God Nisanov and Zarakh Iliev: Russia’s biggest rentiers

23 January 2020


The owners of the Kievskaya Ploshchad Group of Companies topped Forbes' rankings as "Kings of Russian Real Estate 2020". This position has been held by God Nisanov and Zarakh Iliev since 2012.

Thanks to the successful implementation of the business strategy, the holding's portfolio of assets is focused on iconic objects that bring in the largest rental income among Russian rentiers. Among them is the most visited shopping mall in Europe, Evropeiskiy, Russia’s first and largest agrocluster FOOD CITY, and the legendary Radisson Collection Moscow (Ukraina Hotel).

Last year, God Nisanov and Zarakh Iliev’s group of companies carried out the DEPO gastronomic quarter project with the preliminary restoration of the oldest transport fleet in the capital, doubled the fleet of its own new format "Radisson Royal" Flotilla shipping company, acquired "Pavillon" on Patriarch’s Ponds, after open bidding was granted the right to build a commercial and office complex within the Nagatinskaya transport interchange hub, and agreement was reached to acquire the Central Market on Rozhdestvensky Boulevard.

Today, Kievskaya Ploshchad focuses on implementing large-scale, socially significant projects for Moscow. In 2020, the plan is to open the Shcholkovsky bus station after reconstruction, which investors have turned into a modern world-class transport hub. The reconstruction of Olympiyskiy, which by 2023, having retained its sporting function, will become the largest sports and entertainment complex with a concert hall, a centre for diving enthusiasts, a multiplex cinema and children's recreational centre and restaurants, is also in full swing.

God Nisanov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Kievskaya Ploshchad Group of Companies, comments:

"We are delighted that our achievements have been recognised in the rankings of such a respected publication as Forbes. Every year, Kievskaya Ploshchad grows new projects, develops and changes. We embody the most modern trends in the Russian commercial real estate market, use unique technologies and attract world-class professionals. At the same time, our main goal remains not only to make a profit - we take on those projects that will bring real benefits to Muscovites in the near future, improve the quality of the urban environment, and serve as a catalyst for the development of certain areas."
