Moscow is an unusually beautiful and very densely populated city. The number of its inhabitants is increasing due to natural growth, and due to visitors, a huge number of whom, having lived here for a while, also become Muscovites. And every person wants to have housing. The new residential complex “Heart of the Capital”, being built almost in the center of the city, will help to fulfill the dreams of several thousand Muscovites. This complex is designed so that its residents have everything at hand. We offer detailed information about how the construction of the residential complex is carried out, and about the features of buying real estate here.
Residential complex "Heart of the capital" began to be erected in the North-Western administrative district of the Russian capital. It will be an amazingly beautiful place a stone's throw from the banks of the Moscow River, however, in order for gardens to grow here, you need to reanimate the soil. The traffic intersection is now convenient for car enthusiasts, as the Yaroslavskoye Shosse passes near the ZhK, the TTK is just 1,600 meters, Kutuzovsky Prospekt is 4 km, Garden Ring is 8 km, and Moscow Ring Road is 13 km. For those who use public transport and, in particular, the subway, while the amenities are small. The “Heart of the Capital” residential complex, as planned by the designers, will grow relatively close to several metro stations, such as Mezhdunarodnaya, Vystavochnaya, Fili, Khoroshevo, but they need to be reached by bus. Walk to the nearest "International" at an average pace to go more than half an hour. But in the future, in the immediate vicinity of the residential complex, it is planned to open a new Shelepikha station, which can be reached on foot for a couple of minutes.
An undoubted plus is the fact that the Heart of Moscow complex is being built about 3 km from the Moscow City DC.
What's next to the LCD
Those who have already bought or are going to buy apartments in a new residential complex have many questions about the correct choice of location for the “Heart of the Capital” residential complex. Everyone knows that the industrial zone is located around it. And it scares people. Not far from the future handsome complex, there are silicate and cement plants, concrete goods plants, industrial warehouses. They promise to close them, demolish the buildings, and build urban infrastructure at that place, but no one has seen the demolition plan yet. People are also alarmed by a pre-trial detention center located in about one and a half km, which no one is planning to transfer. And finally, the third object, which haunts many, is a cargo station and a railway station. a branch that runs a few hundred meters from the “Heart of the Capital”. While it is considered reserve, therefore, the movement of trains on it is rare. But there are fears that they plan to make this branch a passenger one and run fast trains on it.
Information about the developer
Perhaps, it is already known to everyone that the residential complex “Heart of the Capital” has one of the most venerable developers in Moscow, the leader among the city’s real estate developers holding Don-Stroy. The company was founded in 1994 and at first was engaged in both residential and commercial real estate. In 2009, the restructuring was carried out, and now Don-Stroy Invest is engaged in housing, although the old Donstroy brand has been preserved. The new structure is owned by 5 legal shareholders who do not disclose their names. During the restructuring period, the company was shocked by economic turmoil, and the inability of Donstroy to pay off debts forced attempts to sell subsidiaries for pennies. But afterwards everything somehow settled down. Now Donstroy is among the ten largest construction companies in the capital and is engaged in the construction of a business-class residential complex.
In his piggy bank "Scarlet Sails", "Grand DeLux on Plyushchikha", "Triumph Palace" and many others. In 2013, Donstroy turned its eyes to the Shelepikhinskaya embankment, where in 2014 the construction of the new residential complex “Heart of the Capital” began. What are the advantages investors see in this company? First of all, these are indicators of their work, namely, already completed facilities. What worries people? Firstly, the deterioration in the quality of work, a striking indicator of what the falling elevators. The last incident occurred at the yet unsubmitted facility "Heart of the Capital", where 5 workers were killed immediately. There are complaints about the quality of internal work in apartments. Secondly, violation of contractual terms. The Novolipetsk MK even sued Donstroy over the deadline for putting the house
in Mosfilmovskaya Street. Regarding the LCD “Heart of the Capital”, a deviation from the previously planned key collection dates is also planned. For example, ZhD5 according to official documents will not be delivered by March 31, 2020, but by October 31, 2020, that is, 7 months later. And the last thing that alarms people is the frequent litigation with Donstroi. They were about the house on Mosfilmovskaya Street, the Komsomolsky de Lux apart-hotel, with investigative authorities about financial violations and others.
