Roman Abramovich bought the fourth house in new York

Roman Abramovich, Russian businessman and billionaire, bought another, already the fourth, the house on East 75th Street. Now the building at 9 E. 75th St. is part of the whole collection of the new York real estate tycoon, which also includes home 11, 13 and 15 on the same street.

Abramovich had hoped to unify the houses No. 11, 13 and 15 to create one of the largest houses in the city. But then the 9 became available for purchase and multipolarity billionaire could not resist. Fortunately his condition size 9.6 billion is enough for such purchases.

The man believes that 9, 11 and 13 of the house will look better together, and by combining them, he will get a real Royal Palace in the heart of new York. The New York Post, referring to the architects involved in the change project houses, writes that such a combination will allow you to achieve a beautiful symmetrical facade.

Yet it is unclear what Abramovic plans to do with the structure at 15 E. 75th St. If he suddenly decides to combine all 4 of their possessions, he will get the biggest houseever existed in the Big Apple.

Such a prospect is not happy the mayor of new York bill de Blasio, who, apparently, feels almost personal dislike to the Russian oligarchs, who, in his opinion, «robbed their country with their own government».

De Blasio noted that he would like to place a lawthat could help him to prevent the oligarchs to buy up property in the city, because he sees this as a real problem that need to do something.

«… people who earn his untold wealth by dishonest means, buying huge amounts of real estate in the city. I don’t like it. I wish I had a specific law or another approach to solving this problem. I have not yet found any way. It’s sad».

The mayor also added that any additional tax revenues coming to the city budget from such deals, not worth through his fingers to look at how foreigners buy homes in the city to launder money.

Abramovich, who, according to rumors, made his money in rigged privatisation auctions, in total spent $ 96 million on the four objects from the collection of the new York real estate, according to authorities, was acquired by its limited liability companies.
