According to Forbes 2013, Moscow has the largest community of billionaires in the world. In 2008, Moscow had 74 billionaires
with an average wealth of $5.9 billion, which placed it above New York's 71 billionaires. However, as of 2009, there are
only 27 billionaires in Moscow compared with New York's 55 billionaires. Based on Forbes' 2011-list of the world's billionaires,
Moscow is the city with the most billionaires in the world, with 79 from 115 in all of Russia. The nouveau riche, also called
the 'New Russians', often in a derogatory sense, have a reputation for flaunting their wealth; the avenues for doing so have
increased in recent times - a sense of fashion and self-consciousness has instilled itself through the many haute couture
and haute cuisine spots in Moscow.

Moscow International Business Center also referred to as New-City is a commercial district in central Moscow.
The Moscow IBC is expected to become the first zone in Russia to combine business activity, living space and
entertainment in one single development. The Moscow government conceived the project in 1992.
An estimated 300,000 people will be working in, living in, or visiting the complex at any given time.
Europe's tallest building is Mercury City Tower is constructed on the territory of Moscow IBC. Furthermore, the complex includes
third-tallest, fourth-tallest, fifth-tallest buildings in Europe. The Federation Tower is currently under construction,
and is going to be the next tallest building in Europe, even taller than Mercury City Tower, in 2015.
In order to manage the project, a public company CITY was founded in 1992, which is responsible for overseeing
the initial creation and development of Moscow City as well as its subsequent exploitation. CITY is also
a general contractor and both landlord and lessor. The construction of the Moscow IBC is taking place
on the Presnenskaya embankment of the Moscow River approximately 4 kilometers west of Red Square.
Before construction began, the area represented an old stone quarry where most of the buildings were
factories and industrial complexes that had been closed or abandoned.
The total cost of the project is estimated at $12 billion.
A high-rise building complex is still under construction.
