Crocus City Mall
Developed by Aras Agalarov's Crocus International, the site is located near the Moscow Oblast Administrative HQ, just outside Moscow's MKAD ring road. Built of natural stone in a mixture between neo-classical and oriental architectural styles, the two-storey building opened in 2002.
The Crocus Group paid for the Moscow Metro railway station at Myakinino to be additionally planned and built on the extension of the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line, located between Volokolamskaya and Strogino stations. Added as a single-platform ground-based station, it was built as a two-platform underground development, thanks to Crocus's funding input. Myakinino opened on 26 December 2009, the first station to be built outside Moscow.
Today it houses retailers, including:
- Clothing: Agent Provocateur, Aquascutum, Armani, Calvin Klein, JLO by Jennifer Lopez, Philipp Plein, Vivienne Westwood
- Children's wear: Steiff
- Housewares: Royal Doulton
- Accessories: Bally, Faberge, Land Rover, Wedgwood
Since 2011, Crocus hosts annual video game exhibition Igromir, which was moved there from VDNKh exhibition center due to an increasing number of visitors. Over a hundred thousand visitors attend Igromir in Crocus each year. In 2014 Crocus also hosted the first Comic-Con Russia.
