How Vladimir Kim's middle daughter received a $ 60 million coming of age gift

Google trans­lat­ed

@offshoress “Access to the Sea” man­aged to find three apart­ments in the cen­ter of London, owned by Camilla Kim , the mid­dle daugh­ter of busi­ness­man Vladimir Kim . All of them are locat­ed in fash­ion­able res­i­dences in the very cen­ter of the British cap­i­tal near Hyde Park: two in the same build­ing and on the same floor and the third in a res­i­dence near­by, the lat­ter com­plex of build­ings being con­sid­ered the most expen­sive apart­ment build­ing in the world.

Vladimir Kim made his for­tune on the sale of min­er­al resources: now the busi­ness­man owns a third part of KAZ Minerals PLC , more than two-thirds of him owns Kazakhmys Corporation LLP , a major­i­ty stake in Bank RBK , he invests in media — for exam­ple, the Tan TV and radio com­pa­ny .

According to Forbes, Vladimir Kim’s for­tune in December 2020 was $ 4.1 bil­lion — he is num­ber one in the list of the rich­est peo­ple in Kazakhstan and num­ber two in the list of the most influ­en­tial people.

Its main asset — the Kazakhmys group — was cre­at­ed on the basis of the Soviet enter­prise Zhezkazgantsvetmet in 1992. Initially, shares in it belonged to the state (80%) and the col­lec­tive of the enter­prise. In the mid-90s, the state share was trans­ferred to the Korean cor­po­ra­tion Samsung on the basis of own­er­ship rights, then passed into the pos­ses­sion of the cur­rent shareholders.

Kazakhmys has been repeat­ed­ly linked to the first pres­i­dent of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev. So, before list­ing the com­pa­ny on the London Stock Exchange, Global Witness, an inter­na­tion­al non-gov­ern­men­tal orga­ni­za­tion that aims to com­bat human rights vio­la­tions by coun­tries export­ing nat­ur­al resources, pub­lished a report in which it sug­gests that the pres­i­dent has a sig­nif­i­cant influ­ence on the Kazakhsmys group. In par­tic­u­lar, Vladimir Ni, the chair­man of the board of direc­tors of Corporation Kazakhmys LLP ( we wrote about the assets of his fam­i­ly in France ), worked for a long time in lead­ing posi­tions in the pres­i­den­tial administration.

Nursultan Nazarbayev’s broth­er Bolat was a mem­ber of the board of direc­tors of Kazakhmys in 2004, before list­ing in London, and Vladimir Kim him­self was a mem­ber of the polit­i­cal coun­cil of the rul­ing Nur Otan par­ty. He also head­ed the Karaganda region­al branch of the Republican pub­lic cam­paign head­quar­ters of Nazarbayev in the 2005 campaign.

In January 2017, Camilla Kim turned 18. In the same year, in October, on one day, she acquired two apart­ments on the fifth floor of The Knightsbridge Apartments , which is locat­ed in the Knightsbridge dis­trict of London.

The first, cheap­er, cost her £ 6 mil­lion , the sec­ond — £ 8 mil­lion , so the total pur­chase was £ 14 mil­lion .

Access to the sea” has already writ­ten about this house: in it, on the eighth floor, an apart­ment was bought by a firm owned by the fam­i­ly of the chair­man of the Odal par­ty Serik Sultangaliyev . Sultangaliev’s wife and daugh­ter bought the apart­ment two years ear­li­er than Camilla Kim — in 2015 — and it is sig­nif­i­cant­ly cheap­er, £ 5.2 million.

The para­me­ters of both of Kim’s apart­ments are unknown, but right now you can look at prop­er­ties sim­i­lar in price. For £ 7.2 mil­lion — more expen­sive than Camilla Kim’s small­er apart­ment, but cheap­er than the larg­er one — a three-room res­i­dence with three bed­rooms (each equipped with its own bath­room and toi­let), a large liv­ing room and a kitchen is being sold. The total area of ​​this apart­ment is about 160 square meters.

That is, the area of ​​Camilla Kim’s two neigh­bor­ing apart­ments in this res­i­dence can be esti­mat­ed at no less than 300 m².

Housing in the most expensive house in the world

The Knightsbridge area is locat­ed in the heart of London, right next to Buckingham Palace. In 2011, right next to Hyde Park, the One Hyde Park res­i­dence was com­plet­ed — this com­plex of build­ings is called “the most expen­sive in the world” at the price of a square meter. The cost of apart­ments there reach­es hun­dreds of mil­lions of pounds .

From here you have a great view of Knightsbridge and Hyde Park. One Hyde Park offers lux­u­ry liv­ing in London at its best, ”real­tors adver­tise the res­i­den­tial complex.

One Hyde Park Residence

As you approach, you notice that you are being scanned by guards in bowlers, who look like the team in charge of guard­ing a mil­i­tary base, not an apart­ment build­ing in cen­tral London,” the anony­mous author of Business Insider described the building.

The same author empha­sized that this build­ing is “a man­i­fes­ta­tion of a class that believes itself to be sep­a­rat­ed from the rest of soci­ety and hap­py to live in iso­la­tion from it.”

Camilla Kim took over the apart­ment in this com­plex in June 2017. In addi­tion to the hous­ing itself, the prop­er­ty also includes a park­ing space and a wine cel­lar — these are sep­a­rate premis­es on the under­ground lev­els. The apart­ment is locat­ed on the third floor of Building B.

The cost of this prop­er­ty is £ 27.5 mil­lion . As in the case of the first apart­ment, “Access to the Sea” does not have spe­cif­ic para­me­ters of the apart­ment, and can only be com­pared with sim­i­lar­ly priced prop­er­ties for sale.

Even one-room apart­ments in this build­ing have an area of ​​about 100 m². Apartments with three and four bed­rooms are sell­ing for £ 16- £ 28 million.

Camilla Kim’s apart­ment is also on the third floor, but in build­ing B

Here is the plan for the apart­ment on the third floor in build­ing D: four bed­rooms (each with its own bath­room and toi­let), a kitchen, a din­ing room, a liv­ing room of almost 60 m² and a ter­race. The total area of ​​such an apart­ment is almost 365 m².

But that is not all. In addi­tion to a 21-meter swim­ming pool, pri­vate spa, saunas, squash court and cin­e­ma, res­i­dents can enjoy 24-hour staff at the near­by Mandarin Oriental.

From a bird’s eye view, the build­ings of One Hyde Park look like the Imperial stormtroop­ers from “Star Wars” — but the win­dows over­look Hyde Park.

Thus, the total val­ue of the three prop­er­ties is £ 41.5 mil­lion, or about $ 58 mil­lion .
