The scheme’s concept and project documents have been composed by GUP MNIIP Mosproject-4, the general contractor is PSP FARMAN, and the technical contactor is General directorate ‘Center’. Property and facility management is being undertaken by RBE Group. CSKA Arena is to be commissioned in August 2016.

Elizaveta Golysheva, National Director, Head of Office Agency, JLL Russia & CIS, comments: “CSKA Arena is a long-expected iconic project that merges the realms of sport and real estate. From a commercial real estate perspective, it combines a great north-west district location in high demand from tenants, excellent transport access, the most popular office class (B+), high-quality engineering and technical specifications, a comfortable green environment, well-developed local infrastructure, and the famous CSKA brand. The office space at CSKA Arena will prove attractive for any company considering the opportunity to lease or purchase good offices in comfortable conditions at a great location.”

Andrey Zarubian, Chief commercial officer, CSKA PFC, adds: “CSKA Arena is a unique project combining several important functions. The scheme has been designed and is being constructed in accordance with international-quality development standards. On the one hand the office element reflects the CSKA brand, and on the other it represents an independent business centre with separate entrances, a modern design and excellent technical specifications including professional soundproofing and security systems, as well as support services for tenants and visitors to the buildings. Thus, both sport and business functions will be able to work in synergy or on their own at the same time. We are confident that JLL’s experienced team will help us to successfully lease and sell office space in the business centre.”


CSKA PFC is the most successful and award-winning Russian football club within the last 15 years, the first Russian winner of the UEFA Cup 2005 and reigning national champion.