The residential complex “Heart of the Capital” was designed by SPEECH, an architectural workshop well-known in the capital. It is led by Sergei Choban. Specialists thought up on 14 hectares reserved for the complex to create a whole small town. It is planned to build 11 buildings in total. Of these, 6 residential, 4 apart and 1 business center.
Around will be a park with playgrounds, recreational facilities with fountains and gazebos, equipped with playgrounds for sports, roller skating, dog walking. There will also be bicycle paths. On the territory of the complex, builders will erect kindergartens, schools, a sports complex with a pool and a fitness center, restaurants, shops, pharmacies, a pond, which turns into a skating rink in winter. There is information that the residential complex will be fenced, a “zone without cars” will be created inside, since it is planned to build an underground parking in 4 levels. It is planned to place video cameras there, as well as on the territory of the LCD, in order to enhance the safety of residents.
As planned by the designers, it should become an adornment of the embankment and the entire district of the residential complex "Heart of the Capital". Moscow is a city in which there are many new buildings, which, when looked at, are breathtaking. The nearest is the chic DC “Moscow City”. Architects tried to make the new complex look no less grandiose. All residential buildings in it will be of different heights, from 19 to 37 floors. The apartments will have large panoramic windows, a stylish design, designers have not provided for balconies . The apartments are planned to be rented without finishing, and some without a factory inside the main communications, so that the tenants themselves decide where to install the bathtub or how many toilets to make in the apartment. Finishing work will not be done so that people can create a design in the apartments to their liking. The apartments in the complex will range from 34 squares to 138 squares, and the ceiling height - depending on the project - 3.2 and up to 5.6 meters. In this case, the living area of all premises will be 352,144 square meters. Taking into account the wishes of investors, a small part of the apartments "Donstroy" plans to hand over with all communications and decoration.

Price and payment
The cost of housing in the residential complex "Heart of the Capital" is high and, as stated on the official website, started from 8,122,592 Russian rubles for a one-room apartment on the second floor (ground floors are designed to accommodate offices there), an area of 32.8 square meters without decoration. At this facility, Donstroy works with the following banks: VTB-24, Otkritie, and Sberbank. Everyone can take a mortgage to purchase real estate in the "Heart of the Capital". The conditions for its receipt are different.
In “VTB-24” there are preferential programs for holders of salary cards of this bank. When receiving a loan for 30 years, the rate is 12.1% with an initial payment of 10%. For those who do not have such cards, the initial payment is 20%.

- Mortgage with state support. Here the lowest rate is 11.4%, the initial payment is 20%.
Otkritie Bank has its own lending programs.
Innovative program from the developer
To increase sales growth and attract more buyers to the program, Donstroy proposed a very interesting and, one might say, innovative program for buying housing in the residential complex “Heart of the Capital”. According to company representatives, it is proposed to draw up a contract certified by legal structures, according to which Donstroy undertakes to buy out its real estate exactly 3 years later from the co-investor at the price that was at the time of sale. In this case, the company must additionally pay co-investor 4.5% per annum.
LCD "Heart of the capital": deadline
This question worries both those who have already bought their homes, and those who are just eyeing. Looking at the state of the facilities being built, we can confidently say that things are not standing still. According to the new plan, the delivery of the first stage with the issuance of keys is expected in the fourth quarter of 2017. It included buildings numbered 1,2 and 3. The first is a 37-storey building number 1, the keys to the apartments in which people should receive in the second quarter, that is, the first half of 2017. In the second turn, it is planned to put into operation buildings No. 4, 5, 6 and 7.
At the first stage, ZhD4 (the second quarter of 2018) should be commissioned, and at the second building 5.6 and 7 (the fourth quarter of 20218). The third stage includes 2 apart-buildings, a business center, a school and a kindergarten. Their delivery, possibly, will be carried out in 2020. The builders began the construction of the second stage, as evidenced by the progress of construction of the railway station 4. LCD “Heart of the capital” in 2015 opened the sale of apartments in it. Now they are selling housing in ZhD6. Today, the first building is almost finished, the construction of the second and third is nearing completion, and in the fourth all construction work is proceeding rapidly.
