Turkey's Enka to Replace Small Mall With Giant Mall in North Moscow

Moscow's Urban Development and Land Commission has approved plans to construct a giant mall and apartment complex on Sheremetyevskaya Ulitsa in north-central Moscow, according to information on the website of Moskomstroiinvest, a department of City Hall that oversees construction in the capital.

According to the Vedomosti business daily, the 205,000 square meter complex will be built in place of Kapitoliy, a 29,600 square meter shopping center owned by Turkish company Enka.

Enka is the investor in the new project, a Moskomstroiinvest representative told the paper. Sayan Tsyrenov, director of Capital Markets at real estate firm Colliers International, estimated the project's value at $12-16 billion,  according to Vedomosti.

Despite an oncoming recession that has dampened the pace of real estate construction in Moscow Enka may start construction this year, three consultants working with the company told the paper.

… 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.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
