Roman Abramovich Needs Landmarks Approval for NY Mansion

Roman Abramovitch Takes The Stand As Boris Berezovsky Sues Him For Billions

Roman Abramovich has asked New York City’s Landmarks Preservations Committee to approve his plans to combine three old townhouses on East 75th Street into one new mega mansion, The New York Post has reported.

But approval is not a sure thing by any stretch.

A spokesperson at the Landmarks Preservation Commission told the New York Observer, “It would be very unusual for the committee to permit a tear-down in a historic district. Any house in a landmark district has the same protections as an individual landmark.”

The three properties were acquired over many years. The steel tycoon bought an 11 E 75th St. property for $29.7 million last October. That property has 9, 495 square feet of space. In December, he purchased a 7, 386 square foot house two doors down at 15 E. 75th St. for $18.3 million. The purchase of the property that lies between these two at 13th E 75th Street is currently being negotiated with the owners, the Fife family. It was purchased in 2000 for $7.4 million, but could be worth $20 million.
