Revenge of the Russians

New, 3 comments

Though rumors of their return to the Manhattan market began spreading over the summer, it took a few big deals (like Prokhorov getting mixed up in Atlantic Yards) to really put the icing on this babka: The Russians are back! So writes the Moscow Times, which quotes some familiar names on this side of the world. Like Brown Harris Stevens broker Wilbur Gonzalez, who says, "I expected the Russians to sit out 2009 and 2010, licking their wounds." He recently showed a $45 million property to three potential Russian buyers (wonder which one) and "signed an almost $20 million deal with an unnamed Russian buyer for another property." That's 581 million rubles! [Moscow Times via StreetEasy]
