president of the East groups Alexander Nesis from the paragraph about Italian, 4. There is also the apartment of the wife of the ex-chairman of the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation Tamara Stepashina, chairman board of directors of the “Imperial Porcelain Factory” Galina Tsvetkova, former vice-governor of Yugra Vyacheslav Novitsky. Former head of the “Baltic Plant” Oleg Shulyakovsky.
Actually, the “House on the Fontanka” near the Engineering Castle is the flagship project of “Corporation C”. This same letter “C” in the title is usually associated with the names of Maxim Sokolov, Vasily Sopromadze and Nikolai Sergeenko. Maxim Sokolov, who managed to work in Smolny and manage the Ministry of Transport after the St. Petersburg construction projects, now heads AvtoVAZ and is no longer officially on the Fontanka. Now the only owner of the apartment in the house is his wife Anzhelika Ryskova.
Birch alley, 19. Ba! dubious faces! Who grows the most powerful citadel of St. Petersburg
The most powerful house in St. Petersburg, of course, is the residential complex “Birch Alley, 19” on Kamenny Island. Enough has been written about those who own the areas of this citadel of absolute success. Closing 2022, we can state that the composition of the owners of this property has not changed much. What is not a surname, then influence with recognition: Arkady Rotenberg, Gennady Timchenko, Sergei Fursenko, Nikolai Shamalov, Yuri Kovalchuk, Taimuraz Bolloev, Vasily Shestakov. But for such power – “almost” is a lot. It just so happened that one of the apartments on Berezovaya 19 is now under arrest and it all started on February 24th.
It was on this date that the three-story apartment No. 12 in this complex, in all respects, was visited by the Moscow FSB with a long search. The story of the new tenant Dmitry Sokolov is intertwined with the well-known case of the largest Russian crypto exchange WEX. And after the trouble, the owner of 479 squares remained a witness for a minute and disappeared. Nobody can find Dmitry, whose short drama we recently told.
Another address is 2nd Birch Alley, 19 is presented on the website of the St. Petersburg real estate agency Engel & Volkers. The buyer is looking for 4 bedrooms in a residence with a total area of 420 square meters. This offer is now in its third year. As Fontanka wrote, these are Sergey Kolesnikov’s apartments. The emigrant entrepreneur is known for the fact that back in 2010, in an open letter to President Medvedev, he mentioned a construction site in the Gelendzhik region. Note that Sergei Kolesnikov is the owner of two townhouse apartments in a famous house.
In addition, about a year ago, the attention of journalists was attracted by an advertisement for renting an apartment in a house-house. It was published all on the same site Engel&Volkers. For 700 thousand rubles a month, it was proposed to live in a four-story apartment with an area of 447 “squares”, where, for example, one could pass the time on an Italian designer deck chair covered with gold foil. The hostess is a gorgeous lady, but not related to the list of Rothenbkrgs-Shestakovs.
Of course, the retinue plays the king. The Tsar’s Corner at 19 Berezovaya is surrounded by four-story residential buildings of the Berezovaya Alley 13-15 quarter. Their inhabitants emphasize the primacy of the main place.
So, it is these walls that can be called native to the heirs of billionaire Alexei Sargin, who died unexpectedly 6 years ago on vacation at a hotel in Dubai. He went through a lot, was on the wanted list during the raider madness at the beginning of the 2000s, gathered a lot for himself – one of the businessman’s well-known assets was Dom Mod JSC, which owns the center of the same name on Kamennoostrovsky Prospekt. The story of Sargin was closely connected with the biography of the powerful “Tambov” hero of the chronicles of the 90s, Vasily Vladykovsky.
Several apartments on Berezovaya 13-15 are owned by the names of Gvichia, Shcherbakovsky, Buchin. In conjunction, they are associated with the Stepan Razin Beer Factory from the time the plant was sold to the Dutch from Heineken. The latest news about Gia Gvichia is connected only with the tinting, which was mercilessly torn off from his Rolls-Royce during a demonstration raid by the traffic police. What have you come to
The surname Georgy Korzhavin refers to the ship radio-electronic systems of the federal concern Granit-Electron. This is what acoustics should be in a two-story apartment of 300 squares.
With excess, especially during the periods of election campaigns to the St. Petersburg parliament, in the city they talk about another person from the residential complex at 13-15 Berezovaya Alley – businessman Maxim Dolgopolov. The political creed of the entrepreneur changes with the speed of a weather vane in a gusty wind. He swore allegiance to United Russia, took up the Just Cause, briefly oversaw the local Liberal Democratic Party, and then found himself in Just Russia. And at the end of the 2000s, he spent some time in a Dubai prison.
