The construction of the Mayak Minska complex at the National Library is nearing completion. Chances to buy a new home here are dwindling. Apartments in the three houses – Gauguin, Raphael and Michelangelo – are for sale right now. However, only several dozen of them are still available!
At the same time, more and more people move into their new homes in Mayak Minska! Last Saturday the close-knit community of the complex welcomed 157 families who purchased apartments in the Raphael house. These people were invited for the preliminary acceptance of their new homes. They also got the keys to their new apartments!
By the way, the invitation to come and get the keys caught them by surprise, as the house was to be commissioned in August, but the commissioning took place on 31 January. The developer was more than half a year ahead of schedule! You can only imagine how happy the new homeowners were!
Sergei Mishchenko with his family will move into the new apartment in the Raphael house.
“Initially the reason why we decided to move here were our children. This is a new neighborhood, with a new school with a swimming pool, good infrastructure; all kinds of children's hobby clubs are nearby. Therefore, we decided to move into Mayak Minska,” Sergei Mishchenko said.
Sergei Mishchenko has a big family. Two of his kids go to school and his youngest kid is just a year and four months old. Therefore, children's infrastructure was an important part of the family's considerations.
“We have already registered to get a place in the kindergarten!” he said.
According to Sergei Mishchenko, initially they wanted an apartment with a great view.
“We really appreciate the help of the sales manager. We went upstairs on foot to the fifth floor, then to the seventh floor and we kept going up till we saw the view we had dreamed about,” Sergei said smiling.
The man is fully aware of the advantages of his new apartment.
“If we compare the price, quality and location, we will see that the price is absolutely fair. After all, the company gave us a good discount because we have a big family. We took out a 20-year loan of a partner bank. My wife and I view this apartment as a direct investment in the future of our children. I believe that we have made the right choice!” Sergei Mishchenko said.
Evgeny Imkhovik also purchased an apartment here. His new home is located on the 24th floor and this is his second apartment in the Mayak Minska complex!
“I have always wanted to have an apartment as high as possible. My first apartment in the Picasso house is on the 19th floor. Here I have decided to opt for the 24th floor. It has a great view of the library and the park. The higher the apartment, the better the view!” Evgeny said.
The young man thinks that the apartments in this place are worth their money.
“Especially since the developer offers regular promos. There are discounts, and you can buy an apartment even cheaper than the initially declared price! In my opinion, there is no better neighborhood in Minsk than Mayak Minska. It is gradually developing. When I moved here two years ago, there was not a single shop on Picasso Boulevard. Now it is full of them! Everything is really within a walking distance!” Evgeny smiles.
It is time to describe what Raphael looks like for those who would like to buy an apartment here.
It has a twin brother – Gauguin house.The 25-storey houses are combined into a single ensemble by a four-storey curved stylobate, which will house cafes and restaurants, shops and trendy salons, a wellness complex with a gym, swimming pool and spa.
If you go downstairs from your apartment, you will get into the center of all city's attractions!
The buildings are located on the bank of one of the canals of the Slepyanka water system – the view from the windows is absolutely stunning!
All apartments have a base-build concept. Apartments from 50m2 to 84m2 are left in the Raphael house, and from 47m2 to 77m2 in the Gauguin house. On offer are one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments in the European version when the living room is combined with the kitchen.
There will be a lot of light thanks to fully-glazed loggias on all residential floors. The apartments will feature floor-to-ceiling windows with special tinted glass, child safety locks and special unbreakable glazing at the bottom.
The designer lobby is bright and spacious, with high ceilings and a concierge stand. With a baby changing station available in the restroom there will be no need for young mothers to cut short their strolls and go upstairs. A dog paw washer will be surely appreciated by dog owners. The design of the lobbies was inspired by the artist whose name was given to the house.
The house will also feature home intercoms.
Each house will have three quiet high-speed elevators from the world's leading producer OTIS.
Families will small children will appreciate a kindergarten which is being constructed virtually in the courtyards of the Gauguin and Raphael houses. No early wake-ups and sleepy kids – you will be able to take your child to the kindergarten in three minutes.
The place is convenient for car owners as well – cars can be parked in outdoor parking lots located along the quarter's perimeter or in a spacious parking facility near the National Library across the street.
All this luxury is available in the near-complete Mayak Minska residential complex.
This is Minsk's first upscale neighborhood built in line with the “city inside the city” principle. That means that everything necessary for a comfortable life will be available within a walking distance.
The Mayak Minska complex is built near the National Library, overlooking a vast forested area, which means its residents will enjoy clean air and pleasant walks in quiet alleys along the canals.
A large-scale landscaping project was implemented in the complex, with more than 250 trees grown in the nursery planted.
Transport infrastructure is excellent here. The Vostok metro station and also numerous ground transport routes are all a short walk away.
Everything you need for a comfortable life is at hand! Kindergartens and schools, shops and boutiques, beauty salons and travel agencies, fitness centers and gyms – the complex has everything people might need.
Belarus' largest shopping and entertainment center Dana Mall is no doubt an important attraction for Minsk residents and guests.
Pedestrian-only Picasso Boulevard is another vibrant urban space that has already hosted numerous celebrations, fairs, and festivals.
The multimedia fountain Dana Dance has already become a new landmark of Minsk and a favorite place for residents of the complex and other Minskers.
The Mayak Minska complex is perfect for business. It boasts lots of commercial property that can be turned into shops, services outlets, beauty salons and cafes. The Dana Center business center is also located here. The foot traffic here is excellent. The Dana Mall shopping and entertainment center alone has around two million customers a month!

The best terms of sale include an excellent partner loan, leasing options, and a long-term installment plan without an interest rate or excess payments!

This is why special financial tools are offered – the company invites every family to become a homeowner!
Now is the right time to make your choice! A crisis is a good time to buy an apartment. It is a good time to sell an apartment when the price is at its peak.
What financial tools does the developer offer?
The long-term installment plan (up to five years in the Mayak Minska complex) from the real estate developer is an unbelievably advantageous financial tool! No interest rates, no excess payments, no attempts to inflate the price per square meter. You need neither income verifications nor guarantors to sign the contract. You only need your passport! The down payment can be as low as 30% of the apartment's cost.
Belarusbank's partner program Mortgage With Us looks attractive – the loan can cover up to 90% of the apartment's cost and can be repaid over the period of up to 20 years. The interest rate will be 4.74% per annum in the first year, 9.75% in the second year and the third one, and 14.19% later on.
A lending program from Priorbank is an interesting choice. The program is designed to last for five years and expects the buyer to make the down payment of at least 10% of the apartment's cost. The interest rate will be 5.99% in the first year and 14.18% later on.
Discounts are available to those, who are ready to pay the full price for an apartment right away with his or her own cash or bank loans!
