Babur Diker

CEO of
Wainbridge Russia

The construction of AQUATORIA started 4Q 2018, a lot of work has been done for the 3 past years: construction of four residential buildings with underground parking on a two-level stylobate, reconstruction of the coastline, that used to be inaccessible, construction start of Phase II, including educational center, — comments Babur Diker, CEO of Wainbridge Russia. — AQUATORIA is a significant project for us in terms of its sizes. From the very beginning we selected construction schedule and avoiding any timeline deviations as one our top priorities in the project and because of that we completed Phase I six months ahead of schedule despite difficulties appeared in the construction field in 2020-2021. And this proves better than anything that Wainbridge is a team of high-qualified professionals.

The AQUATORIA complex is located on the bank of the Moscow channel with a renovated 700-meters length embankment. The charges for the coastline reconstruction were paid from Wainbridge’s own budget, and the works now are at the final stage. The main element of the embankment will be the amphitheater for social events in combination with bicycle tracks, walkways with loungers and benches. In addition to that, the project will boast a spacious (7000sq.m.) green zone with over 300 trees and bushes: apple trees, maples, pines, shad and juniper bushes.

The construction schedule of the AQUATORIA residential complex consists of several parts. The Phase I customers will be able to move in already in 2022. The Phase II — building B3 of 204 apartments is scheduled for 3Q 2023.
It should be mentioned that the construction of a four—storey educational center has already been started; it will include 2 buildings within AQUATORIA’s complex: a school and a kindergarten for 300 places. The building boasts triangular shape, created by the Dutch bureau Kraaijvanger Architects. The operator of educational center will be the international school Leaders International. The center is planned to start functioning by the next academic year.

The governor of Primorsky Region Oleg Kozhemyako and the Head of Wainbridge Kirill Pisarev about cooperation
The Governor of Primorsky Region, Oleg Kozhemyako, met with the representatives of Wainbridge, Acons Group and Areal-Development to discuss the future of the Vladivostok real estate market. Kirill Pisarev and Ivan Ivanov, the Head and Development Director of Wainbridge, were glad to discuss with the Governer new standards of residential projects and infrastructure, opportunities to make Vladivostok more attractive for investments.

Kirill Pisarev thinks that business can improve situation with comfortable urban environment and the economy of the region. «New public territories attract more and more people, they bring deals and money. This influences land prices — they are growing. And we see that this old industrial zone can be a starting point, and near it prestigious residential complexes can find there place. The same happened to New York during the construction of the embankment from Manhattan to Chelsea, » said the Head of Wainbridge.

Mr. Pisarev also shared his impressions of Vladivostok. He visited the Far Eastern capital for the first time, got acquainted with different locations and noted that the city is lacking in public spaces: only few comfortable promenades, while Vladivostok has great reason to boast — the shore of the Bay... In his opinion, the increase of the number of recreation zones and the complex approach to the city renovation can be included in the list of priorities of Vladivostok.

The new concept of integrated territorial development (KRT — transliteration from Russian) was introduced by the Federal Law No. 494-FZ of December 30, 2020. The document regulates the institute of the KRT and the mechanisms for settling emergency and dilapidated housing. The owners of private houses, barracks and khrushchevkas that are in the renovation zone, will have to move in an equivalent houses/apartments in accordance with Article 32 of the Housing Code of the Russian Federation —the government purchases properties for a market price for federal or municipal needs.

The Governor of Primorsky Region Oleg Kozhemyako noted that there are city projects that deserve attention of federal developers. He thinks they can bring to the residential real estate market of Vladivostok fresh solutions in design for public spaces and territories, propose ergonomic planning solutions and relevant design ideas for interiors. Wainbridge intends to participate in the creation of new housing standards in the region and in the implementation of projects using its international expertise. The company is already working on the Novatoria project in partnership with Areal-Development. The government of Primorye expressed its readiness to contribute its part in realization of such important projects for the city

Wainbridge elected developer for Praga renovation
Wainbridge is glad to announce the newest addition to its collection of projects — the restaurant PRAGA located on Moscow’s Arbat. The international developer will be responsible for the complete project cycle: concept, renovation work management, sales.

Jacques Oudinot
Kirill Pisarev
Wainbridge International
Chairman  of the Board,
Wainbridge International

PRAGA is a truly piece of art, moreover, it’s a symbol of Moscow and we are determined to make a sensation on the market with PRAGA’s wonderful transformation in a new development unrivaled to others. We understand it will take all our developer’s expertise; it’ll be hard but rewarding work.

PRAGA is one of the legendary restaurants in Moscow, set in an Arbat historic building of 17th century. Originally it was a tenement owned by Vera Firsanova, a wealthy householder of those times. In 1872 it turned into a tavern Praga — there was a tendency to name buildings after European cities. Through years the restaurant underwent several reconstructions. It was one of the favourite places of Anton Chekhov, Lev Tolstoy, Ilya Repin, Fedor Shalyapin.

In 1902 it was renovated according with the masterplan by the famous Moscow architect Lev Kekushev. The facades that we can see now appeared only in 1914-1915, the famous architect Adolf Erichson rebuilt it by order of Tararykin. After the revolution, the restaurant was nationalized, it housed various stores, and in 1924 a public dining found its place in the PRAGA building.

After 1995 −1997 one more reconstruction the building lost almost all of the original interior décor. In 2018 PRAGA stopped functioning, and in October the building was auctioned. In April 2019 newspapers revealed Miroslav Melnik, most known as a businessman and restaurateur, purchased the restaurant and invited Wainbridge to renovate the building.
