Who Wants an Apartment In Vladivostok?

Posted on August 16, 2011 by team

One square meter in this apartment block in Vladivostok costs 100,000 rubles (3600 dollars) and that is not a joke. Probably the high prize is due to a comfortable district, three universities and bus stops beside it. Let’s see the apartments closer.

    of course it cost that much, how else would they be able to renovate it?

  2. Verto says:

    Luxury at “Russian style” ! ! ! !

  3. Kent_Diego says:

    It could use some paint and cleaning up but location is more important. The price a lot lower than anything you can buy in any major California city. No photo’s of actual apartment but I am sure they must be nice.

  4. George Johnson says:

    Oh my……

    That black paint in the hallways makes it seem so much more cheerful and bright!

  5. Arctic Tough says:

    So sad that ppl would be forced more or less to have to pay that much for something that by all accounts, should be condemned. Now if they were new apartments with awesome amenities, etc, then yes, perhaps that would be a reasonable price. Anyway, thanks Valeria for sharing. Have a great day!

    This is a curse which plagues the real estate markets of all countries –
    how is it with declining birthrates that real estate keeps going up and up? In Soviet Times, they simply would have built more apartments.

    In contemporary times, city councils put in absurd regulation to create an artificial shortage

    Looks like the perfect place to film the next Tool video!

  8. Zonda says:

    With some horror movies casted there, the locators will have enough money to restore the building…

  9. Musa says:

    What a trashy heap of concrete! I could NEVER live in a place like that even if it was FREE.

  10. Otis R. Needleman says:

    Disgusting. Looks like something out of Detroit, Oakland, or East St. Louis.

  11. Stefan094 says:

    Slipknot should definetyly do a music video in this building….

  12. bijdehans says:

    I wonder, what kind of mentality does allow that to happen, it didn’t get that way overnight, did it? The old bomb shelters we saw earlier looked more cosy…

  13. Boritz says:

    If one doesn’t already have enough reasons to not live in Vladivostok, this should suffice.

  14. Boston Bloke says:

    Yes, it is expensive. But do the renters get a subsidy? The tenants might not be paying very much out of pocket.

  15. Richard W. says:

    Russia looks like a depressing dump, either the very wealthy politico or squalor and hunger. Glad I live in the US.

    • PAPO says:

      Dude, Projects in Chicago, Brooklyn, Harlem, Compton Oakland are the same or far worse than this place. I doubt people here have to eat, sit and watch tv on the floor because of gun violence outside. Scum is scum may it be Russia, Ukraine or Good Ol USA.

    • Mi says:

      Yes, because in the Russia everyone is poor and everyone lives in 50yo houses like this, but in the US there are no ghettos or old houses, everyone is rich and all houses are clean and new…. right?!

  16. marxistworker says:

    The neglect and decay of unregulated capitalism.

  17. René De Beaumarchais says:

    Pretty Russian Vic’s Secret-worthy roommates would make living in such dump a tad better and it’s not saying much even then.

  18. CZenda says:

    Sad heritage of the Soviet past. Note the absence of thermal insulation on the outer walls. I am sure the bills for the heat wasted in winter must be enormous.

    • CZenda says:

      Of course it is. Want example? I do not know of any Czechs working as gastarbeiters in former CCCP, but 99% of the construction workers who renovate these ugly Commie-built housing estates here speak Ukrainian or Russian. The idea of low-cost prefab housing successfully implemented here before the 1948 Commie putsch, which was BTW directly orchestrated from Moscow, was altogether different. It was dependant on so called “Finnish houses” (although they were developped in Sweden) made of wood.

  19. silvio says:

    Does anyone believe that? Prices in Moscow city centre are that much and even 2-3 Times higher. But not in a 600t populated city at the end of the world!

  20. BlowME says:

    With that kind of level of mafia and corruption in this city, no wonder…

  21. Alex says:

    3600 $ per square meter is ridiculous if true. In the eastern german province one can buy properly maintained real estate for 10% of that because there are more houses than tenants.

  22. 100 says:

    i know this place – real ghetto

    This is “mighty” Russia

  25. Misha says:

    This is a joke, I think!
