Mebe Group announces the delivery of Mebe One Khimki Plaza, an A+ office building located in the first line of Leningradskoye Highway and 1.5 km from the Moscow Ring Road. The construction of the business center started November 2012 and has been fulfilled in full accordance with the schedule. The first tenants are going to be able to move into the new high-class office by Q2 2014. Knight Frank, the world’s largest privately owned global property agency and consultancy, is the exclusive marketing and leasing agent of the property.

Mebe One Khimki Plaza is a 19-storeyed 44,000 sq m building with an underground parking and a helipad constructed to meet the LEED Gold certificate requirements. Mebe One Khimki Plaza is the first office property outside the Moscow Ring Road to receive a LEED certificate. Innovative technologies, highest quality of the construction works and cutting-edge equipment make Mebe One Khimki Plaza one of the best and most comfortable office environments in Russia.

The architectural concept of the complex was developed by award winning John McAslan + Partners. Apart from the comfortable and health caring work environment, the new building also features an array of unique and innovative services increasing the quality of office life, among which there are a helipad and rent-a-helicopter service on the accessible roof area of the building, shower rooms for tenant employees, chauffeured limo and car rental services, valet parking, charging units for electric and hybrid cars, and five star concierge services (event tickets, restaurant reservations, flower and gift deliveries, personal assistant services, translation/interpretation services, health consultancy etc). A complimentary Mebe shuttle bus is to circulate between the complex and Rechnoy Vokzal metro station every hour, offering 10-minute door-to-door rides to the tenants of the building.

The own infrastructure of the complex also features a spacious canteen from a leading food chain, a beauty salon, an infirmary and first-aid room, florist and newspaper stands, ATM machines, a car wash, and 2 kinds of parking lots – that for cars, and that for motorbikes and bicycles. The tenants are also welcome to use the fitness in the business center.

Mebe Development, LLC is part of Mebe Group. The company has been working in the Russian construction market since 1995. During this period, Mebe Group has built over 1 mln sq m of residential and commercial real estate property in various regions of Russia. Mebe One Khimki Plazа is the first project, which Mebe Group is the owner, investor, developer and turnkey contractor for.

Mustafa Bilek, Mebe Group President, comments: “Keeping the promises we give to our partners and clients is extremely important for us. The same could also be said about meeting the sheduled deadlines. We highly appreciate the confidence of our clients and we definitely do our best to put the office buildings outside Moscow to a new quality level. With our Mebe One Khimki Plaza, we were intending to create a completely comfortable and health friendly workplace. Also our tenants will enjoy a wide range of supporting services adding some pleasure and comfort to the time spent at the office.”

Konstantin Losiukov Director, Offices, Knight Frank: “Bringing such a high-quality property to the market is definitely going to influence the pattern of demand in the Moscow Region. Also worth mentioning is the decentralization trend observed during the past three years, according to which more and more companies choose offices located in a significant distance from the center of the city. This can be explained by the growing rental rates and a complicated local transport environment. In this regard, Mebe One Khimki Plaza seems to be a good contribution to such a fast growing part of the Moscow Region as Khimki.”
