  2. One of Russia's top development firms, Regions Group, will build a "Moscow version of Disneyland," a theme park under the brand of Hollywood's DreamWorks Animation in the south of Moscow, as the first step to setting up three such parks for a total of $1 billion, Vedomosti reported last week.

    A City Hall source said the park would be built in the Nagatino neighborhood, near the industrial zone of the former ZIL car factory, the newspaper reported.
    Next to the park, a new metro station Technopark will be built shortly on the green line.
    "The park will not be very big, so it may soon pay off," Rodionov said.

    - What companion property, except the indoor park will be in the project? What are you planning to build there and what rate investment in the project?

    - It is not just a theme park. We construct a large multifunctional complex, much of which takes the theme park, and the remaining area will be devoted to a shopping center, a concert hall, a hotel with 500 rooms and parking.
    first park we plan to open in St. Petersburg in 2015, the second - in Yekaterinburg in early 2016 year, and a third in Moscow - in 2017.
    On average area of these parks will be about 100 thousand square meters, and height - 35 meters. Budget that we spend on the implementation of each object, according to preliminary estimates will be at least $ 700 million.

  5. Park visitors will have a chance to get fully immersed in the world of DreamWorks Animation’s beloved franchises including Shrek, Madagaskar, Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon, and others.

    The park will feature multiple amusement rides and attractions, live entertainment events, theme restaurants and many other things. In addition to the theme park, the multifunctional complex will also include a retail and entertainment center, a multi-purpose concert and movie hall, a multiplex with an IMAX movie theater, a three-star 500-room hotel, and a park and garden area with a theme sculpture park, ponds, and fountains.

    The total area of the theme park and the retail and entertainment center will be 70,000 sq. m and 100,000 sq. m, respectively.

    The Regions GC and the City Administration of St Petersburg signed a cooperation agreement to build a DreamWorks indoor theme park in the city. This memorable event took place within the framework of the 16th International Trade Fair for Property and Investment Expo Real 2013 held in Munich from October 7 to October 9.
    In turn, the Regions GC commits to complete the park construction before December 25, 2016
    The park development is an important investment project for the city, as the investment company is going to invest about USD 500 million in it. The project is being implemented under the exclusive licensing agreement between the Regions GC and DreamWorks Animation SKG, an American animation studio.
    Overall, at present, there are plans to develop three theme parks in Russia, one in each of the three cities – St Petersburg, Moscow, and Yekaterinburg. These are to become the largest indoor theme parks in Europe.

    DreamWorks Theme Park to Open in St. Petersburg in 2017

    October 08, 2013, 8:11, (Property Xpress) - A DreamWorks theme park is to be built in St. Petersburg’s Krasnogvardeysky district by 2017

  8. This is really going ahead!

    Russian banking giant Sberbank has provided a $500m credit line to Russia's Regions Group of shopping centre builders and managers to construct three large-scale theme parks licensed by Hollywood's DreamWorks Studios, to refinance other debt and expand existing malls.

  9. Today in the Moscow Times:

    A major property developer is waiting for approval from St. Petersburg to build a $500 million theme park based around DreamWorks characters like Shrek by 2015.

    Regions Group, Russia's fourth-largest retail property owner, wants to build an indoor park with 40 attractions and a three-star hotel with 400 rooms on a 35-hectare plot of land in the city's Krasnogvardeysky district, company official Olga Kudrina said.

    "We want to start construction by the end of the year, and if that happens, we will be able to implement our project in 2015," she told a meeting of the St. Petersburg governor's investment council on Monday, RIA Novosti reported.

    Regions Group entered into a licensing agreement with U.S.-based DreamWorks Animation earlier this year and also hopes to open similar indoor theme parks in Moscow and Yekaterinburg by 2015, according to information on both company's websites.

    Regions Group is asking St. Petersburg City Hall to change the status of the desired land plot, currently designated as an industrial zone, to allow construction to start.

    Kudrina said 15 billion rubles has been allotted for the park, which is to be based on characters from the film franchises "Shrek," "Madagascar" and "Puss in Boots."

    St. Petersburg Governor Georgy Poltavchenko said Monday that his office would make a decision within two weeks.

    The plans for the three Russian cities call for the first Disneyland-style theme parks in the country. Once completed, they would be the largest indoor theme parks in Europe, with each boasting a mixed-use movie and concert hall, 4D movie theater and a retail center with 11,000 parking spaces, in addition to the attractions and hotel.

    "The height of each park will be 35 meters, comparable to a 13-floor building, giving visitors the sense of being outdoors," DreamWorks said in a statement in February.
