Roman Abramovich Buys White Gardens Office Center in Central Moscow

Millhouse, a company owned by tycoon Roman Abramovich, has bought White Gardens, an office center in central Moscow, from a multinational consortium led by state-owned investment bank VTB Capital, according to a joint press release.

Located off Tverskaya Ulitsa and near Belorussky Station, White Gardens — designed as a "green" office complex with a focus on energy efficiency — has 64,000 square meters of rentable space, and five underground levels of parking.

The parties to the sale have not disclosed the value of the agreement, but analysts polled by Vedomosti put it at up to $750 million, which would make it the second- largest deal recorded on the Moscow real estate market. A neighboring office center, White Square, was sold by the same development team in 2012 for $1 billion.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