Having mentioned “Fair Russia”, which is now also “For the Truth”, it can be noted that the wife of the leader of this political entity, Sergei Mironov, also gravitates towards this residential complex on Kamenny Island. To some extent, house 13-15 on Berezovaya can be called and ex-lieutenant governor. For example, among the owners of apartments you can find the names of Rashid Ismagilov and Sergei Kozyrev.
2022 was marked for the prestigious home and loss. In November, Dmitry Kozharsky, the president of the FOR GROUP fishing industry and a member of the board of the All-Russian Association of Fisheries, died in a car accident. He is known not only as a fishing business shark, but also as a business person interested in real estate in the historical center of St. 13-15 you can meet the encumbrance in the form of a mortgage. It so happened that people from the “nineteenth” can do without such philistinism.
From Miller to space Asya. The best view of St. Petersburg if you live in a Gazprom hostel
The building at Mytninskaya Embankment, 5, is not an old-timer on the elite residential real estate market in St. Petersburg. This is because, until the mid-2000s, this house was overly residential and was known as the “dormitory on Mytnya”. It is clear what a shelter for a Soviet and Russian student is, even if he is from the prestigious Leningrad State University-St. Petersburg State University: “We do not sleep in the hostel, because we want to eat.”
But today, both the residential building and the neighboring business center are commemorated as perhaps not the most modern in Russia in terms of technical solutions. Authentication by the iris for the current “Mytni” – this is so, the first course, an introductory lecture. And the view from these windows has always been one of the most chic: on the one hand – Petropavlovka, on the other – the Exchange, right across the Neva – the Hermitage. Yes, there is one of the best views in the world.
In rubles, the market appreciates this approximately as follows: for each monument from the window – 10 million. With a discount or as a friend – 8 million.
High-tech architecture thundered for several years, when journalists found Alexei Miller’s gigantic apartment on Mytninskaya, which allegedly appeared by combining six not so gigantic ones. Today, if according to the USRN, the owner of these almost 1,400 square meters is not indicated on the attic top. But the neighboring apartment of 190 square meters is registered with a person with a full name identical to the head of Gazprom.
There are only two dozen apartments in our house on the embankment. Minus – thirteenth. A bad number is practiced in elite housing. They are superstitious. If you go down a little lower, you can see Alexander Bobkov among Miller’s neighbors. But this top manager looked at St. Petersburg from a special height. He oversaw the Gazprom skyscraper Lakhta Center even when it was Okhta. Here is Elena Ilyukhina. She also led the implementation of the Lakhta Center project. Her area of responsibility is not only the legal and corporate issues of Gazprom Neft, she is also on the board of football Zenit.
Another Gazprom trace in the super-house is Andrey Kruglov. He has been the deputy chairman of the board of the monopoly since 2004, that is, from the time when students from the hostel on Mytninskaya were just settled (some closer – to Vasilevsky, someone to zaimka – to Peterhof). On the board of Gazprom Kruglov until 2019, until he was appointed Deputy Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation.
There are almost 300 square meters of Borisova Asya here. Fontanka playfully wrote about the biographical zigzags of “Space Asya” when its management company “Credo” won the competition for the construction of the Supreme Court complex. This is the one nearby, on the Tuchkov Buyan. And it all started in the late 80s with a cool buffet in the Cosmos bar. Then antique shops in the “Passage”, “Astoria” and the Grand Hotel “Europe”. Well, in 2004, the president awards her a state award for the creation of the state complex “Palace of Congresses”, that is, his residence in Strelna. Legal and plausible.
The media mentioned her acquaintance with the former deputy manager Ivan Malyushin. This surname can also be found among the owners of “Mytni”. A couple of years ago, at telegram speeds, a story swept through the news field of St. Petersburg as a fruit businessman with the same name crashed his Ferrari Portofino in Petrogradka for 20 million. Almost 200 luxury squares for an expensive sports car is quite a gentleman’s set.
The LSR group was engaged in the transformation of the old student fund into ultra-modern housing. Therefore, it is logical to see the name and surname E of Elizaveta Molchanova among the owners of apartments on Mytninskaya, 5.
Oleg Tinkov with his wife Rina
As for the neighbors, there are relatives, say, from the same front door, but there are not quite. For example, from a house nearby. It is clear that difficult people also live near “Mytnya”. So, in the third house there is one of the apartments of Rina Vosman, a business partner and wife of the well-known, but now non-handshake Oleg Tinkov. (Tinkov sells his other apartment with a view of the Admiralty). And from the windows of his wife – the view, consider the same – on the “Flying Dutchman” with Petropavlovka, but the roof is already different.
