Tycoon’s wife won’t tear down huge Conn. mansion
GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) – The wife of one of Russia’s richest men says she will not tear down a massive
mansion in Connecticut to build an even bigger one.
Olga Kogan had gotten zoning approval to level a 19,000-square-foot mansion in Greenwich and build a
21,000-plus-square-foot home.
Kogan is the wife of multimillionaire Valery Kogan. He is chairman of the East Line Group, which manages
Moscow’s Domodedovo International Airport.
Neighbors were opposed to the scale of the mansion and the disruption that construction would cause.
Kogan sent a letter to town officials last week saying she was surprised by the opposition and was
abandoning her plans.
Kogan bought the property in 2005 for $18.5 million.
