VLADISLAV DORONIN, 52
Founder and chairman, Capital Group
Real estate developer Doronin — worth about $1 billion and dubbed the “Donald Trump of Russia” — founded Moscow-based Capital Group in 1991.
Since then, its portfolio has ballooned to include more than 70 luxury residential and commercial projects worldwide.
Doronin is also the majority owner of the holding company for the ultra-luxe Aman Resorts.
While fellow Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich is famous for plucking up luxury real estate for himself and his family to occupy, Doronin is focused on residential developments for others.
He’s snapping up East Coast properties with unstoppable gusto, teaming with developer Ugo Colombo to build the Brickell Flatiron, a chic, curvy, 65-story skyscraper in Miami.
In NYC, Doronin partnered with Michael Shvo to buy floors 4 though 24 (roughly 290,000 square feet) of the Crown Building on Fifth Avenue — likely destined to become luxury condos.