From Sobchak to Von Messing, from Boyarsky to Tambov. How the iconic house on the Moika has changed
Moyka, 31 – it’s six floors and five front doors a minute from the Palace. The house has long had a prestigious reputation, but at the philistine level, its status wanders in two noble trees: Boyarsky – Sobchak.
Sergei (left) and Mikhail Boyarsky
And yet, multi-apartment implies a slightly larger number of residential premises than a couple. There are fifty of them here. There are even more windows, and at Moika 31 they should be with excellent soundproofing. Immediately turn into the Winter Canal. During the white nights, the concentration of river buses at this fork is prohibitive. And this means that from each deck the guide is obliged to shout here to “dear guests” about how the dying Pushkin asked for soaked cloudberries (the poet died in the house opposite), warn about the dangerous dimensions of the 2nd Winter Bridge, and then inform about the place residence of the country’s well-deserved D’Artagnan and the main one in “heavy luxury”. And so non-stop all summer. Mikhail Sergeevich with Larisa Reginaldovna Luppian, daughter-actress Elizabeth and son-deputy Sergey continue to be anchor residents. And these are not only family 183 squares on the first floor Behind the owner Boyarsky are two more small living quarters, also on the ground floor.
As for the neighbor’s eccentricities, the youth of the Boyarskys could hardly tap on the batteries with young Ksyusha. The future and only mayor Anatoly Sobchak, his wife Lyudmila Narusova and 9-year-old Ksyusha settled in the former communal apartment only in 1990. Their floor is the fourth. The St. Petersburg top family moved to the center from the new buildings of Prosvet. Both Lyudmila Borisovna and Ksenia Anatolyevna are still among the residents of the wonderful house.
Lyudmila Narusova (left) and Ksenia Sobchak
Officially, the closest neighbor of the Boyarskys is Elisabeth Elena Von Messing. The heap of German-Courland should not be embarrassing. After all, as Fontanka repeatedly wrote, under this name, the incomparable Elena Skorodumova, who was known to Pomidorikha, was arrested more than once, but she does not digest the pseudonym. Elena’s St. Petersburg swindle has grown into an international detective story, and news traces of her are lost in Finland. The apartment next door to the Boyarskys near Von Messing in the house on the Moika is not the only one. The family of Ivan Uralov, also an artistic dynasty, belongs to the local old-timers. There are many monumentalist Uralov in St. Petersburg – he is at metro stations, in concert halls, churches and libraries. It was under Sobchak that he became the chief artist of the city, and he ceased to be during the early Matvienko period. Later, that invest-Petersburg heard a lot of criticism from the artist Uralov for the tower on Okhta, and for the skating rink on Dvortsovaya, and for the floating fountain at the Vasilyevsky Spit.
It can be said that the inhabitants of Moika, 31 gravitate towards a certain farmstead, inside there are their own agglomerations. For example, one of the largest owners of square meters in a historic building is Elena Karisalova. On the second floor, she owns three apartments at once. The Leningrad Muscovite Elena is known not only as the founder of the Still Art cultural fund, but also as the wife of Mikhail Karisalov, CEO of the petrochemical SIBUR.
Elena and Mikhail Karisalov
By the way, two apartments are currently offered for purchase in the house. The one that has four rooms on the second floor overlooking the Winter Canal is estimated at almost 90 million. Sobchak’s mayorship also includes the period of leadership of the Regional Development Fund of St. Petersburg, Alexander Krepak. He is also an iconic figure of this house. After the era of Sobchak, the time will come for him to be a glass entrepreneur and manage the Mariinsky and Turgenev House business centers.
From St. Petersburg in the 90s there is also the surname Vladykovsky. In the current house on the river, she is represented by her son. Of course, they don’t add the toponym Bryansky to him as a father, but dad was a dashing grunt of the boss of all bosses, Vladimir Kumarin. The powerful Kum has not left the Kresty for 15 years, all his associates were convicted and disappeared, but Vasya-Bryansky managed to escape the wave of history. He is most likely in Europe. Here, as in a joke – he regrets terribly.
In addition, Moika, 31, knows the well-known thermal physicist Oleg Tsvetkov. The name and surname of Yakov Malinin are primarily associated with the building of the legendary shopping complex, formerly known as the “House of Fashion” on Petrogradskaya. And, for example, Yuri Kudimov has recently been with the board of directors of LSR Group.
Not shameful, but sometimes cheerful company.
