Forbes Uses COLDY’s Projects to Study Mixed-use Real Estate


Mixed-use real properties are definitely a key global trend of our time. Experts agree that the future lies with “a city within a city” format projects providing their residents with an easy reach to all necessary infrastructure. Forbes’ team analyzed foreign experience in mixed-use developments and, using COLDI’s projects, studied how the mixed-use trend is being implemented in Russia.

Previously, developers were also required to carry a certain public load, where each residential complex was accompanied by the construction of a next-door school, kindergarten and supermarket spaces provided on ground floors as part of a mandatory plan. Nowadays, many services and leisure spaces – from storage areas to fitness clubs, art galleries, language and cooking schools, and even in-house landscaped parks – are located within the complexes themselves providing their residents with everything they need at their doorstep.

 TALLER’S class A business space combines eco trends, safe and contact-free environment principles and a prime location. When choosing a space for its head office, a tenant commends the complex for its prestige and transport accessibility, innovative and environmentally friendly construction approach, technological efficiency, self-sufficiency of the business environment facility and the privacy of its residents.

Building complexes with a maximum number of internal infrastructure facilities is another global trend in the development market. A notable example of a metropolitan community-style development is N’ICE LOFT business-class project boasting a full-fledged infrastructure and a large-scale sports ecosystem. It is being built in one of Moscow’s most promising and investment attractive locations – the Nizhegorodsky District, which, according to The Meters’, leads the rental yield rating. By 2024, when the complex is put into operation, the projected yield of its lots is estimated at 40%.

The principle of creating a socially focused environment is fully in line with another global trend – the “silver economy”. Almost every fourth Moscow resident has reached the retirement age. It is quite natural that people from this target group see staying healthy and keeping fit as their priority. The new premium-class complex Kazakov Grand Loft being built in the historical part of Moscow fully meets the new trend. The concept of the complex is based on the principles of mindful comfort of living in a metropolis. More than a hundred planning solutions include cozy studios with panoramic windows, multi-room apartments and commercial premises with ceiling heights from 3.2 m to 4.2 m. The top floors feature luxury penthouses offering panoramic views of Moscow and spacious roof terraces. With ceiling heights of 5.7 m, they can easily accommodate a mezzanine floor.
